No. 1 seeded Minnesota earned a 3-1 win against Indiana in the quarterfinals of the 2016 Big Ten Women's Soccer Tournament on Sunday afternoon at the Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium. Minnesota improved to 14-3-3 on the 2016 season, and with the win the Gophers have qualified to host the rest of the tournament on their home field.

"We knew this was going to be a tough game," head coach Stefanie Golan said. "To score in the first few minutes was crucial for us, but we had to battle for 90-minutes to come out with the result. All year we've taken it one game at a time, one day at a time and that's what we'll continue to do."

Minnesota led all aspects of the game over Indiana including: shots (15-11), shots on goal (5-4) and corner kick opportunities (6-5). Josee Stiever and Sydney Squires both had a goal and an assist on the day.

In minute three of the match, junior Julianna Gernes found the back of the net off a ball from Molly Fiedler to get Minnesota on the scoreboard early.

Josee Stiever scored in the 36th minute to give the Gophers a 2-0 lead heading into the half. Sydney Squires was credited the assist.

Indiana's Mykayla Brown scored in the 80th minute of the match to move the game to 2-1, Minnesota.

Just three minutes later, Squires answered with a goal off a ball from Stiever. It was her third goal in the past three games. 

The Gophers will face Michigan on Friday, Nov. 4 at 2 p.m. CT in the Big Ten Tournament Semifinals. The other semifinal game will feature Rutgers and Northwestern at 4:30 p.m. CT.

Tickets for the rest of the Big Ten Tournament will go on sale Monday, Oct. 31 at 9 a.m. CT at mygophersports.com.
