IU men's soccer will be without one of its leading goalscorers for up to a month after freshman forward Tommy Thompson underwent knee surgery today.

The Loomis, Calif., native, who is tied for the team lead with five goals scored this season, underwent the procedure to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee. Thompson suffered the injury during IU's 2-0 loss to Wisconsin last Friday night, IU Coach Todd Yeagley said.

"Tommy's been so good all year," Yeagley said. "I think we're just starting to find him and what he likes to do because he's so different than Eriq (Zavaleta, who scored 18 goals for the Hoosiers last season). They're so good in different ways, and the team just started to get that.

"It's very untimely, kind of like the season as a whole. Very untimely moments"
