IU soccer ousted, other notes

The second verse was the same as the first for the Indiana soccer team Wednesday when the Hoosiers lost to Michigan State for the second time in the last 10 days.

The Spartans’ 2-1 victory, coming on the heels of a 3-1 decision in the regular season, knocked IU (11-5-3) out in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament, the earliest exit in Indiana history.

Michigan State scored in the fourth minute, added another in the 77th minute and weathered a Hoosier comeback despite being outshot 10-1 in the second half. Now an Indiana team that once looked like a lock for a top seed in the NCAA Tournament will have to wait until Monday to find out its postseason fate after finishing 1-3-1 in the final five games of the season.

All-American recruit
Sean Cowdrey, a 2013 IU commit from DeMatha (Md.), was named to the high school All-American team this week, following in the footsteps of Femi Hollinger-Janzen, who earned the same honor a year ago.

Swartz coming in 2014
Indiana also landed a commitment from defender/midfielder Trevor Swartz of Ponderosa High School (Calif.) for its 2014 recruiting class. Swartz is part of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy.

This is a tough one to swallow.

Always felt like Freitag got the screwed and that hiring Yeags Jr was a reaction. We’re reaping what we sow.

1-3-1….I’ve never seen numbers like those emanate from Bill Armstrong Stadium.
