Hoosiers tie in 2 scoreless games


They looked like a splatter of ketchup with a small dab of mustard. A huddle of red jerseys, except for freshman goalkeeper Luis Soffner in yellow, gathered on the field before their second game of the night. Only 15 minutes divided Wednesday’s two matches for the IU men’s soccer team, which tied Cincinnati, 0-0, and returned to the field to tie IUPUI, also nil-nil.

The practice fields are barren. Nine players are gone. One assistant coach has been swapped for another. With three additions to the IU men’s soccer team, the Hoosiers are using the spring season to integrate a new starting lineup and a former player turned coach.

Confident Hoosiers ready to swat down Cardinals


Only five games remain before the Big Ten tournament, but the No. 22 Hoosiers aren’t about to look ahead. Coming off a 3-1 upset win against then-No. 9 Notre Dame, IU (7-4-2) wants to build off its victory going into the match against No. 14 Louisville (9-3-2) at 7:30 p.m. today. Sophomore forward Andy Adlard said a key component to the win was a good week of practice preceding the match. Leading up to the Notre Dame game, every Hoosier showed up motivated and prepared, Adlard said.

The bench players stood in their black warm-ups, some wearing red beanies, waiting for the game to end and for the celebration to begin. The Hoosiers (7-4-2) finally lived up to past legends and current expectations as they defeated No. 9 Notre Dame 3-1 on Thursday. Their first home victory since a 3-2 win against Big Ten foe Wisconsin on Sept. 21 and first upset of the year, Thursday’s match marked a turning point in the season. Brushing off an away defeat to Michigan State last week, the Hoosiers entered the match ready to start a winning streak. In a team meeting this week after practice, the players and coaches discussed their strengths and weaknesses. “It’s a game that shows the players have a feeling what’s it like to have to play a 90 minute game,” said IU coach Mike Freitag. “It’s a feeling we’ve had in other games, but now we can’t forget it.” One strength of the Hoosiers, depth, was forced into action in the game’s opening minutes. Sophomore defender Rich Balchan had his nose broken in a tussle in the sixth minute and left the game, Freitag said. Freshman Tommy Meyer took his place for the remaining minutes. In the 24th minute junior defender Kevin Alston rifled the ball from 25 yards out into the right corner for his second goal of the season. “It was a rush,” Alston said. “I didn’t really expect it. It felt great.” Three minutes later, senior forward Kevin Noschang hit the ball into the bottom left corner.
