Iowa’s road magic continued Thursday as it beat Michigan State, 1-0, in East Lansing and broke out of a two-game losing streak.

The Hawkeyes are 2-0 in conference games on the road this season and have posted shutouts in both games. In fact, they only have one road loss all season — a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Iowa State.

Iowa now stands at 4-2 in conference play, 9-3 overall.

Senior Melanie Pickert got the goal for the Black and Gold with a header late in the 51st minute of play. The goal came off a corner kick from sophomore Corey Burns, who registered an assist on the play.

The Hawkeyes played dominate soccer throughout the match, outshooting Michigan State 22-11. Eight of Iowa’s 22 shots were on goal, and they also had a slim 5-4 advantage in corner kicks.

Junior Hannah Clark also had a career day for the Hawks, making 5 saves. The shutout, No. 16 for her career, is now the school record for career shutouts.

Iowa does not have to leave the state for their next match, a Oct. 5 showdown with Michigan.

The Maize and Blue sit at 4-1 in conference play and are coming off a season that saw them advance to the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

Play will begin at 1 p.m. at the U-M Soccer Stadium in Ann Arbor.
