Hawkeyes Blast Drake, 4-0

Sept. 5, 2003


Omaha, NE – The University of Iowa soccer team got the offensive support they needed to go along with goalkeeper Britta Vogele in a 4-0 win at the Creighton Bluejay Classic. The Hawkeyes had five shots on goal in the contest and scored on four occasions.

In the first half of the game the Hawkeyes controlled the ball in their side of the field for much of the 45 minutes. Drake managed only three first half shots, however, both teams headed into intermission deadlocked at zero.

About ten minutes into the second half the Hawkeye offensive emerged. Senior Courtney Wilkerson dribbled the ball down into the box and passed the ball to freshman Karen Enockson. Enockson faked a cross pass and beat Drake goalkeeper Kate Stack for her first career goal and the first Hawkeye goal of the 2003 season.

After the Hawkeyes scored, Drake countered by putting four forwards into the box to try and even the match. The move seemed to stifle the Hawkeyes as Drake raked up 19 second half shots. However, Vogele stopped nine shots to keep the team in the lead.

At the 81:59 mark, freshman Danielle Oswald sent a cross pass into the box for sophomore Katelyn Quinn. Quinn scored on a header from eight yards out to give the Hawkeyes a 2-0 lead.

Five minutes later, Oswald picked up the first goal of her Hawkeye career as she beat Stack for an unassisted goal. Quinn added her second goal of the game with a little under three minutes to go in the game on an assist by Enockson.

The Hawkeyes will return to competition on Sunday when they face Creighton in the final game of the classic. The contest is set to begin at 2:30 p.m. at the Creighton Soccer Complex.

Box Score — 9/5/03
