BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Villanova (6-11) fell to BIG 10 opponents Indiana (9-7) 4-0 Sunday afternoon in Bloomington. The game marked the Wildcats' final road contest of the season.
The Hoosiers four goals came in the first period of play. Morgan Fleetwood secured the first score of the game and assisted Amanda Bennison's goal. Fleetwood netted two more scores for Indiana, extending their lead on the scoreboard to 4-0 at the end of the period.
Villanova found their offensive intensity in the second half and shot 13 of their 16 shots during the second period of play.
