Gauchos at Hoosiers

1 comment by   |   Saturday, September 27, 2008 - 7:15 pm EDT

Beautiful night to play — and watch — soccer at Armstrong Stadium. The tenth-ranked Hoosiers are looking to make it four wins in a row tonight against Cal-Santa Barbara. The Gauchos started the season at No. 10 but have fallen out of the poll in recent weeks. There’s a chance we could see an offensive shootout here as both teams have been finding the net lately. We’ll see which way the ball bounces. Kick off is scheduled for 7:30.

45:00, FIRST HALF

Hoosiers decked out in the all red uniforms for tonight’s game, while the Gauchos will wear white jerseys with UCSB written across the front and blue shorts. It’s youth soccer night, so that means a young, enthusiastic crowd for IU as long as their attention span lasts. No changes in the starting lineup for Indiana — if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Be back with updates as events warrant.

33:00, first half: Gauchos have a noticeable size advantage with multiple players 6-foot and over. And it pays off on a corner kick as UCSB heads home the game’s first goal on their first shot. Gauchos 1, Hoosiers 0

26:01, first half: Indiana has had several good looks so far with a couple of free kicks, then some real threats from Will Bruin and Daniel Kelly, but nothing to show for the 5-1 advantage in shots. Gauchos 1, Hoosiers 0

18:40, first half: Neil Wilmarth and Lee Hagedorn set to come off the Indiana bench. IU could use an infusion of energy and intensity right now. Gauchos 1, Hoosiers 0

HALFTIME

With 12 seconds left in the first half, the Gauchos strike again. Another header, this time for MAC Hermann Trophy candidate Chris Pontius. UCSB is dominating this game with their physicality. Indiana will need to step it up in the second half if they want to get back in this one. Gauchos 2, Hoosiers 0

39:30, second half: Tommy Meyer out of the lineup to start the half with Hagedorn in his place. Hoosiers have already had several near-misses on a couple Bruin headers and a John Melencamp miss from point-blank range. Gauchos 2, Hoosiers 0

24:15, second half: Wilmarth and Brian Ackley are into the game for IU. Hoosiers have had a relentless attack in the second half, but still can’t crack the UCSB defense. Gauchos 2, Hoosiers 0

16:30, second half: This game has steadily gotten very chippy and that was capped with a red card on UCSB’s David Walker after he put a cleat in Kevin Alston’s head after a hard collison. The Gaucho coaches are furious and Pontius has gotten in a jawing match with IU’s Ofori Sarkodie. Indiana seems to be absorbing hard foul after hard foul. Gauchos 2, Hoosiers 0

2:10, second half: After missing chances left, right and over, Indiana gets on the board as Andy Adlard slides in to put the ball in the net as UCSB has been packing it in for 10 minutes now. Gauchos 2, Hoosiers 1

FINAL

It looked like a hand ball with 20 seconds left in the box, but no call and after a near-miss from Eric Alexander, UCSB survives a furious rally. Gauchos 2, Hoosiers 1
