Springfield, MO – The University of Iowa women’s soccer team battled to a 1-1 draw in double overtime Friday night at Cooper Sports Complex in Springfield, MO. Iowa’s defense withheld a potent Missouri State offense that blasted 21 shots on the evening.
Missouri State tested the Hawkeyes early, registering three shots on goal in the first 13 minutes of the contest, all of which were knocked away by sophomore goalkeeper Lindsey Boldt.
After a scoreless first half, freshman Stephanie Hyink gave Iowa the lead in the 50th minute when she found the back of the net off an assist from sophomore Katie Mulvahill. The goal was Hyink’s third of the season.
Missouri State tied the contest in the 79th minute after Kate Hercules knocked in a goal off a corner from Lauren Heck. Iowa had a couple chances late in the match, including a shot by senior Katelyn Quinn that was saved and a corner with just 21 seconds left, but could not find the netting.
Iowa gained a corner in the first five seconds of the first overtime period, but couldn’t get a shot. Neither team produced a shot in the first overtime period.
Freshman goalkeeper Erin MacIsaac saw her first minutes in goal for the Hawkeyes with less than three minutes left in the second overtime period and came up big for the Hawkeyes, knocking away two balls in the final two minutes to keep the match at a 1-1 draw.
Quinn once again led the Iowa offensive attack, recording four shots. Junior Jamie Maltman blasted three shots, two of which were on goal.
Boldt allowed one goal and had seven saves while MacIssac recorded her first two saves as a Hawkeye.
