October 15, 1999 DAVIS SETS SHUTOUT RECORD FOR HOOSIERS
Bloomington, Indiana - IU senior Ashley Davis moved into first on the school career shutout list at 14.5 with her shutout over Illinois in the 0-0 tie at Bill Armstrong Stadium Friday evening.
Davis recorded six saves on he evening with none more important than her stop in the 108th minute. Illinois took a corner kick that came down in position for Laura Freeman to get a head on it. As Freeman dove and struck the ball, it appeared to be the game-winner, but Davis snagged the ball at full extension just over a foot outside the goal.
The Hoosiers (2-6-6, 1-3-4 Big Ten) had several good opportunities in overtime and outshot the Illini (9-4-2, 3-3-2 Big Ten) 4-1 in the extra sessions. Senior Tracy Grose took both IU shots in the first overtime with one sailing high and the other forcing Illinois goalkeeper Sarah Heggen to stop it form reaching the net. In the second overtime, IU freshman Kate Kastl fired on goal for the fourth time in the game, which was a game and career high. Kristen Sprunger, also a freshman, had the other Indiana shot in the second overtime.
The Illini did have a few more opportunities, taking 15 shots to IU's 12 and garnering 10 corner kicks to the Hoosiers five. Indiana continued to play aggressive as they outfouled Illinois 25-18.
Davis moved ahead of Merit Elzey (1994-97) who finished her career with 14 shutouts.
The Hoosiers return to action as they host Iowa Sunday at 2 p.m.
