One goal and some stout goalkeeping were enough to defeat the Hawkeyes
MINNEAPOLIS – Driven by a record-breaking crowd of 1,909 attendees, the University of Minnesota soccer team clinched the 1-0 victory over Iowa on Senior Day at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium.
The Golden Gophers (6-7-1, 2-4-0 Big Ten) outshot Iowa (3-5-5, 0-2-3 Big Ten) 18-12, despite the Hawkeyes leading in shots on goal, 6-5.
Graduate defender Gabbie Cesarone scored the game winner off a corner from fellow graduate, McKenna Buisman. Cesarone's goal is her fourth this season, all of which have been off set piece plays.
Picking up her fifth shutout on the year, senior goalkeeper Megan Plaschko matched her season high six saves. Plaschko stopped all six of Iowa's chances, four of which came in the second half.
