The Flying Dutchmen beat host Olivet College 20-5 on Tuesday for their 10th consecutive victory — the longest streak in their varsity history.
Hope improved to 10-1 overall — equaling last season's school-record of 10 wins.
The Flying Dutchmen also raised their Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association record to 3-0. They remained a half-game ahead of second-place Albion (4-6, 2-0 MIAA).
At Olivet, Hope never trailed after scoring the first six goals of the match and seizing a 6-1 lead by the time the first period ended.
Attacker Rocco Mularoni — ranked in the Top 20 nationally for goals per game — recorded three of his match-high six duals during the opening 15 minutes.
The sophomore from Hartland, Michigan (Detroit Catholic Central HS) now has an MIAA-leading 43 goals on the season. It's the fifth-most in team history.
The Flying Dutchmen yielded no more than five goals in a match for the sixth time this season.
Hope entered the match ranked ninth in the nation in scoring defense at 6.10 goals allowed per match.
