No. 23 Indiana Ready For No. 25 Penn State and No. 15/13 Ohio State
Oct. 28, 2009
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana remained perfect at Armstrong Stadium on the year with a 2-0 win over Iowa last Sunday behind goals from Jocelyn Moses and Orianica Velasquez Herrera. The teams were going back and forth for the entire first half and then most of the second half as well before Devon Beach broke free in the box and took a shot that was blocked and fell right to the foot of Moses, who deposited it into the net for her second goal of the year. Then Lex Dickison stepped up big in goal and made a diving save on a PK in the 87th minute to perserve a 1-0 lead. Velasquez Herrera added her fifth goal of the year with 10 seconds left in the game to put it out of reach.
Penn State defeated Illinois last weekend, 6-0, while Ohio State claimed a 1-0 overtime win against Purdue in it's most recent contest.
