When the IU men's soccer team faced Georgetown in the finals of the College Cup Dec. 9, they had to face more than just the players on the field, fans said, as Hoosier came from around the country to turn Hoover, Ala. into "Bill Armstrong South."
Growing up with the program would have been a dream for many young soccer fans in the state of Indiana. IU Coach Todd Yeagley lived that dream. As soccer took its first steps in a basketball state, so too did the soccer program in Bloomington.
The first half came with plenty of drama as any College Cup would be expected to. Indiana maintained the offensive pressure throughout the majority of the half.
Jacob Bushue dribbles his way into the 18-yard box in the second half against Akron. Bushue found No. 2 Eriq Zavaleta for an attempted shot, but the shot flew high. The Hoosiers lost the game 1-0 and ended their undefeated streak thus far this season.
