Cal Poly Knocks Off Hoosiers, 3-1
Sept. 7, 2008
BLOOMINGTON, IND. - Cal Poly's Tiffany Gummow scored a pair of goals in the opening 10 minutes of the second half to give the Mustangs (2-4-0) a 3-1 win over the Indiana women's soccer team on Sunday. Kelly Lawrence scored the lone goal of the contest for the Hoosiers (2-3-0).
Cal Poly struck first in the 13th minute on a wild sequence in the box. Ashley Vallis broke down the right side and sent a tough-angle shot on net that Lauren Hollandsworth turned away. But the rebound came right to Kristina Condon-Sherwood, whose attempt deflected off the right post and back into the six. There, Meggie O'Hagan picked up the loose ball and deposited it into the net for her first goal of the season.
The Hoosiers came right back on the offensive, and aggressive play in the box led to a foul on Cal Poly and a penalty kick for IU. Kelly Lawrence stepped to the line and delivered it into the lower right corner for her third goal of the season. It was the second time in a span of four matches that Lawrence has converted a PK.
In the second half, Gummow came through huge for the Mustangs, converting a pair of scores to give Cal Poly a two-goal lead. Her first tally came on a lovely strike from 30 yards on the left-hand side that snuck just out of Hollandsworth's reach and under the crossbar at 46:15. Then in the 55th minute, the Mustangs were awarded a corner, and Gummow snuck a cross from Kaleena Andruss just inside the near post at 54:41 to make it 3-1.
The Hoosiers held a 20-14 edge in shots in the game, but Coral Hoover's outstanding play in net was the difference in the contest. The keeper made eight saves, including a pair of leaping stops in the first half to keep IU at bay. Hollandsworth made two saves and Lindsay Campbell made one stop for Indiana.
The Hoosiers are back in action next weekend, when they travel to the greater Washington, D.C., area for a pair of contests. IU will take on George Mason on Friday at 7 p.m. and then will face Loyola (Md.) at noon on Sunday.
