LEWISBURG, Pa. - The No. 12 Indiana University Hoosiers (18-11, 3-2 CWPA West) women's water polo team fell to No. 14 Hartwick College, 8-5, to round out the divisional slate at the Bison Invitational. Hartwick reeled off four unanswered goals during the second period to force the Hoosiers to play catch-up for the duration of the contest.

"We gave up some goals in the second quarter that really put us in a hole," said Indiana head coach Barry King. "We struggled shooting the ball for the majority of the contest and that was a key factor as well."

Jakie Köhli registered two goals to lead the Indiana offensive attack. The trio of Kara Butler, Shae Fournier and Lauren Wyckoff posted one goal apiece in the loss.

Cassie Wyckoff blocked 11 shots in the cage and had one steal during 32 minutes of action. Wyckoff has recorded double-figure saves in three of the Hoosiers' four games in Pennsylvania this weekend.

Hartwick scored the game's first goal at the 5:37 mark, but the Hoosiers responded with two straight scores to take a 2-1 lead into the second quarter.

The Hawks notched four consecutive goals during the second period in a stretch that proved costly for the Cream and Crimson.

Indiana outscored Hartwick 2-1 in the third period, but the Hawks lead was too much to overcome.

The Hawks added two fourth quarter goals compared to one for the Hoosiers.
