Jesse Jacobusse scores one of her 5 goals on the night for Chelsea

The rain finally subsided Thursday but left the field very wet and slippery for the Chelsea soccer team as they played host to Lincoln. The Railsplitters were coming into the game off a big shutout over Tecumseh. After a Chelsea JV 8-0 mercy victory over the young Lincoln team, it was time for the varsity action to begin.

Both teams started a bit slow as they adjusted to the field conditions. But it was Lincoln striking first at the 26-minute mark as Senior Alexis Blackburn was able to get the ball over the head of Chelsea netminder Natalia McElrath on Lincoln’s first shot of the game. Chelsea tightened up on defense creating several turnovers which led to many chances on goal. At about the 14-minute mark the defense caused a big turnover which led to Junior Jesse Jacobusse getting a great shot to get behind Lincoln Senior goalie Sabrina “Brina” Dennis.  11 minutes later it was Jacobusse again getting the ball into the Lincoln net on Chelsea’s 8th shot of the half for a 2 to 1 lead which the Bulldogs took into the break.

Coming out in the second half the Bulldog defense clamped down hard not allowing Lincoln any opportunities at all. It was Jacobusse again with the goal at the 26:58 mark giving her the hat trick for the night. Shortly thereafter it was all Jacobusse with her 4th & 5th goals of the night raising the score where it would finish 5-1. Jacobusse, a senior multi-sport player was on fire for the whole game and just couldn’t be stopped! Sophomore Alex Quintana & Freshman Natalie Gofton each had one assist on the night. The Bulldog defense was outstanding forcing turnovers, creating opportunities for Jacobusse to score her goals, and keeping the Railsplitters without a shot in the second half. Chelsea finished the night with 16 shots on net.

The Bulldogs next game is Tuesday at home versus Ypsilanti with varsity taking the field at 5:30.
