Box Score

OXFORD, Ohio -- The 18th-ranked University of Iowa field hockey team defeated Miami (Ohio), 3-1, Sunday afternoon. The victory extends the Hawkeyes winning streak to five in a row.

Iowa jumped out to an early lead as Natalie Cafone scored an unassisted goal off a rebound at the 14:08 mark to give the visitors a 1-0 lead. The Hawkeyes controlled play much of the first half outshooting Miami (Ohio), 9-2.

"Natalie got us on the board early," said head coach Tracey Griesbaum. "That allowed us to play with poise throughout the first half."

It was Cafone again in the second half scoring another unassisted goal to put the Hawkeyes up by two. Cafone worked her way into the circle and hit the top of the net for the goal. Miami (Ohio) fought back as Ali Froede scored at the 48:39 mark to make it a one goal game but the Hawkeyes answered right back as Sara Watro put the game out of reach redirecting a shot from Dani Hemeon for the goal.

"Overall it was a great team win with all lines contributing," said Griesbaum.

The Hawkeyes return to action Friday as they host Penn State. Game time is set for 2 p.m. (CT) at Grant Field and can be seen on the Big Ten Network.
