IU Women’s Soccer Coach Mick Lyon said his team failed to create shots in their Aug. 7 exhibition loss against DePaul.
Five seniors were recognized before the game, and all played later on, but the Hoosiers (6-12-1, 2-8) did not prevent a Golden Gopher shutout. Goals in the fifth, 16th and 25th minutes determined the final result of the game.
In the 18-year history of the IU women’s soccer team, the Hoosiers have recorded just one win against Penn State. That win came in the 1996 Big Ten Tournament. Thursday, the Nittany Lions gave the visiting Hoosiers (5-11-1, 1-7) their worst loss this season with a 6-1 final score.
After defeating Iowa 3-2 on the road Sunday, the Hoosiers do not have the luxury of enjoying their win for long as they travel to play Penn State on Thursday.
Having lost six straight games in the Big Ten, the IU women’s soccer team is looking for some comfort from Sunday’s trip to Iowa City, Iowa, during which the Hoosiers (4-10-1, 0-6) will play Iowa, which is also looking for its first Big Ten win.
IU women’s soccer team will be back at Bill Armstrong Stadium for another Big Ten competition after a 10-day break. The Hoosiers (4-9-1) will play host to Michigan on Sunday, a team who is also seeking for its first Big Ten win this season.
The Hoosiers (4-8-1) will not only be looking for a long-awaited victory against their rivals when they play at 4 p.m. Thursday in West Lafayette, but they are also looking for their first Big Ten win of the season.
The IU women’s soccer team lost consecutive games to Northwestern and Wisconsin during the opening weekend of Big Ten play.
Since a 6-0 win against Butler on Aug. 29, the IU women's soccer team has played six consecutive home games with two more this weekend to close out September.
With Big Ten play just around the corner, the Hoosiers reclaimed their home territory, forcing a 1-1 tie with Kent State on Friday and defeating Central Michigan, 2-1, on Sunday.
