EVANSVILLE, Ind. – The University of Southern Indiana women's soccer team scored first but could not hold onto the lead, falling to Rockhurst University, 2-1, Sunday afternoon at Strassweg Field. USI falls to 1-5-0 overall and 1-3-0 in the GLVC, while Rockhurst goes to 3-2-1 overall, 2-0-0 GLVC.
USI junior midfielder Katie Grossman (Evansville, Indiana) scored her second unassisted goal of the year to give the Screaming Eagles a 1-0 lead at the 55:30 mark. Grossman dribble through a pair of Hawk defenders before putting the ball into the back of the net.
Rockhurst responded three minutes later at 58:35 when sophomore midfielder Sarah Anderson tied the score, 1-1, on a corner kick from sophomore midfielder Katie Vogt.
The Hawks would score the game winner off another corner kick at 63:11. Freshman forward Amy Lindley scored off a pass from Anderson, who received the ball on the corner kick by junior forward Lindsey Ewert.
