IPFW booted 32 total shots and got a season-high three goals in a women's soccer victory over Goshen College on Thursday.
Danielle Bishop played exceptionally well for the Mastodons (4-4), as she put up 10 shots, scoried a goal and dished out an assist.
Also contributing to the win were freshmen Erin Gill and Rachel Good, who each also found the back of the net.
IPFW has outscored its opponents 8-6 on the year.
The Mastodons worked quickly, putting up their first shot just 14 seconds into the game, and scored the eventual game-winner less than 15 minutes later when Tessa Edwards put a pass through the box that Gill put into the net.
IPFW, despite having just one goal in the first half, amassed 16 shots, six on goal, and had three corner kicks.
The second half started slowly for the Mastodons, until Bishop scored her second goal of the season when she put in her own rebound, beating the Goshen keeper and pushing IPFW's lead to 2-0 with 68:25 on the clock.
Eighteen minutes later Bishop got an assist on a saved shot attempt that Good picked up and put into the back of the net with 3:37 remaining. It was Bishop’s first assist of the season and Good’s first collegiate goal. IPFW got off a shot attempt and a corner kick in the final three and a half minutes, but neither led to a goal and the Dons closed out their 3-0 win.
The shutout was the second in the last three games for the Mastodons and freshman goalkeeper Sam Pavlika, whose season goals-against average dropped to 0.73, picking up three saves overall.
The Mastodons return to action Monday when they host Wright State in a game that was originally scheduled for Sept. 7 but was canceled 10 minutes into game because of lightning.
