Hoosiers Move Up To No. 22 In Polls As They Get Ready To Host Butler and Green Bay
Sept. 15, 2009
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana women's soccer team (6-1-0) moved up to No. 22 in the NSCAA poll this week as they get ready to host the Butler Bulldogs on Wednesday and the Green Bay Phoenix on Friday. The team will also host is second STARS Clinic at 6 p.m. on Wednesday
LAST TIME OUT...
Hofstra got on the board early in the first half and then took a 2-0 lead early in the second half. But Indiana began to mount its offense with 25 minutes remaining but was not able to put one in the net. Finally, with less than nine minutes remaining Kelly Lawrence took a free kick from midfield that caught the Hofstra keeper of guard and slipped past her for her first goal of the season. Then with just over a minute left, Christie Kotynski took a centering pass from Devon Beach off a corner and tied the game. Then in the second overtime session, Lawrence took a free kick from 30 yards out and left a soft pass for Kotynski who blasted a shot through the keeper's hands for the game-winner in the 105th minute.
The streak would come to an end against St. John's two days later when the Red Storm got a pair of goals within three minutes of each other late in the second half to erase a 1-0 IU lead on a goal by Chloe McKay.
A LOOK AT BUTLER
Jessica Schein has been the main goalkeeper for the Bulldogs, posting a 1.33 goals against average and made 20 saves through the six games she has played.
A LOOK AT GREEN BAY
While the offense has struggled as a whole, there are a pair of players to keep an eye on in Nicole Dooher and Corey Arno. Both players have scored twice while Arno has also added an assist for a team-best five points on the year.
In goal, Maddie Drusch has made 34 saves and posted a 1.20 goals against average in 522:56 minutes of action.
JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS ALL OVER...
The last time Indiana rallied from a two goal deficit was on Sept. 25, 1994 against Minnesota. In that game, the Hoosiers scored their first goal in the 64th minute and went on to add two more in regulation.
The win also marked just the 10th time since the start of the 2003 season that Hofstra had lost on its home turf.
