CHARLESTON, S.C.– The University of Iowa women’s soccer team recorded its sixth consecutive win Sunday afternoon with a 3-1 win over Davidson at the College of Charleston tournament. The Hawkeyes rolled over the Wildcats to improve to 6-1-0 on the season.

Sophomore attacking force, Dana Dalrymple, was the first to score for the Black and Gold. Dalrymple controlled the ball on the left side of the box and sent it over Davidson goalkeeper, Jessie Baxa, 2:55 into the game. The Hawkeyes did not give Baxa a break in goal with quick shots from juniors Alyssa Cosnek and Morgan Showalter.

In goal for Iowa was junior Emily Moran. The Kent, OH native made a key save in the first period to shut down the opponents’ attacking game.

Iowa’s speedy offense came out of the half time break firing away. Showalter took aim at the net but was wide right with her shot. Sophomore Jade Grimm executed an opportunity at the goal line after rebounding a corner kick by Showalter in the 57th minute of play.

Davidson’s offense kicked in, pushing the ball up the field only to be stopped by Moran at the other end.

Dalrymple countered the Wildcat attack, taking the ball up the field toward the goal line. Dalrymple passed off to freshman Leah DeMoss who tapped in from the six-yard box.

“I thought our game went well today,” Head Coach Ron Rainey. “It was very difficult conditions today with heat out there. I felt like we had a couple nice combinations up top that opened up their defense and allowed for a few nice goals.”

Iowa substituted senior captain Kali Feiereisel for Moran in the 84th minute. Feiereisel made a stop at 89:18, but Davidson controlled the rebound to knock one in just before time expired, ending Iowa’s five-game shutout streak.

The Hawkeyes recorded an incredible 485:48 minutes without allowing a goal before Davidson’s score in the final minute of the game. The scoreless streak sets a school record.

“We have a couple real good things this week to work on offensively and defensively as we prepare for Iowa State and Nebraska,” Rainey said.

Iowa will complete its three week road stretch next weekend with a trip to Iowa State to take on the Cyclones in the Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk series Friday night. Sunday, the Hawkeyes will kick off in Lincoln, NE with a game against future Big Ten opponent Nebraska.
