King claims 300th victory as IU goes 4-1 at Bucknell

Indiana got back to its winning ways over the weekend, as the Hoosiers claimed a 4-1 record in their penultimate weekend of regular season play.

On Friday, the Hoosiers (19-11, 3-2 CWPA West)  dispatched two division opponents by a combined score of 32-8.

IU was out of the gate quickly in their first game against Gannon, recording 11 goals in the first two quarters. The Hoosiers were effective on their power play opportunities against Gannon, converting on six of their eight chances.

Freshman defender Amanda Redfern posted a career-high with four goals.

IU continued their first-half onslaught against Mercyhurst, as the Hoosiers took a 9-1 lead into halftime en route to a 17-4 victory.

Saturday, in Lewisburg, Pa. for the Bison Invitational, IU defeated host Bucknell 16-7. The victory gave IU its 16th win in their last 18 matches.

Hours later, IU fell 8-5 to the No. 14 Hartwick College, which scored four answered goals in the second quarter.

“We gave up some goals in the second quarter that really put us in a hole,” IU coach Barry King said. “We struggled shooting the ball for the majority of the contest.”
