UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The No. 15 Wake Forest field hockey team fell to Indiana, 1-0, on Friday afternoon in University Park, Pa.

Although the Demon Deacons held a 15-9 shot advantage and a 6-3 edge in corners, Indiana goalkeeper Katie Johnson made six saves to keep Wake Forest off the scoreboard. The Hoosiers' Sheridan Weiss scored the only goal of the game in the 59th minute.

Junior Jule Grashoff led the Deacs with five total shots, three of which were on goal. However, Johnson was there for the save on all three. Fellow junior Megan Anderson added four shots for Wake Forest.

The first half was a defensive battle, with neither team able to produce a goal. The Hoosiers held an 8-4 shot advantage over the Deacs. Isla Bint, making her first start of the season in goal for the Demon Deacons, stood tall with two first half saves. All four of Wake Forest's first half shots were on target and saved by Johnson. Despite the Demon Deacons holding an 11-1 shot advantage in the second half, the Hoosiers converted their one and only chance, with Weiss's goal breaking the tie with just over 10 minutes left to play. After Wake Forest failed to convert a few late corner opportunities, the Hoosiers emerged with the victory.

Up next, the Demon Deacons will stay in University Park, Pa. for a road matchup this Sunday, Sept. 3 at 12 p.m. against No. 7 Penn State.
