Indiana wins play-in game against Wagner to make NCAA Finals field

  Indiana is now 10-0 all-time against Wagner.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- No. 8 Indiana defeated ninth-seed Wagner College 11-6 on Saturday to advance to the NCAA Finals. Four goals from Shae Fournier and three from Rebecca Gerrity spurred the Hoosiers' offense to lead the team to their third NCAA appearance in school history.

Rebecca Gerrity started the Hoosiers off right with a goal to the corner in front of Indiana's home crowd.

Wagner quickly went on the offensive attack, taking a 5-2 shot advantage. Goalkeeper Jessica Gaudreault was able to keep the Seahawks off the board till halfway through the first, raking up three quick saves, nine over-all.

Wagner was able to muscle their way in the middle and dodge Gaudreault's outstretched arms to tie the score at 1-1 before a skip-shot from Fournier put Indiana back on top, ending the first quarter with a 2-1 Hoosier lead.

Shelby Taylor got the ball to Ellie Stott who netted the ball to open the second quarter. Wagner was able to score two more balls in the second, but an offensive spurt from Gerrity, Fournier, and Colleen McNaught gave Indiana a halftime lead of 6-4.

The Hoosiers never looked back. Fournier, Indiana's all-time leading scorer netted two more goals off penalty shots while picking up three steals. Gerrity added a third goal, Colleen McNaught scored twice, and Meghan Lappan added the final tally for Indiana.
