SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

In its last match of the season, the Iowa soccer team fell in overtime to No. 23 Purdue, 3-2, in West Lafayette, Ind.

The Hawkeyes lagged, 2-0, before staging a comeback to send the game into extra time. Senior Nicole Slevin took a shot at the 58-minute mark.

The rebound resulted in a Boilermaker penalty, which senior Alex Seydel converted for her fifth penalty kick of the season.

Slevin then connected on a ball with sophomore Morgan Showlater, who headed in the equalizer for Iowa in the 88th minute.

However, Purdue attacked relentlessly in overtime with five shots in five minutes. Iowa goalkeeper Emily Moran, who made eight saves, blocked two shots in the extra period.

The Hawkeyes end the season at 9-11 overall, 1-9 in the Big Ten.

“We used so much energy,” Iowa head coach Ron Rainey said. “To tie that game up on the road against the fourth-place team in league is awesome. It really shows a lot from a character standpoint of our team. … We said, ‘Let’s try to end this season with a win.’ We talked real quick and went with it. It didn’t work out.”
