Sept. 21, 2003


STATE COLLEGE, PA – The University of Iowa soccer team couldn’t muster anything offensively as Penn State dominated the Hawkeyes, 4-0, on Sunday afternoon at Jeffrey Field. The Nittany Lions held a 31-2 advantage in shot attempts on the day with twenty of the shots being on goal.

At the 19:11 mark, Joanna Lohman scored the game’s first goal when she received a pass from Tiffany Weimer. Weimer sent a crosser about 25-yards out on the right side of the field to Lohman, who then sent a rocket high into the net to beat the outstretched arms of Hawkeye goalkeeper Britta Vogele.

Heidi Drummond scored Penn State’s second goal at the 57:31 mark of the second half when she converted on a header from Brooke Mertz. Lohman added an unassisted goal for her second goal of the game at the 76:16 to give the Nittany Lions a 3-0 lead. Fifteen seconds later, Tiffany Weimer rounded out the scoring when she too scored an unassisted goal.

In the loss, Vogele recorded 15 saves. This is the third game of the season in which Vogele has stopped double digit saves in a match. The 15 saves also ties a school record.

The Hawkeyes will return home to the Iowa Soccer Complex on Friday when they host Illinois at 7 p.m.
