    LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Despite several game-tying goals from Indiana, a late third quarter surge led No. 5 Arizona State past the No. 8 seed Hoosiers, 13-9 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament Saturday afternoon at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center at USC. The Hoosiers will face UC San Diego tomorrow afternoon to play for seventh and eighth place in the tournament.

    Indiana controlled the opening minutes of the match, taking several shots on goal and handling the Sun Devils on defense, but a six-on-five opportunity drawn by ASU allowed them to score the first goal of the second round match. The Sun Devils tossed in another one soon after to go up 2-1 half way through the first quarter.

    Just seconds after checking in, Indiana center Candyce Schroeder netted the Hoosiers first goal. In just her second game back in over a month Schroeder finished with a team-high three goals, four earned exclusions, one assist, and one steal off the bench.

    Arizona State scored off another power play to go up 3-1 at the end of the first quarter.

    Senior Shae Fournier threw in a fastball off the assist from teammate Amanda Redfern to open up the second quarter. Colleen McNaught tied it soon after on a corner goal from the left side.

    Arizona State would move up one goal, and the Hoosiers would tie it three more times in the second quarter before junior Rebecca Gerrity grabbed a rebound and scored, moving the score to 6-5 and giving Indiana it's first lead in the NCAA Tournament.

    ASU tied the game once more on a penalty, but a powerful skip-shot from Schroeder pushed the Hoosiers up 7-6 in the third with two minutes to go in the period.

     

     

    A lag in Hoosier offense and defense allowed a fast 6-0 run by Arizona State that proved to be the difference in the match. Schroeder scored her third ball on a pwer-play and Meghan Lappan netted the final Indiana ball to finish the match with a 13-9 loss.

    Indiana will play UC San Diego tomorrow afternoon at 12:00 pm PT for seventh and eighth place.
