    Go Hoosiers!
    October 7, 1999


    GAME INFORMATION: The Hoosiers (2-5-4, 1-2-2 Big Ten) travel to Minnesota for a 3 p.m. contest Friday, and then head to Wisconsin for a 1 p.m. game Sunday afternoon.

    THE SERIES: The Hoosiers trail Minnesota 2-5-2 all-time. The two played to a 2-2 tie with IU advancing with a 5-4 edge in penalty kicks in the 1998 Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal round. Indiana is even with Wisconsin at 4-4 after defeating the Badgers 4-0 in Bloomington last season.

    HEAD COACH JOE KELLEY... is in his seventh season as the Indiana head coach. He has an overall record of 66-59-6 (.527) and 19-22-3 (.466) in Big Ten play. Kelley has led the Hoosiers to the 1996 Big Ten Tournament Championship and trips to the NCAA Tournament in 1996 and 1998.

    LAST GAME: The Hoosiers scored early, but came away with their fourth tie of the season against Butler at Kuntz Stadium Tuesday night.

    The teams went back and fourth in the overtimes with IU taking four of its 14 shots and the Bulldogs (4-6-1) taking five of their 14 attempts in the extra sessions. Each of the three Indiana (2-5-4) shots in the second overtime came in the 111th and 112th minutes and forced Butler goalkeeper Meghan Partenheimer to make a save. IU senior Tracy Grose fired the first of the three, freshman Kate Kastl tried off the rebound, and freshman Kristen Sprunger took the third shot after a Butler turnover.

    Butler's best chance to win came in the 104th minute as Erin Riley appeared to scored, but was called for offside. Angela Lehman also took a shot in the 105th minute, but IU goalkeeper Ashley Davis stopped it for her third save of the night. Davis finished the game with four saves.

    The Hoosiers led 1-0 for most of the game. Kastl put IU on the board in the 16th minute with the first goal of her career. Freshman Emily Markwell garnered her first assist on the play. Markwell passed from the right side through the box where freshman Jenny Mann decoyed the defender and Kastl filled behind to put the ball in the lower left corner from eight yards out on the right side.

    Butler tied the game at 89:22 as Kara Bryan scored from 18 yards out on a breakaway.

    CLOSING IN ON 20: Senior goalkeeper Ashley Davis needs just one more win to become the second 20-game winner in IU history. Merit Elzey won 35 from 1994-97.

    NOT WASTING ANY TIME: IU freshmen Jenny Mann, Jessie Rabin, Kristen Sprunger and Kate Kastl have already tallied at least one point in their collegiate careers. Mann found the net from 25 yards out in the 60th minute at Xavier, while Sprunger scored in the 89th minute against Montana as Kastl tallied the assist. Rabin scored her first collegiate goal in the 2-1 win over Northwestern. Sprunger also recorded an assist in the loss to Penn State.

    DEFENDING HOME TURF: The Hoosiers are 36-18-2 (.661) all-time at Armstrong Stadium and have only lost once in their last 12 home games.

    AIM AND FIRE: Senior Tracy Grose is second on the career shots list at IU with 185. She needs 29 more to break assistant coach Wendy Dillinger's (1993-97) record of 213.

    SENIOR NIGHT: IU senior night is Friday October 22 when the Hoosiers face intrastate rival Purdue for the first time in regular season play.

    NO GOAL FOR YOU: IU senior goalkeeper Ashley Davis has 12.5 shutouts in her career. Davis need just two more to break the IU record of 14 held by Merit Elzey (1994-97). Davis does hold the Indiana record for shutouts in Big Ten play with five.

    INCREASING AGGRESSION: Fouling is a good sign for IU. The Hoosiers are 0-3-1 when being outfouled, 0-1-1 when fouls are even, and 2-1-2 when having more fouls.

    COUNTDOWN TO 100: Tracy Grose needs just 25 points to become the first IU player to reach 100 career points.
