STOCKTON — Those slowed by holiday weekend traffic on the way to Knoles Field on Sunday afternoon missed the action.

Most of it, anyway.

The visiting Hawaii women’s soccer team scored three times in the first 17 minutes of play, and went on to snap Pacific’s modest two-game winning streak with a 5-0 shutout.

For what it’s worth, the Tigers were fairly comparable in nearly every statistic besides the scoreboard. Hawaii got 16 shots off to Pacific’s 13, and the Tigers made four saves to Hawaii’s five.

Pacific even had a 5-2 edge in corner kicks, and committed nine fouls to Hawaii’s 13.

The back of the net is where things matter most, though. Hawaii found it in the seventh minute of play, then went nearly back-to-back with goals at 15:06 and 17:21.

“It’s hard in the game of soccer once that score gets away from you,” said Pacific head coach Kerri Scroope. “I took this moment as a teaching opportunity, and started to play the younger kids.”

Hawaii led 4-0 at halftime, and added a fifth score in the 67th minute for good measure. The Tigers had no answer; after two weeks on the road and coming off a 3-1 win over Sacramento State win in Friday’s home opener, the team just didn’t come out to play Sunday, Scroope said.

“We knew this was coming,” Scroope said. “We’re happy for it to come now, and not during conference. We have to make adjustments and move forward.”

Of Pacific’s (2-4) four losses on the young season, three have been shutouts. It might be a more concerning point if the Tigers were, say, more than six matches into a season that stretches into November.

Right now, Scroope didn’t sound worried about the team’s offensive abilities. It’s a young roster, she said, and players are getting their looks. Junior Sigrid Aas had four shots and freshman Beth Burgess had two, as did senior Bianca Lopez.

“If we didn’t have any shots on the board, I’d be worried. But it’s too early in the season,” Scroope said. “We’re depending on too many young kids, freshmen and sophomores, that have not played.

“It’s coming. And when it does, watch out.”
