The Gophers women's soccer team stunned previously unbeaten and unscored upon Indiana 3-0 on Thursday night at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium.

Minnesota (4-4-1, 1-1 Big Ten) scored all its goals in a 10-minute stretch. Gabbie Cesarone got the first goal on a header in the 67th minute. Izzy Brown and Christa Van Loon got the other goals. Keeper Megan Plaschko made two saves for the shutout. The Hoosiers (2-1-6, 0-1-1) were outshot 10-2, and shots on goal were 5-2 in the Gophers' favor.

"It's our Big Ten home opener, we were excited for the match," Gophers coach Erin Chastain said. "Happy with the way the team started the second half, we felt like we had a lot of momentum and wanted to build on that.

"The team stepped up, it was a complete effort from a lot of players. That's going to be important going forward. I'm really proud of our group, it's been a tough start for us and I thought we generated some nice chances. Certainly, three goals and a shutout is a great Big Ten win."
