IOWA CITY – The University of Iowa women’s soccer team was defeated, 4-1 by Michigan on Senior Day. The Hawkeyes created opportunities in the first half, but two second half goals by the Wolverines proved to be the difference.
Michigan took the lead in the 13th minute when Melissa Dobbyn took a cross and beat Iowa goalkeeper Erin MacIsaac for the first goal of the match.
Iowa nearly tied the match when senior Katelyn Quinn received a nice cross from senior Natalie Lencioni and flicked a shot on target. Michigan goalkeeper Megan Tuura made a diving stop to force the ball out of the box.
The Hawkeyes almost tied the match again in the 21st minute. Freshman Stephanie Hyink flicked a header inside the box to Quinn, who blasted a shot that was partially saved by Turra. The ball then hit the post and nearly crossed the goal line, but the Michigan defense cleared the ball before it could roll into the back of the net.
The Wolverines were awarded a penalty kick in the 24th minute and Judy Coffman fired a shot in the back of the net and the game remained 2-0 through halftime.
