The No. 1 in 2A Pella Lady Dutch soccer team had little trouble closing out their regular season on senior night against Grinnell in a 7-0 victory.

Pella started the game with all of their seniors on the field and kept many in for extra playing time, including Kaitlyn Fairchild, who knocked in her first goal of the season just before the halftime break. Grace Held had a hat trick, and Maddie Canfield, Bellara Huang, and Ciara Buchheit also scored. They outshot Grinnell on the goal 26-2.

Pella finishes the Little Hawkeye Conference season undefeated, and get a first round bye in the regional playoffs, where they wait to host the winner of Washington/Mt. Pleasant on Tuesday, May 30th.
