The Dowagiac varsity soccer team hasn't seen much of its home field this season, but Monday afternoon the Chieftains got a chance to host Edwardsburg in a non-conference match.
The Chieftains scored a pair of first half goals en route to a 3-1 victory.
Jordan Markham got the Chieftains on the scoreboard first in the fourth minute before Hillary Bisnett, who started her first match since returning from injury, scored on a corner kick in the 30th minute.
Edwardsburg cut the lead to 2-1 15 minutes into the second half when Shelley Roberts tallied.
Dowagiac wasted little time rebuilding its two-goal advantage as Jill Billingham completed the scoring with a goal in the 60th minute.
Dowagiac outshot Edwardsburg 28-19.
Chieftain goalkeeper Jackie Sayre stopped 11 shots, while Edwardsburg keeper Jennie Haines stopped 18 shots.
