April 13, 2013
GENEVA, Ohio - No. 15 Indiana avenged their senior night loss to No. 18 Michigan with a 10-7 victory in the first round of the CWPA Western Conference Championships at the Maytha Pool. This is the first time ever the Wolverines have lost a match at the Western Divisional Finals.
Perhaps most eager to redemption was IU's lone senior Jakie Kohli. Just a few minutes into the starting quarter Kohli put the first points on the board, giving Indiana an early 1-0 lead. Kohli finished the match with two goals, two assists, three steals, and two field blocks.
Both of Kohli's goals came in the first quarter, keeping Indiana afloat after Michigan netted a quick three.
Fournier tossed a perfect one-touch pass to Schroeder for the tying goal. Then Fournier scored three of her own, moving into fourth place on Indiana's all-time goals scored list with 209, passing Brooke Zimmerman with 206. Fournier only needs 16 more before she moves into third place currently held by Krista Peterson with 224. Fournier finished the match with one assist, three steals, and an impressive four field blocks.
Candyce Schroeder was equally impressive. The freshman center earned her sixth career start, scoring two goals and racking up career highs of two assists and two field blocks.
In her first game back in nearly a month goalie Jessica Gaudreault earned 11 saves on 23 shots.
Goals from Alexis Jones, Shelby Taylor, and Colleen McNaught gave the Hoosiers lead they never surrendered, and the final buzzer sounded with a score of 10-7 in Indiana's favor. The Hoosiers will face Gannon University at 8:30 tonight.
