Hoosiers Homestand Continues With Two Games This Weekend
Aug. 23, 2012
RECORD VS. OPPONENTS
This will be the first meeting between the Hoosiers and the Bears. However, Missouri State head coach Rob Brewer and IU head coach Mick Lyon are very familiar with each other. Brewer has been the head coach at MSU since 1996 and Lyon was the head coach at Evansville - also in the Missouri Valley Conference - from 1993-2001.
GETTING A GOOD START
Velasquez was in the starting lineup for all three pool play games in London and tallied nine shots overall, as Colombia failed to advance out of pool play following losses to North Korea, France and United States.
The summer prior, Velasquez helped Colombia to an appearance in the FIFA Women's World Cup. She 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 was named "Player of the Match" by FIFA.
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.
Then in the second game of the year against Ohio, Nouanesengsy scored the first goal of the game for IU by beating a pair of OU defenders and slotting it past the keeper.
She has four goals on the year after and 10 for her career.
