IOWA CITY – The University of Iowa women’s soccer team used an aggressive offensive attack along with solid defensive play to beat Creighton, 3-1. Margit Vogele, Susan Yagla and Kelsie Full all picked up their first career goals against the Bluejays.
The Hawkeyes came out firing to begin the game and scored in the 4th minute when Margit Vogele headed in a corner kick from Jamie Maltman to put Iowa up 1-0. Iowa scored again in the 11th minute when Susan Yagla blasted a deep shot that glanced off Bluejay goalkeeper Valerie Zimmerer and the Hawkeyes led, 2-0.
Creighton responded when Emily Munn scored off a penalty kick in the 25th minute and the score was 2-1 at halftime.
The second half was a defensive battle and neither team saw a good scoring opportunity until late in the game. Iowa put constant pressure on the Creighton defense late in the half and finally produced a goal when Danielle Oswald volleyed a ball over a Creighton defender to Kelsie Full, who chipped it over the goalkeeper to insure the win.
Britta Vogele stopped three shots and recorded her first win of the season. The Hawkeyes outshot Creighton 16-7 and had a season high nine corner kicks on the day.
