Indiana Earns Draw at DePaul
CHICAGO - Freshmen Lindsay McCarthy netted her fifth goal of the season as the Indiana women's soccer team came away with a 1-1 tie at DePaul on Sunday afternoon.
With the tie, IU moved to 8-6-3, while DePaul moved to 9-7-2. The contest marked the final road match of the year for the Hoosiers.
"We played a lot better then we did on Friday," said head coach Mick Lyon. "We did about two hours of training on Saturday, working on some things that we saw we didn't execute against Purdue, and it was just a better game for us."
Indiana got on the board first at the 17:04 mark. Freshman Kristin Radcliffe started the action with a corner kick. Sophomore Missy Vierling took control of the ball and fed a pass to McCarthy for the lone IU score.
The Blue Demons scored their goal in the 36th minute as Kelly Lord launched a kick just out of the grasp of Hoosier goalie Lauren Fabbro.
"Our defense played extremely well today," said Lyon. "The goal they scored was our own fault for thinking the ball was going out of bounds, and we stopped playing."
Fabbro made four saves on the day. Both teams took 16 shots on the day, while IU owned a 9-5 shots on goal advantage.
Indiana returns home for its season finale as the Cream and Crimson host Butler on Friday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. Friday will also be senior day for the Hoosiers as IU honors its lone senior, Kim Grodek, before the match.
