ROCK ISLAND, Ill. – Eight different players scored for the Augustana Vikings as Simpson women’s soccer suffered a 9-0-blowout loss on Sunday afternoon.

It was women’s soccer’s worse loss since losing 9-0 against St. Ambrose in 1998.

Augustana (7-1) scored early and often, going up 1-0 in the sixth minute on a Grace Iaqunita score. The Vikings added four more in the first half, scoring on five of their 12 shots in the first frame. 

Kelly Farell scored twice, notching her ninth and tenth goals of the season in the runaway victory.

The Storm (2-5) were only able to muster up four shots all day, three of which were on goal.

Goalkeeper Zoe Seiler was the losing keeper for Simpson, making five saves amidst the Viking barrage.

Simpson will be back in action when it kicks off Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play on Saturday, Sept. 26 at Loras. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m.
