IOWA CITY – The University of Iowa women’s soccer team recorded a 2-1 victory over Eastern Michigan Sunday in rainy conditions at the Iowa Soccer Complex. Sophomore Stephanie Hyink netted an impressive game-winning goal to give the Hawkeyes their second win of the season.
Iowa took a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute when Kelsie Full found the back of the net inside the 18-yard box. Hyink took the ball down the right wing and sent in a cross to junior Melisa Kaetterhenry, who settled the ball in front of Full.
Eastern Michigan responded with an equalizer off a corner in the 41st minute. Katie Zundel knocked in a header from a Cyndi Mullins corner to level the score at 1-1 heading into halftime.
The Hawkeyes kept steady offensive pressure on Eastern Michigan, recording seven shots in the first 20 minutes of the second half. In the 69th minute, Hyink took an Eastern Michigan clearance down the right wing and attempted to play the ball past a defender. The ball slid to the goal-line, nearly rolling out of bounds before Hyink could reclaim possession. Eastern Michigan’s goalkeeper came off her line and a diving Hyink calmly placed the ball to the opposite corner of the goal for the eventual game-winner.
Leading the Hawkeye offensive charge was Full who recorded four shots on target. Hyink recorded two shots on net.
Junior Lindsey Boldt pushed away two shots in 90 minutes of play in net.
The Hawkeyes travel to Ames Tuesday to face Iowa State in the second event of the 2006 Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series. Tuesday’s match will begin at 7 p.m.
