Olivia Knispel scored for the second straight game and Alyssa Krause later added an insurance goal as the Huntington University women's soccer team toppled Indiana Wesleyan University, 2-0, for the first time in program history on Tuesday, Sept. 25.

The Foresters, 3-7 overall and 2-0 in the Crossroads League, scored both goals in the first 35 minutes, then held on as goalkeeper Caitlin Adams finished with six saves on the day.

Knispel notched the second goal of her collegiate career in the 20th minute on a 20-yard shot after receiving a pass from Courtney Baker. Krause got the insurance tally 15 minutes later when she punched in a header from the far post on a ball from Sam Cubic.

IWU, which had been averaging two goals per game, was held to seven shots and dropped to 4-4-1 overall, 1-1 in Crossroads League play.
