IOWA CITY – The University of Iowa women’s soccer team was defeated by No. 28 Michigan State Friday night, 4-1. The first three goals of the match were scored in the opening 17 minutes of play.
Both offenses were efficient in the first half as both Iowa and Michigan State scored on their first shots of the game. Michigan State took the early lead in the second minute when Dana Voorheis sent in a cross that caught Iowa goalkeeper Erin MacIsaac off her line and found the back of the net.
Iowa responded in the seventh minute when Kelsey Shaw headed in a pinpoint corner off the foot of Jamie Maltman to tie the match at 1-1. Michigan State regained the lead in the 17th minute when Emma Harris headed in a cross from Voorheis and the score remained 2-1 through halftime.
The Spartans came out firing in the second half, scoring just five minutes in. Harris scored her second goal of the match off a free kick from Maureen Pawlak to give the Spartans a 3-1 advantage.
Michigan State added its fourth goal in the 73rd minute when Shannon Collar headed in a free kick from Nina Mastrachi. The free kick was given near the end line on the right side, just outside the 18-yard box.
Iowa nearly netted a goal in the 78th minute when freshman Manon Engelhardt played a nice through-ball to fellow freshman Stephanie Hyink, who controlled the ball in traffic and blasted a shot the caromed off the crossbar.
Shaw led the Hawkeye offense, netting one goal on four shots. Hyink recorded three shots while MacIsaac had three saves.
Iowa hosts Michigan Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Iowa Soccer Complex. The match will serve as Senior Day for Katelyn Quinn, Whitney Strain and Natalie Lencioni.
