ROSEMOUNT — Mongi Obang scored a season-high three goals and Rochester Community and Technical College got back in the win column with a 6-1 victory over Dakota County Technical College on Wednesday in junior college women's soccer.

Obang, who hails from Rochester, scored her hat trick as she recorded seven shots in the game. She entered the game with one goal this season.

The Yellowjackets, ranked No. 10 in the nation among Division III NJCAA teams, are now 7-2 overall and 2-1 in league play after snapping their one-game skid.

"The RCTC women came ready to win today," Yellowjackets coach Bryan Weiss said. "We needed to prove to ourselves that we have earned our NJCAA ranking. We scored two goals in the first six minutes and controlled most of the game from there."

Haley Doyea scored two goals and Eliana Bentley of Austin had a goal and an assist for RCTC. Elgin's Mackenzie Polson had two assists while Eyota's Allison Thompson, Grace Maschino and Kes Whalen each had one assist.


Jordan Weber of Oronoco had four saves and did not allow a goal. She split time in the net with Red Wing's Ashlyn Nysteun, who had two saves and allowed one goal.

RCTC will host Alexandria Technical & Community College at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
