The No. 10 Iowa field-hockey squad (5-3) won and lost a pair of matches over the weekend in Kent, Ohio.

On Sept. 21, the Hawkeyes fell to Drexel, 2-1. Iowa got its only goal from junior Dani Hemeon at the 56:05 mark. Hemeon received a feed in from senior Niki Schultheis and converted her third penalty corner of the season.

Sunday was a different story for the Hawkeyes — the team got off to a fast start, when Natalie Cafone scored the team’s first goal 1:49 into the match.

“We definitely went on the attack today, which was nice,” head coach Tracey Griesbaum said in a release.

The team blanked Kent State (4-4), 6-0. The shutout was redshirt senior Kelsey Boyce’s third of the year. Cafone posted a hat trick and also assisted senior Kelsey Mitchell’s first goal of the match.

Mitchell scored twice, and senior Marike Stribos also posted a goal for the Hawkeyes.
