IOWA CITY – The Setting
The University of Iowa women’s soccer team opens Big Ten play this weekend, traveling to Northwestern and Wisconsin. The Hawkeyes face Northwestern Friday at 4 p.m. in Evanston and Wisconsin Sunday at 1 p.m. in Madison.

Overtime Goal Gives Iowa Win Over Iowa State
The Hawkeyes evened the 2006-07 Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series with a 1-0 overtime win against Iowa State last Tuesday. Iowa City native Kelsie Full netted her first career game-winning goal during extra time to secure the victory.

In the 95th minute, Full took a through-ball from sophomore Stephanie Hyink and blasted a shot across the goal in the the left upper-90.

Junior Melisa Kaetterhenry nearly scored the match winner in the 94th minute, but a great save by Iowa State goalkeeper Ann Gleason kept the match alive.

Iowa’s defense produced its second shutout of the season while junior goalkeeper Lindsey Boldt recorded her first shutout in goal as a Hawkeye.

Iowa Blanks Bears
Iowa recorded a 3-0 shutout last Friday against Northern Colorado at the Gopher Invitational. Junior goalkeeper Lindsey Boldt tallied her second-straight shutout in goal.

Junior Ashley Schlueter got the Hawkeyes on the board in the 44th minute when she caught Nothern Colorado goalkeeper Chrissy Marvin off her line and chipped in a shot from 35 yards out.

Sophomore Kelly Warner scored Iowa’s second goal in the 52nd minute off assists from Stephanie Hyink and Kathleen Smokowski. Sophomore Manon Engelhardt put the match away in the 88th minute with a goal off a loose ball in front of the net.

Late Goals For Big Green
Dartmouth handed Iowa a 5-0 defeat Sunday at the Gopher Invitational. The Big Green netted four second half goals in the final 15 minutes of play.

Iowa held the potent Dartmouth offense to just one goal on 11 shots in the first half, but goals in the 76th, 80th, 85th and 86th minute led to the Big Green win.
