Field Hockey ready for home opener

IU field hockey will open its home schedule this weekend against California on Friday and UC Davis on Sunday.

The Hoosiers opened their 2014 season last weekend by picking up a pair of wins against New Hampshire and St. Louis.

Senior forward Audra Heilman is coming off of an opening weekend during which she earned Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week. She scored six goals and registered an assist in the first two games of the year. IU earned its first shutout of the year in a 6-0 win over St. Louis.

California opened its 2014 season by splitting a pair of overtime matches. The Golden Bears defeated the Fairfield Stags 2-1 before losing to No. 18 Delaware 3-2.

The Hoosiers will play California at 2 p.m. Friday.

IU’s second game will be at noon Sunday against UC Davis. The Aggies lost to the Stags 2-1 to open their season last weekend.

This weekend’s games will be two of just eight home games for the Hoosiers this season. After this weekend, IU won’t play again in Bloomington until Oct. 3 against Michigan in the team’s Big Ten ?home-opener.
