Indiana Opens Regular Season With Pair of Home Games
Aug. 16, 2012
RECORD VS. OPPONENTS
Indiana and Ohio have played just once prior, with the Hoosiers taking a 5-1 decision in Bloomington on Nov. 4, 2011.
Starting in 2007, the Hoosiers have gone 6-0-1 in games against opponents from the Mid-American Conference.
GETTING A GOOD START
And in regular season home openers, IU has an all-time ledger of 10-3-1 with the last win coming in 2009 against Wright State at Armstrong Stadium.
At the World Cup, Velasquez did not play in the first contest of pool play but came on as a substitute in the second match against the United States and nearly tallied a goal just seconds after entering the field of play. She then started the final game of the tournament against North Korea and played all 90 minutes on her way to being named "Player of the Match" by FIFA.
In the Olympics, Velasquez was a starting forward for all three pool play games and finished the tournament with nine shots as Colombia failed to advance out of pool play.
YOU LOOK FAMILIAR
Joining Lyon on the IU sidelines this year will be a couple of familiar faces to IUWS fans. Chloe McKay (2007-10) and Megan Reinhardt (2005-07) will serve as assistant coaches. McKay was a volunteer/student assistant coach with the Hoosiers last year while Reinhardt was the goalkeeper coach at the University of Indianapolis last season.
EXCITING EXHIBITION WIN
Then in the final period, Bujouves tacked on her third goal of the day before NKU rallied with a pair of late goals. Finally, just before the final horn, Rebecca Candler touched home the sixth and final goal of the game.
