The No. 11 Iowa field hockey team shut out Pacific, 4-0, on Sunday at Lakeside Field in Evanston, Ill.

Iowa raised its record to 13-3 overall; Pacific fell to 2-12.

Iowa took a 1-0 lead into halftime after sophomore Kelsey Mitchell put the Hawkeyes on the scoreboard with a goal in the 21st minute.

The Black and Gold added three goals after the break, the first coming off sophomore Marike Stribos' stick in the 49th minute.

Scores by sophomore Aubrey Coleman in the 61st minute and freshman Corinne Allen in the 65th minute put the game out of reach for the Tigers.

The win came a day after Iowa took care of No. 20 Northwestern, 5-2, in the Hawkeyes' final Big Ten matchup of the season. The Black and Gold finished 4-2 in the Big Ten; Iowa was winless in conference games last year. Iowa used a pair of goals from Jessica Barnett and single scores from Niki Schultheis, Coleman, and Mitchell to put away the Wildcats.

The Hawkeyes will play their final game of the regular season against Ball State on Friday in Muncie, Ind.

The Big Ten Tournament will start on Nov. 3 at University Park, Pa.
