IOWA CITY – The University of Iowa soccer team lost its fourth consecutive game on Friday night, falling 1-0 to Indiana at the Iowa Soccer Complex.
The Hoosiers and Hawkeyes traded possessions for much of the first half. At the 28:25 mark, the Hawkeyes had the game’s first scoring threat when freshman Danielle Oswald got open in the box and fired a shot toward the goal. The ball clanked off the post to keep the Hawkeyes out of the net.
The game went into halftime tied at zero, while both teams attempted six shots.
Early in the second half, the luck wasn’t on the Hawkeyes side for the second time in the match. Sophomore Katelyn Quinn received a pass from fellow sophomore Avery Bang on the right side of the box. Quinn fired the ball towards the goal, but the post kept the Hawkeyes out of the net for a second time. Quinn fired a second shot on the rebound, but it was deflected. Freshman Lindsey Phillips fired a shot off the deflection, but Indiana goalkeeper Shaunna Daugherty recorded one of her two saves on the night to keep the game scoreless.
The Hoosiers scored the game’s only goal in the 53rd minute when freshman Carrie DeFreece assisted sophomore Robin Barker. Barker fired the ball into the bottom left corner of the net to beat Iowa goalkeeper Britta Vogele.
At the 30:03 mark, Hoosier senior Emily Hotz was given a red card and ejected from the game for violent conduct. The Hawkeyes kept the ball on the Indiana side of the field for the remainder of the game, but they could not find the net when they were playing with the advantage.
Iowa out shot the Hoosiers 15-8 in the game. Eight different Hawkeyes attempted at least one shot in the game.
Iowa will return to competition on Sunday when they host No. 21 Purdue. The game at the Iowa Soccer Complex will begin at 1 p.m.
