After kicking off the season with a narrow 1-0 victory Friday night, Iowa State (2-0, 0-0 Big 12) found a little more offensive firepower in its second game of the season Sunday afternoon against South Dakota.

The Cyclones found the back of the net three times, while the Coyotes failed to score a single goal in the contest. 

Iowa State’s defense has proven to be tough to crack so far this season, as they have recorded shutouts in both of their first two games. 

The Cyclones kicked off the scoring frenzy in the 33rd minute when Lauren Roeling buried a shot off of a Koree Willer assist. The Cyclones dominated possession of the ball in the first half, as evidenced by their seven shots compared to South Dakota’s one shot. 

Lindsay Frank tacked on a goal early in the second half in the 51st minute to push the ISU lead to two. Haley Albert scored a final insurance goal for the Cyclones in the 59th minute off of an assist from Maribell Morales.

After two wins in South Dakota, Iowa State will return to Ames for the week before heading out to California for games against Long Beach State and Pepperdine next weekend.
