Hoosiers Fall in Overtime Heartbreaker
Oct. 12, 2007
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - The Indiana field hockey team suffered a heartbreaking 1-0 overtime loss at No. 5 Michigan on Friday afternoon. Paige Laytos scored just over nine minutes into the first overtime period to give the Wolverines their fifth Big Ten victory. Indiana goalkeeper continued her dominant play this year with eight saves in the losing effort.
The Hoosiers have been relying on their defense all season, perhaps none more than they did today. Michigan (11-4, 5-0 Big Ten) had more shots (15-6) and penalty corners (12-5), but the Hoosiers were with them right until the end.
Indiana (6-5, 0-4 Big Ten) was not able to get their first shot on goal until the overtime period, but they did have scoring chances late in regulation, including a goal that was wiped off the board due to a penalty before the shot.
Through 13 games, Indiana has allowed just 14 goals and has yet to allow more than two goals in any one game.
Next up for the Hoosiers will be a home game with Michigan State on Saturday, Oct. 20. The game is scheduled to start at 4 p.m., a change from the originally announced time at the beginning of the year.
