Oct. 12, 2003


MINNEAPOLIS, MN – The Iowa soccer team tied Minnesota 2-2 at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Hawkeyes held a 2-1 lead with ten minutes to play, but a late goal by the Gophers sent the game into overtime.

Minnesota opened up the scoring in the 17th minute of the contest when Haley Lentsch assisted Rebecca Dellaria for the goal. Dellaria shot from the left side of the box and the ball deflected off of Iowa goalkeeper Britta Vogele for the score.

In the second half, Iowa evened up the score at the 48:58 mark. Sophomore Katelyn Quinn scored her team-leading seventh goal of the season on a free kick from ten yards out to put the Hawkeyes on the board. Freshman Danielle Oswald was credited with the assist.

About twelve minutes later, freshman Lindsey Phillips and Oswald were on a two-on-one break. Phillips took the pass and fired the ball from the right side into the net from 15 yards out to beat Minnesota goalkeeper Marni Prall to put Iowa up 2-1.

The Hawkeyes held the lead for the next twenty minutes before the Gophers knotted the game up in the 81st minute. Laura Hoppe scored an unassisted goal on a shot from 15 yards out on the right side of the box.

Minnesota out shot the Hawkeyes 19-16 in the game. Iowa attempted eight corner kicks, while the Golden Gophers had two. Vogele ended the match with nine saves.

Next weekend, Iowa will travel to Michigan and Michigan State in the last weekend of Big Ten play.
