IOWA CITY – The Iowa soccer team closed out its season in grand fashion tonight at the Iowa Soccer Complex in a 4-0 shutout over Northern Iowa. Sophomore forward Katelyn Quinn recorded the first hat trick of her career and tied a school record with seven points to lead the Hawkeyes.
Quinn opened up the matches scoring at the 12:49 mark when she scored on a crosser from freshman Lindsey Phillips. Quinn fired the shot into the left corner of the goal to beat Northern Iowa goalkeeper Ann-Marie Witko.
The Highland’s Park, CO, native notched her second goal of the game in the 32nd minute. Junior Katie Poole sent the ball in to Quinn who netted it into the left corner making the score 2-0.
The Hawkeyes dominated the first half of the contest as they held a 13-4 advantage in shots.
Iowa started the second half where they left off the first. Quinn recorded the hat trick when she received a pass from sophomore Whitney Strain and fired the ball into the right corner of the net. The hat trick is the sixth in school history and the first by a Hawkeye since Oct. 20, 2000, when Sarah Lynch had one against Illinois.
The Hawkeyes added the final goal of the contest at the 73:27 mark when Quinn assisted Phillips. Phillips fired the ball into the left corner of the net for her third point of the game.
Junior Britta Vogele and sophomore Brooke Peterson teamed up for Iowa’s second shutout of the season. Vogele stopped five shots, while Peterson had two.
In the game, Quinn attempted 10 shots, which is the second most in a match in school history and she moved into a tie for second in game-winning goals as she now has seven in her career. Quinn finishes the 2003 season with 11 goals for the second straight year. She now has 22 goals in her career, which moves her into third place all-time.
The Hawkeyes had a season high 22 shots in the game, while the Panthers recorded eight shots. Iowa matched a season high with the four goals. Iowa defeated Drake 4-0 on Sept. 5 earlier this season.
Iowa concludes the 2003 season with a 4-12-2 overall record.
