Dodger girls face Ames

AMES – The Fort Dodge girls soccer team suffered a 5-0 setback to Ames here Friday night.

The ninth-ranked (Class 3A) Little Cyclones (7-2 overall) earned their third straight shutout and sixth of the season.

“It was a brutal match,” FDSH head coach Lindsay Boeckman said. “Very physical. We did some good things, but it wasn’t the outcome we wanted.

“We just need to re-focus and get back after it (today).”

The Dodgers (4-6) play in the Urbandale Invitational against both the host J-Hawks and No. 1 Ankeny.
