Through three matches, the defense has led the way for the Madison College women’s soccer team. So far, the team has allowed only one goal this season. 

But against Kishwaukee College on Aug. 22, the offense stepped up as well. 

Madison College scored a season-high seven goals in a 7-0 victory over Kishwaukee to improve its record to 2-0-1. 

Three players scored two goals each for the WolfPack. Freshman Madison Johnson led the way with two goals and three assists in the match. Her first goal came five minutes into the game, off a pass from sophomore Lexi Kulow.  

Fellow first-year players Kiersten McHugh and Mahala Frey both added two goals as well, while Kulow had a goal and two assists. 

Goalkeepers Morgan Thompson and Olivia Lange combined for the team’s second shut-out win of the season. Each played a half and had one save.
