WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The University of Iowa field hockey team fell to the North Carolina Tarheels, 5-0, in game two of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge on the campus of Wake Forest University. The Hawkeyes (0-2) dramatically upped their shot output from Saturday’s game, putting 18 shots on goal after mustering just six the day before against Wake Forest. Iowa actually recorded more penalty corners than North Carolina (11 to 8), after not earning one against the Demon Deacons. Anne Marie Janus gave North Carolina a 1-0 lead 10:19 into the game by burying a pass from Heather Kendell. Karen Mann then scored a pair of penalty corner goals just before the half ended to give the Tarheels a commanding 3-0 lead. In the second half, the shots were even at 12 apiece, but Iowa was still unable to crack the goal. Kelsye Keeran scored a pair of second half goals to put the game out of reach. Barb Weinberg made nine saves in goal for Iowa, while Margot McMahon took a team-high seven shots for the Hawkeyes. Iowa and North Carolina will meet again next Saturday, September 4, when both teams return to action in the first round of the Temple Tournament in Philadelphia, PA.
