Five Hoosiers Score in Shutout Victory over Vermont
Sept. 5, 2008
BLOOMINGTON, IND. - Five different players scored for the Indiana women's soccer team, as the Hoosiers sailed to a 5-0 victory over Vermont in their opening game of the Hoosier Classic. IU unleashed 30 shots in the contest, putting 15 on goal, and allowed just four to the Catamounts. Indiana's five goals were the most by a Hoosier team since a 5-1 victory over Florida International in 2004.
Darby Hannon, Liz Holby, Chloe McKay, Kerri Krawczak and Kelly Lawrence scored goals for the Hoosiers, who improved to 2-2-0 with the win. It marked the first career goals for Hannon and Krawczak. Lindsay Campbell made one save to notch a shutout in her first career appearance. Christie Kotynski had a pair of assists in the win for IU.
Indiana got on the board in the 38th minute, with Hannon scoring her first career goal. Kotynski got the play started by blasting a shot from 25 yards at keeper Eliza Bradley. Bradley was unable to corral the attempt, and Hannon crashed the net to put home the rebound at 37:35 to make it 1-0. The Hoosiers dominated the opening half, outshooting the Catamounts 15-2 in the frame and taking a one-goal lead into the half.
The Hoosiers came out of the locker room blazing and extended the lead to 2-0. Carly Samp streaked down the right side into the corner and fed a beautiful cross through the goal mouth to Holby on the back post. The Inverness, Ill., native took the feed and tucked it past the keeper into the far corner to give Indiana a two-goal lead at 47:36. It marked the second goal of the season for the junior.
McKay joined the action at 65:59 with her first goal of the season. Kotynski took the ball near the top of the 18 and slipped it across to McKay. The sophomore spun and ripped a left-footed shot from 20 yards into the left side of the net to make it 3-0 in favor of the hosts.
Krawczak became the second Hoosier to net her first career goal in the contest, scoring at 74:59 to make the score 4-0. Indiana played a ball off a Catamount defender and past the end line to draw a corner on the far side. McKay served the ball into the box and Krawczak headed it home for the Hoosiers.
McKay continued her assault on the Catamount defense in the 79th minute, and she drew a free kick just outside the box for IU. Lawrence took the kick and tucked it just underneath the crossbar for her second goal of the year to make it 5-0 at 78:52.
In the first game of the Hoosier Classic on Friday, Wisconsin got a golden goal in the first overtime period to earn a 2-1 win over Cal Poly.
The Hoosiers will return to action on Sunday in the final day of the Hoosier Classic, when they will take on Cal Poly at 11 a.m. Wisconsin and UVM will do battle in the second game of the day as the Hoosiers go for their third straight title in the annual tournament.
