Ames, Iowa Four Kansas University players each scored a goal, and sophomore Maddie Dobyns recorded a shutout in goal as the Jayhawks routed Iowa State, 4-0, in Big 12 soccer Sunday at the Cyclone Sports Complex.

“I thought we played really well today,” KU coach Mark Francis said. “The thing I was more pleased about though was that, we not only played well, but we converted our chances, which we haven’t necessarily been doing recently. The team has been working really hard. We had a lot of people score today which is something that is really encouraging. Today was a good result for us. We really needed it.”
