Humboldt State improved its record to 4-3-1 with a dominant victory in Sunday’s 4-0 win over Benedictine at Mesa.
“I think that Benedictine was well-organized and came out high energy, and our girls did a really good job of absorbing that energy by possessing the ball,” said Head Coach Paul Karver.
Erin Siegal, Jacquelyn Dompier, Rose Harman and Lindsay Stoner all scored for the Jacks.
The Jacks will return to CCAA action against Chico State at home on Friday at 12:30 p.m. and follow that with a Sunday, 11:30 a.m. contest versus Stanislaus State also at College Creek Field.
