Indiana men’s soccer hosts UC-Irvine


FINAL: INDIANA 1, CAL-IRVINE 1.

Indiana denied PK chance with 6:16 left in second overtime after Tommy Thompson taken down near the 6. Ast. ref’s flag up. Ref waved it off.

Hoosiers probably disappointed with the draw, but it still beats the results from their previous 3 OT games.

END FIRST OVERTIME: INDIANA 1, CAL-IRVINE 1.

2:30: Christopher Santana’s header went barely high for Irvine. Best chance of the period after IU had some early flurries.

END REGULATION: INDIANA 1, CAL-IRVINE 1.

0:05: Lester Hayes hits the near post with a shot just to the left of the box after a corner-kick created a shot and save just before the end of regulation. Hoosiers lucky to be alive. Overtime has not been kind to them so far this season, at 0-3.

5:00: Irvine has out-shot IU 12-4, which is a bit misleading, but not much. Still a 1-1 tie. Can see how the Anteaters beat Louisville and, year-in and year-out, are the kind of program that knocks off UCLA and other Western powers with some regularity. Very solid defensively.

19:55: Irvine’s Enrique Cardenas, who looks a superb player, makes a great volley touch and turn that sets up a Dennis Martinez left-footer that crosses the goalmouth, barely wide. Still 1-1

22:50: Irvine corner-kick creates a real flurry in the box, but an IU defender and goalie Soderlund come up with saves. First real Anteater threat since intermission, unless one counts Lester Hayes almost getting on the end of a goal kick that traversed the field a few minutes earlier. IU has had the better chances this half, especially Kotlov’s header off the crossbar at 48:40.

Indiana having a better run of play early in the second half, but it hasn’t paid off in a goal as yet. A couple of corner-kicks.

41:40: IU’s Nikita Kotlov flying header off an A.J. Corrado free-kick cross toward the far post goes hard off the crossbar, straight down but apparently not over the goal line. Still 1-1. Hoosiers were extremely unlucky not to have retaken the lead. Beautiful cross. Well-struck header, but Kotlov was unmarked and it was pretty astounding the ball didn’t go in. Very, very close. Camera had no definitive angle on it.

HALFTIME: INDIANA 1, CAL-IRVINE 1. Anteaters hold a 9-1 bulge in shots and had the bulk of possession, especially in the final 25 minutes of the half. Indiana’s attack has been thwarted by some stout Anteater defending but also by five offside flags from the far linesman so far this half. Some were legit. Only some. Tommy Thompson made the lone IU shot count, but the Hoosiers are probably fortunate to be even at this point. Irvine has a lot of skill.

9:48: CAL-IRVINE GOAL. Indiana 1, Cal-Irvine 1. A very strange goal. Mats Bjurman took a free kick from 40 yards out. Not struck particularly hard, not really bending. It bounced once and it looked like several guys might get a foot on it, but nobody did, and perhaps that threw keeper Michael Soderlund off. Somehow it ended up in the net. But it wasn’t an undeserved score in that the Anteaters had dominated possession in the latter stages of the half.

37:31: INDIANA GOAL. Indiana 1, Cal-Irvine 0. IU freshman Tommy Thompson notches his second career goal of the season. A.J. Corrado to fed Patrick Doody, who got the ball into the air for a Nikita Kotlov flick-header. It went to the feet of Thompson, who made no mistake from 10 yards out into the upper-right corner of the net. Pretty play all-around.

Hoosier goalie Michael Soderlund had kept the Anteaters off the board at 39:05 after a fine through-ball left Lester Hayes III with a 1-v-keeper break. Soderlund looked a bit late off his line, but then supplied a superb kick-save to stone Hayes.

PREGAME: UC-Irvine’s Anteaters invade Armstrong Stadium today off a terrific 1-0 win Friday over No. 6 Louisville. They held the Cardinals to four shots. Irvine is 3-1-1 overall while the Hoosiers are 2-3-0 after Friday’s 4-1 win over Cal-Bakersfield. IU is without veteran back Kerel Bradford, out today with an ankle injury, and has had some issues in the back third. Billy McConnell, the freshmen, gets the start in Bradford’s stead. Lester Hayes III is a 6-foot-5 striker for the Anteaters. Should be a good one today. We’ll have updates here and also via Twitter at htograham.
