The No. 15 Iowa field-hockey team defeated Brown, 7-0, on Sept. 10 in Providence, R.I. The Hawkeye’s record advanced to 5-1 after the shutout.

Sophomore forward Kim Scraper netted four goals in the game to raise her Big Ten-leading total to 12. The performance marked the first time an Iowa player scored at least four goals in a game since Pattie Gillern scored five in a win over Missouri State on Sept. 28, 2003.

All four of Scraper’s goals were unassisted.

Scraper, the reigning Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week, scored twice early in the first half.

Sophomore Niki Schultheis then scored off a corner to put Iowa up, 3-0, at the break.

Head coach Tracey Griesbaum wasn’t satisfied, though.

“We started out a bit slowly in the first half,” she said in a release. “The second half was much better overall.”

The Hawkeyes had 37 shots on goal and nine penalty corners while holding the Brown Bears to two and one, respectively. Schultheis and junior Sarah Drake tacked on the two non-Scraper scores for the squad.

Iowa also defeated Providence, 4-1, at the Friar Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex in Providence on Sept. 9.

Scraper and Drake each scored twice in the contest.
