RIO GRANDE, Ohio — Sarah Huchet had four goals and a pair of assists, while Taryn Pardoe added three goals and five assists of her own to lead the University of Northwestern Ohio in a 12-0 thrashing of the University of Rio Grande, Saturday evening, in non-conference women’s soccer action at Evan E. Davis Field.

Frida Bremer contributed two goals and an assist in the winning effort, while Laura Stone also scored twice and Anja Koempel had a goal and an assist for the Racers, whose first-year program is off to an impressive 5-2 start.

Rio Grande, which was coming off of a record-setting 16-0 win over Kentucky Christian University on Wednesday, was outshot 31-3.

Pardoe scored all of her goals in the first half and Huchet netted two of her four markers before the break, as UNOH rolled to a 7-0 lead at the intermission.

Bremer’s second goal of the contest at the 52:52 mark made it 8-0, before consecutive goals by Huchet and both of Stone’s goals rounded out the scoring.

Rachel Head, Anja Antholzner and Jade Widdows added one assist each for the Racers, while Nadine Stonjek was credited with one save in goal.

Junior net-minder Allison Keeney (Cincinnati, OH) had eight stops in a losing cause for Rio Grande, which dropped to 3-3 overall.

The RedStorm returns to action on Wednesday night, hosting Georgetown College in its Mid-South Conference opener. Kickoff is set for 5 p.m.
