Hoosiers look to snap skid against in-state rival Purdue, Illinois

The IU women’s soccer team will return home this weekend, enjoying the comforts of Bloomington for the first time since Sept. 28. The Hoosiers (5-10-0, 0-6) have been on the road the last four games, narrowly losing each game by a one-goal deficit.

“I think the kids are going to be excited to get back on their pitch,” IU coach Mick Lyon said. “You know, with short, fast grass, instead of this thick, mush stuff they have up north, that’s definitely going to be to our benefit.”

No rest for weary Hoosiers

The mood this week at women’s soccer practice was shockingly upbeat.

Last Sunday, the Hoosiers (2-3) were outplayed in the finale of the Hoosier Classic and were defeated 3-1 by underdog Cal Poly. The loss placed the Hoosiers in a disappointing third for the tournament.
