Indy Eleven Secure USL W League Valley Division Title with 16-0 Win

June 30, 2023 - United Soccer League Championship (USL) - Indy Eleven News Release

WESTFIELD, Ind. - Indy Eleven recorded a pair of hat tricks on the way to a 16-0 win over St. Charles FC in the regular season finale. With the win, the Eleven finished the season 8-1-1 and secured the USL W League's Valley Division title. The division championship is the second for the Girls in Blue in two seasons of action.

The 16 goals scored are a club record for Indy, surpassing an 8-0 outing over St. Charles to open the 2023 season, and the total and margin of victory are the most in the league's history. In 22 matches over two seasons, the program has scored five-plus goals on three occasions, four-plus goals four times and three-plus goals 12 times. Overall, Indy had a plus-37 goal differential over the regular season, outscoring its opponents 40-3.

As part of the 16 tallies, Maddy Williams recorded her second-career hat trick and added a fourth tally to lead the Eleven. Before Friday's match, she owned the club's only other three-goal game doing so in a 3-0 win over Flint City AFC on June 10, 2022.

Sam Dewey picked up the second hat trick for Indy, scoring all three of her goals in the first 45 minutes of action. Both Williams and Dewey now have a team-leading seven goals on the season.

Three more players scored double-digit goals with Addie Chester, Katie Soderstrom and Rafferty Kugler picking up two apiece, while Grace Bahr and Susie Soderstrom each added one.

Katie Soderstrom registered 10 of Indy's 47 shots, while 13 total players had shots. Nona Reason and Emily Edwards shared the clean sheet in goal with Edwards making the lone save.

Indy will head to the Central Conference Playoffs Thursday as part of a four-team pod hosted by Flint City AFC. Opponent and game time information for the Central Conference Semifinals are to be determined.
