November 11, 1998 INDIANA DOMINATES IN NCAA FIRST ROUND
Bloomington, Ind. -- The Indiana women's soccer team dominated the second half against Wright State, winning 3-1 to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
The Hoosiers (14-7-1) took control of the game in the middle of the second half. Freshman midfielder Kelly Kram scored on Wright State (8-11-2) goalie Randi Freeman at 61:08 to give IU a 2-0 lead. Then Kendal Willis scored eight minutes later to give IU an overwhelming 3-0 lead. The Hoosiers are now 1-1 all-time in NCAA competition. With the victory, Indiana remained unbeaten at home with a 9-0 record.
Wright State's Nicole Marchese scored at 73:43, but it didn't matter. The Hoosiers were not going to be denied a trip to the second round.
IU junior forward Tracy Grose scored her 14th goal of the season in the first half, setting an IU single season record for goals. It was a textbook play as Abby Ryan centered into the middle of the penalty box and Grose placed it in the middle of the net.
