WILLMAR -- Ali Sing netted a hat trick Tuesday to help Willmar collect its first win of the season as the Cardinals upended Marshall 3-1 in a non-conference game.
Chelsey Wierschem assisted on all three goals to give the senior forward five points on the year.
"Ali Sing played well and we peppered their goalie," said Willmar coach Rick Dahle. "The girls controlled the play and kept working hard."
