Hoosiers' Shutout Evansville For Second Win Of The Season
Aug. 28, 2009
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana women's soccer team recorded their second win of the season with a 3-0 shutout over the Evansville Purple Aces (1-1-0) at Armstrong Stadium Friday night. Three different Hoosiers (2-0-0) recorded goals in the game while Lindsay Campbell posted her second consecutive shutout to start the 2009 season.
The Hoosiers had two first half goals, one from each Devon Beach and Orianica Velasquez Herrera. The goals marked the first for Beach on the season and the first collegiate score for Velasquez Herrera. Jocelyn Moses added the third and final goal to secure the win in the 77th minute.
With her second shutout of the year, Campbell has now recorded five straight shutouts dating back to last season. She has not allowed a goal in the last 510:58, which is the second longest shutout streak in IU women's soccer history. The longest came from Oct. 2 through Oct. 31, 1993, when the Hoosiers stifled its opponents for 808:34.
"This is a very good result because Evansville is going to win their share of games this year," Indiana head coach Mick Lyon said after the game. "Certainly getting two tremendous goals in the first half from Devon and (Orianica) was huge for us to get off to a great start."
The Hoosiers controlled the play from the outset and got on the scoreboard first with a long shot from outside the box by Devon Beach at the 19-minute-mark, with the assist going to Chloe McKay to take a 1-0 lead. Beach tapped the ball to McKay off the corner kick and McKay then dropped it off to Beach who sent a perfect shot to far corner of the goal for her first tally of the season.
Velasquez Herrera made the board read 2-0 in IU's favor with her first career tally on a Devon Beach assist at the 13:59 mark. The freshman blasted home a shot from 30 yards into the upper-right corner of the net for her first collegiate goal in her first game.
After continuing to control play throughout the half, junior Jocelyn Moses tallied her first goal of the season with thirteen minutes left on the board. Carly Samp sent a cross to the middle of the box to Liz Holby who touched the ball to the right side where Moses was waiting to put the ball in the back of the net to give Indiana a 3-0 lead.
The Hoosiers outshot the Purple Aces in the game, 22-3 and earned 11 corner kicks to five for the Purple Aces.
Indiana will take on Central Michigan at 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon at Armstrong Stadium.
