The University of Iowa soccer team faced nationally ranked Indiana Sunday. The Hawkeyes battled with the No. 24 Hoosiers, but late game mistakes led to opposing team goals. Indiana outlasted Iowa , 2-0.
“It was really a battle out there today. Indiana capitalized on our mistakes late in the game which is what ultimately led to the goals,” Head Coach Ron Rainey said. “We played really hard at times out there, but we need to take advantage of the opportunities we make in the attacking third. It was a tough result, but I hope our team will keep the effort level up for senior night Friday (Oct. 30) in Iowa City.”
Iowa struggled to keep possession in the first half of the game. Alex Seydel took sole shot for Iowa in the first half. Seydel sent one in at the 10 minute mark that flew high of the goal.
Emily Moran was in goal for Iowa and defended three shots on goal.

In the 83rd minute, Jocelyn Moses rebounded one inside the box for the score.
Seydel lined up for a penalty kick in the 87th minute, but failed to convert following a controversial call.
Indiana managed to get a last minute score off of a breakaway run at the 89:50 mark.
