Bloomington, Ind. - The Indiana field hockey team improved to 2-0 after a 3-0 win over Vermont (0-2) this afternoon, August 26 in Kent, Ohio.
In the two teams' first ever meeting, the Hoosiers tied the fourth-most shots in a single contest in program history, firing 36 in the contest, 26 of which were on goal.
IU held its opponent to just seven shots on the afternoon with just one at the cage. Viki Green successfully denied that attempt, picking up her first career shutout en route to her second win of the season.
Nicole Volgraf, Audra Heilman and Morgan Fleetwood each netted goals on the day, with both Hannah Boyer and Fleetwood earning assists.
The Hoosiers jumped ahead 1-0 on a Fleetwood goal off a corner in the 27th minute and doubled their lead on Volgraf's goal in the 37th minute of play. Heilman used a pass from Fleetwood out of the corner to record IU's third and final goal of the contest in the 47th minute.
Indiana will return to Bloomington to host Missouri State on August 31 at the IU Field Hockey Contest. Start time is slated for 4 p.m. ET.
