Field Hockey Shuts Out St. Louis, 6-0
Aug. 30, 2014
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - The Indiana field hockey team picked up its second win of the season against St. Louis, 6-0. The Hoosiers (2-0) used a well-balanced attack with four different players finding the back of the cage.
"It's the fun thing about our team, we can play people in positions they don't usually play and they still perform really well," said Indiana Head Coach Amy Robertson. "When we do slow it down a little and play with the purpose we need to play with, we are firing away and able to get it in the back of the net."
Sydney Supica got the Hoosiers on the board early with a goal off a penalty corner. Brigitta Haller and Mollie Getzfread were credited with the assist.
Heilman once again led the scoring with three goals - her second hat-trick in as many games. She found the back of the net twice in less than one minute to give Indiana a 3-0 lead.
Freshman and Louisville-native Maddie Latino recorded her first career goal in front of a hometown crowd. Her goal was assisted by Heilman and helped Indiana to a 4-0 halftime lead.
"It was a great feeling - especially in my hometown," said Latino. "I couldn't have asked for a better place for it to happen and I couldn't have down it without my teammates. We're always setting each other up and we're a team that connects well so I couldn't have asked for a better pass from Audra."
Heilman opened the second period with her third goal of the game - a reverse shot into the left side of the cage off an assist from Amanda Bennison.
Rachel Stauffer rounded out the scoring for Indiana after finding the cage on a penalty stroke.
Maggie Olson and Katie Johnson shared duties in the goal, with each playing a period and combining for three saves.
Megan Depew-Brady picked up 10 saves in the cage for the Billikens (0-2).
