Hope College women’s soccer claims MIAA title

HOLLAND – Erin Powers and her Hope College teammates grabbed the crystal MIAA soccer trophy and ran to midfield and posed for photos with it after the game.

“It’s an amazing feeling,” the Hope junior said. “We’ve been working for this all season and you just hope you can be standing here in the tournament final holding the trophy. It’s a lot of fun.”

The Hope College women’s soccer team beat Trine University 3-1 on Saturday afternoon to win the MIAA Tournament championship for the first time since 2018.

Shockingly, Hope scored all three goals on corner kicks. Two by defender Anneliese Lockner and one by Cassidy Broekhuizen.

“Thank goodness for her head today,” Hope coach Leigh Sears said of Lockner scoring on two headers. “It’s a big deal. That’s a big game for a defender.”
