Key Game At Minnesota Closes Out Regular Season For Hoosiers
Nov. 5, 2009
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana women's soccer team is in search of its second trip to the NCAA Tournament in three season and a win at Minnesota would go a long way in helping them reach that plateau. The Hoosiers suffered a crushing 2-1 loss in double overtime against arch-rival and No. 23 Purdue at Armstrong Stadium. The Boilers got the game-winner with just 21 seconds left on the clock in the second OT period. IU took the lead 1-0 just 25 seconds into the first half but Purdue matched it two minutes later. The loss was just the second of the year at home for the Hoosiers after they dropped a 2-1 decison to Penn State just four days earlier.
Minnesota is coming off a 1-0 win at home against Northwestern last Friday, their first win in their last five conference games.
