BENSENVILLE, IL - The Illinois Tech Women's Soccer team outplayed No.22 Robert Morris for much of the game on Saturday but was left on the wrong end of a controversial 3-1 decision.  

The Scarlet Hawks jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the 7th minute when senior midfielder Lauren Wissman headed home a great set piece from freshman Hailey Kunkel.

Robert Morris evened the score in the 31st minute on a glancing header by Tavia Anderson on a corner kick. It was a back and forth defensive affair for the rest of the first half as both teams were limited to just 2 shots.

Controversy reigned during a ten-minute segment of the second half. In the 58th minute, Illinois Tech forward Marit Tundal was clearly taken down in the box on a break-away. The Robert Morris defender was shown a red card and the Scarlet Hawks were readying for a penalty shot. Inexplicably, the official changed the call to a yellow card and moved the ball out of the box for a Scarlet Hawks set piece.

Instead of being up a player and most likely up a goal on the resulting penalty, the Scarlet Hawks and all that were in attendance were left stunned. To rub salt into the wound, Robert Morris was awarded a soft penalty in the 69th minute.

Robert Morris converted the spot kick to make the score 2-1.

The Scarlet Hawks were left to press the game and would concede a late goal to finish the scoring at 3-1.

Amy Arnhart made four saves in goal for the Scarlet Hawks. Robert Morris held a slight 10-8 edge in shots for the game.

The Scarlet Hawks complete a great season and have reason to look forward to next year with 7 starters and several prominent reserves returning. Here's a few of the achievements from this season:

 

- School record five game conference unbeaten streak (4 wins, 1 draw)

- Defeated No. 20 Robert Morris 1-0 in regular season

- Defeated conference rival Saint Xavier for the first time in the history of IIT women's soccer

- Finished with 5 wins and 1 draw in CCAC play; 5th place finish behind four Top 25 teams

 

Illinois Tech seniors Sam Cosenza, Noel Deis, Grace Durbin, Kay Durbin, Emily Tilton and Lauren Wissman have all had a lasting impact on the soccer program and university.
