IOWA CITY - The Setting
First Time For Everything
Iowa Stuns No. 20 Purdue
Purdue struck first in the 25th minute when Jill Sarbaugh scored to put the Boilermakers on top, 1-0. Iowa responded with just over eight minutes left in the first half when freshman Manon Engelhardt scored off a cross from freshman Jackie Kaeding. Kaeding received an excellent pass from sophomore Ashley Schlueter and sent the ball into the box, where Engelhardt redirected the pass into the back of the net.
The Hawkeyes netted the game-winning goal in the 108th minute. Kaeding received a pass and sprinted towards the end line, where she was tackled before she could make an attempt on target. Head referee Tim Deters pointed to the spot, signaling a penalty kick. Freshman Kelsey Shaw stepped to the spot and calmly drilled the ball past Purdue goalkeeper Lauren Mason to help the Hawkeyes record their first Big Ten victory this season. The goal was Shaw's second game-winning goal this year.
The Iowa defense was strong throughout the entire match, including freshman goalkeeper Erin MacIsaac who recorded a career-high 12 saves. The Iowa back line did a great job of stopping the Boilermakers, who outshot Iowa 34-12 and gained nine corners.
Heartbreak Against Indiana
After Indiana gained the lead in the 31st minute, Iowa responded in the 56th minute when freshman Jackie Kaeding scored her first goal in Black and Gold off an assist from freshman Manon Engelhardt. The Hoosiers struck again in the 68th minute to put Indiana back on top, 2-1.
The Hawkeye offense once again responded quickly, netting the equalizer just a minute and a half after Indiana scored the go-ahead goal. Freshman Kelly Warner was the second Hawkeye to score her first collegiate goal on Sunday, knocking in a corner kick from sophomore Jamie Maltman to send the match into overtime.
Indiana netted the game-winning goal 5:54 seconds into the first overtime period when Molly Beckwith found the back of the net.
