IU men’s soccer fell short of its ninth national title Monday, losing 1-0 to Marshall University in the NCAA men’s National Championship.

The victory came off the back of a goal from senior forward Jamil Roberts in the 98th minute.

Marshall’s senior midfielder Vitor Dias took a shot that sophomore goalkeeper Roman Celentano saved onto the crossbar. The ball fell to Roberts’ feet, who put it in the net.

IU was outshot by Marshall 16-8, including 8-1 in shots on goal.

Monday’s game was the first time IU had made the final since 2017, and the third time it has reached the College Cup in four years.
