Bloomington, Indiana -- The Indiana women's soccer team continued its late season charge by defeating Cincinnati 4-1 at Bill Armstrong Stadium Thursday night.
IU senior Tracy Grose led the Hoosiers (5-7-6) with four points and two shots on the night. Grose started the scoring early, finding the net past Cincinnati (8-9-1) goalkeeper Katrina Smolarczyk just 2:46 into the game. Grose took the pass from freshman Kate Kastl and placed in the lower left corner from 10 yards out. 22 minutes later Grose was on the other side, feeding freshman Courtney Pollock for the game-winner and the first goal of her career.
Cincinnati responded late in the first half when Amy Simonson controlled a loose ball in the middle of the box. Simonson set and fired from 15 yards past IU junior goalkeeper Chrissy Heubi, who made the first start of her career. That goal was the only one Heubi would allow as she collected seven saves for the game.
IU headed into the break with a 2-1 lead and would put the game away in the middle of the second half as freshman Lisa Tecklenburg scored in the 62nd m minute off a corner kick from Grose. For Grose, this was the second multi-assist game of her career and the 79th point of her career, which is second in IU history.
Indiana added one more score 16 minutes late as sophomore Kelly Kram netted her third goal of the season as Tecklenburg and Kastl assisted on the play. Tecklenburg had a career high three points and Kastl collected the first multi-assist game of her young career.
The Hoosiers return to action as they host No. 6 Notre Dame in the season finale Sunday at 3 p.m.
