CHICKASHA – The Drovers had no trouble against Southwestern Christian on Saturday afternoon, dominating the Eagles 6-0 thanks in part to a Jade Ovendale first-half hat trick.
It was the Drovers (4-9, 3-4) second conference shutout of the week, having toppled Mid-America Christian 3-0 on Tuesday.
The game was delayed 45 minutes due to rain and lightning in the Chickasha area, but within five minutes of kick off, Ovendale got the Drovers on the board off an assist by Megan Kettlewell.
Almost exactly 20 minutes later, Ovendale scored again, this time off an assist by Rhiannon Brewster. Brewster had three assists in Saturday’s game.
Before halftime ended, Brewster found senior Linda Addo for a goal, and Ovendale secured her hat trick with a third goal of the day. Defender Ryah Vyse had the assist on the final goal of the half.
Heading into overtime leading 4-0, the Drovers were not done yet. Senior Lauren Carter slid one into the top of the goal off an assist by Addo in the middle of the second half.
Finally, Addo scored her second goal of the game — and ninth of the season — off Brewster’s third assist of the afternoon.
For the game, USAO had 29 shots to SCU’s seven.
Brooke Worcester and Addie Lee split time in goal. Worcester had one save while Lee had three.
With the game, Ovendale has 15 goals in 13 games this season. Additionally, Ovendale owns all four of the Drovers’ game-winning goals.
USAO will play at Southwestern Assemblies of God on Tuesday afternoon before returning home for their final home game of the regular season, Senior Day, which is scheduled for 1 p.m. Nov. 1.
