ALLENDALE, Mich. - Ashley Botts scored twice to lead No. 19 Grand Valley State to a 4-0 shutout over the Michigan Tech soccer team Friday (Sept. 16). The Lakers (2-0-2, 2-0-0), who are the defending national champions, out shot the Huskies (2-2-1, 0-2-1) 27-8 in the match.

Juane Odendaal would extend the Laker lead to 2-0 with her first goal of the season less than five minutes later.
