ISU tops Northern Iowa, moves into MVC Final Four

WATERLOO, Iowa — The fifth-seeded Indiana State women’s soccer team advanced to the semifinals of the Missouri Valley Conference tournament after defeating fourth-seeded Northern Iowa 4-3 in a penalty shootout at the Cedar Valley Soccer Complex.

Despite combining for 38 total shots, Indiana State and Northern Iowa played a scoreless draw through 110 minutes on Sunday, with the Sycamores leading 7-3 in shots on goal. ISU also led 12-6 in corner kicks, taking six in each half.

Aubrie Musselman led Indiana State with seven shots and four shots on goal during regulation, while Erin Mitchell extended her school record by posting her seventh shutout of the season with three saves.

As the match went to penalty kicks, ISU sent Elle Steele, Natalie Vaught, Marisa Windisch, Shelby Troyer and Kourtney Vassar to the field along with Mitchell in goal.

Mitchell provided the early momentum, saving the first two PKs by Northern Iowa while Steele and Vaught both scored. UNI got on the board with their next two attempts, while Windisch hit the crossbar and Troyer scored.

After the Panthers scored on their fifth kick, Vassar stepped up and buried her shot into the net to send the Sycamores on to the semifinals. Sunday’s match is officially labeled a draw — leaving iSU 7-9-3 and Northern Iowa 8-9-2 — but it marks just the third time in school history that Indiana State has advanced in the MVC Tournament. ISU won one game in 2004 and two games in 2008.

ISU will head to Omaha, Neb., next weekend, battling top-seeded and regular-season champion Evansville at 4:30 p.m. Friday. The second match of the semifinals will feature No. 6 Creighton and No. 2 Illinois State after the Bluejays defeated third-seeded Drake in Des Moines, also on penalty kicks.
