IOWA CITY, IOWA–The University of Iowa women’s soccer team dominated play in Cedar Falls Sunday afternoon, taking down Northern Iowa and completing a perfect weekend. The Hawkeyes posted the 6-0 victory on the visitors field, marking the fourth straight shutout win for Iowa this season.

Sophomore Dana Dalrymple ignited the Iowa attack with a shot past Northern Iowa goalkeeper Lauren Potzman in the 24th minute. Jade Grimm assited Dalrymple with a pass up field.

Freshman Leah DeMoss capitalized on an opportune pass from Stefani Campbell in the 30th minute. Campbell drove upfield from the left side and sent it across to DeMoss who buried it in the net. The goal marks the freshman’s first career goal at Iowa. DeMoss also recorded two assists last weekend.

The score was 2-0 at half time when Northern Iowa traded goalkeepers. Erin Zaideman took over in goal for the Panthers in the second half. Zaideman did not have time to get comfortable before junior Alyssa Cosnek sent one ricocheting off the right post into the net. Gabby Ainsworth is credited with the assist.

Just into the 74th minutes, Iowa earned a corner kick opportunity. Campbell did the honors for Iowa, sending the perfect ball just within reach of Sarah Langlas. Langlas leapt up and sent a header past Zaideman’s hands to make the score 4-0.

Head Coach Ron Rainey made the call to switch Iowa’s goalkeeper part way through the second period. Rainey sent senior captain Kali Feiereisel in for junior starter Emily Moran. Moran recorded no saves in 57 minutes.

Gabrielle Tinner found herself in a position to improve the team’s score shortly after Langlas’ goal. Tinner placed the ball just outside of the goal for Ashley Catrell. The freshman took aim and hit the target, marking the second goal by a true freshman this game.

DeMoss’s attacking ability was not silenced after her goal in the 30th minute. She possessed the ball on the left side of the 18-yard box late in the game. DeMoss then passed it off to Campbell who caught the Panther goalkeeper watching as she sent the ball into the far left side of the net.

“We saw some nice individual efforts on the goals today,” Rainey said. “It is really great to see so many people scoring goals. We definitely need to work on our speed of play this week, though, but we are really excited about 2 road wins this weekend.”

Feiereisel recorded three assists to preserve the Iowa shutout.

The Hawkeyes continue their three-week road schedule next weekend in Charleston, SC. The team faces College of Charleston Friday night and will take on Davidson Sunday afternoon.
