    The Hoosiers opened the 2014 season with a 2-0 victory over Indiana State in Bloomington. Both goals were scored by junior Jessie Bujouves, matching her season total from 2013. Senior Jordan Woolums and freshman Kayla Smith recorded assists in the game as well.

    In goal, it was redshirt junior Sarah Stone who got the start in goal and made three saves on her way to the shutout, the fourth of her career.

    Then on Sunday, IU traveled to Eastern Michigan and allowed two goals in a span of 55 seconds midway through the first half and trailed 2-0 at the half. In the second half, the Hoosiers bombarded the EMU goal but were unable to find a goal and lost by that 2-0 margin.

    Head coach Amy Berbary is in her second year leading the Hoosiers. She guided the team to a 15-7-1 record last year, including trips to the Big Ten and NCAA Tournaments for the first time since 2007.

    But before she joined the Hoosiers, Berbary was an assistant coach at Auburn for five seasons, and was named Associate Head Coach in her final season. She helped mentor some of the top players in Auburn soccer history and produced a number of program-bests in various offensive categories.

    The Hoosiers welcomed 10 new players to the roster over the summer - nine freshmen and one transfer. And in the first game of the season against Indiana State, five of them got their first collegiate playing time - including Kayla Smith, Taylor Coley and Molly Pittman in the starting lineup.

    With the 10 newcomers, there are also 17 players returning from last years record-setting team. On the attacking side of things, Abby Smith, Jordan Woolums and Jessie Bujouves bring back a majority of the offensive punch.

    In goal, redshirt junior Sarah Stone is the most likely candidate to take over between the pipes after the graduation of Shannon Flower, who played every minute of all 23 games last year. Stone, however, does have some experience, having played over 600 minutes in 2012.

    RECAPPING 2013
    The 2013 season was one of the best - if not the best - in the history of Indiana Women's Soccer. The Hoosiers set program records for wins (15), goals (43), assists (46) and shutouts (9) on their way to a fourth place finish in the Big Ten -- after being selected 12th in the Big Ten Preseason Coaches Poll.

    The 15-7-1 record propelled the Hoosiers to their first appearances in the Big Ten Tournament and NCAA Tournament since 2007. Overall, it was just the fourth appearance in the NCAA Tournament in program history.
