COLUMBUS, OH – The University of Iowa soccer team scored a goal with a little more than two minutes remaining to tie the game at one apiece. In overtime, defense was the name of the game as neither team could muster anything offensively as the Hawkeyse and No. 12/24 Ohio State finished the game in a deadlock at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.
In the first half, the Buckeyes got on the board when they converted on a corner kick at the 21:32 mark. Sophomore Colleen Hoban scored on the assist by Heather Miller and Paige Harrison. Hoban scored on a header into the left corner of the net on the rebound from the corner kick to put the Buckeyes up 1-0.
The Buckeyes were the aggressor in the opening frame as they out shot the Hawkeyes, 8-4. Ohio State kept the ball on its side of the field for much of the first half as they attempted five corner kicks to Iowa’s zero.
Ohio State protected its lead in the second half, but the Hawkeyes kept plugging away at the Buckeyes lead and evened the score at one at the 87:51 mark. Sophomore Katelyn Quinn received the ball on an assist from freshmen Danielle Oswald and Brianna Damstetter to score her fifth goal of the season to knot the game up and send it into to overtime.
In the overtime period both team were on the defensive as only one shot was attempted throughout the first ten minutes. In the second overtime, the Hawkeyes were the aggressors as they attempted three shots to the Buckeyes one. Iowa couldn’t manage to get the ball past Ohio State goalkeeper Emily Hayman, so the game ended in a 1-1 tie.
The Hawkeyes (3-3-1) will return to competition on Sunday when they travel to University Park, PA, to take on No. 9/11 Penn State at noon on Jeffrey Field. This will mark the third consecutive game in which Iowa has played a ranked opponent.
