Dodgers finish regular season with win

The Fort Dodge girls soccer team ended the regular with a 4-1 victory over Mason City on Friday inside Dodger Stadium.

Freshman Iris Piemann scored the first goal for the Dodgers (5-9 overall) with 12 seconds remaining in the first half on an assist from Paige Savery.

Savery tacked on two goals in the second half and Erin Ruden added the final goal. Francis Lee had an assist on one of Savery’s goal.

“This was the most positive game we’ve played, said Fort Dodge head coach Nathan Ramthun. “We were playing well together and kept pushing each other.

“It’s nice to end the regular season with a win, heading into the postseason.”

The Dodgers outshot the Mohawks 18-4 and Mason City’s lone goal came late in the second half.

“We moved the ball around really well,” Ramthun said. “Our defense played tremendous and our forwards made good runs, opening up space for midfielders to work.”

The Dodgers travel to West Des Moines on Wednesday to face Dowling at 5 p.m. in their postseason opener.
