The Hokies (6-1) played brilliantly on both sides of the ball, placing 11 of their 22 shots on-goal, as three different Hokies’ tallied one goal apiece. The Tech defense also swarmed the Hoosiers, holding IU (2-4-1) to just three shots on-goal.

Tech’s offensive attacked paid off early in the first half, as junior midfielder Madi Conyers connected on the team’s second shot in the 12th minute for her first goal of the season. The Chesterfield, Virginia, native settled on a through ball from sophomore defender Megan Goudy near the 12-yard line and sent a bending shot around L’Hommedieu toward the far left post. Freshman forward Bridget Patch also tallied an assist on the play.

Sophomore midfielder Kristina Diana added to the team’s advantage in the 21st minute, finishing an easy chip shot right in front of L’Hommedieu. The Fairfax, Virginia, native was in perfect position to score off a previously blocked shot from redshirt freshman defender Kelsey Irwin.

Buzzing all evening, Irwin iced the game in the 57th minute, connecting on a free kick from 35 yards outside the box. She directed it over L’Hommedieu’s shoulder and toward the right post for her second goal of the season.

Tonight’s shutout is the squad’s third of the season, as freshman goalkeeper Mandy McGlynn made three saves on the night. Indiana’s goalkeeper Sarah L’Hommedieu finished with eight.
