OKLAHOMA CITY – In the 12 seasons of Mid-America Christian University women's soccer, never has there been an offensive day like the Lady Evangels experienced on Tuesday.

MACU (1-0) set team single game records for goals (14), assists (10), and points (38) as the Lady Evangels dominated from start to finish against a very scrappy Manhattan Christian College (0-2) side.

MACU got things started in the fifth minute, when Allyson Pamplin headed home a beautiful service off a corner kick from Kelsey Janko to put the Lady Evangels on the board. Just under two minutes later, Pamplin drew a foul in the box for the Lady Evangels, and Jess Austin stepped up and buried the Penalty Kick to double the MACU lead to 2-0. Casey Riley intercepted a goal kick in the 15th minute, and she fired home a shot inside the left post for MACU's third goal, and one minute later, Janko found Alissa Tapp on a thru ball for the goal to make it 4-0. Pamplin scored her second goal of the game in the 18th minute, Alex White scored in the 33rd minute, and Pyper Steinweiss got on the board to cap the first half scoring, and at intermission, MACU held a commanding 7-0 lead.

Pamplin completed her hat trick in the 62nd minute, converting a 1-on-1 opportunity after a beautiful double-assist play from Riley and Brittney Stephens, pushing the MACU lead to 8-0. Keanni Barnes sprung Riley for her second goal of the match less than a minute later, and Stephens scored two unassisted tallies in a five minute span to push the MACU advantage to 11-0. Barnes blasted a shot off the bottom of the crossbar and into the net in the 87th minute, And Angelica Ceballos cracked a shot just inside the near post from the left wing with under two minutes to play. Ceballos then found Tapp to cap the scoring in the final minute, as MACU took the 14-0 win.

Pamplin (3 G) and Tapp (2 G, 2 A) each had six points in the match, Riley and Stephens each had two goals and an assist for five points, and Barnes picked up a goal and two assists for four points. Madison Donihoo (1-0) started the game in goal and earned the win by playing the first half, and Jennifer Starwalt played the second half, making a save in her first action as a member of the MACU program.

MACU will hit the road on Saturday, heading to Winfield, Kansas to take on the Southwestern College Moundbuilders (1-0). The match is slated to kick off at 11 a.m.
