Pella’s girls soccer team has clinched the Little Hawkeye Conference regular season championship with last night’s 3-1 win at Dallas Center-Grimes.

After a scoreless first half, the Fillies struck first early in the second. But the Lady Dutch responded with three straight goals and claimed victory when the match was called due to lightning in the 74th minute.

Grace Held scored twice for the Lady Dutch, with another tally added by Katie Vander Molen. The Lady Dutch outshot the Fillies 23-9 and had 14 shots on goal compared to DCG’s three.

Pella is 13-1 on the season and 6-0 in the LHC, and with their win over Norwalk, they claim the possible head-to-head tiebreaker if Norwalk won out and Pella were to lose to Grinnell. They’ll host Winterset tomorrow before wrapping up conference play next Tuesday with a home match against the Tigers.
