West Virginia at Indiana soccer


FINAL WEST VIRGINIA 5, INDIANA 4.  2 OT. Sublime Ryan Cain one-touch left-footer into the upper right corner from 18 yards out. Hoosiers devasted. Third straight overtime loss, all against the run of play.

END FIRST OVERTIME: Indiana 4, West Virginia 4. Hoosiers had by far the best chances, unlucky not to score. IU now has a 21-16 advantage in shots.

END REGULATION: INDIANA 4, WEST VIRGINIA 4

Full time elapses. On to sudden-death overtime period. 10 minutes of possible duration. And if two OT periods elapse without a score, it’s a tie.

7:04: INDIANA GOAL: Indiana 4, West Virginia 4. Wow. What a game. IU keeping up the pressure, and again Bushue goes endline from the left wing and, again, finds a teammate with a diagonal feed, this time Nikita Kotlov. A virtual replay of the Tanner Thompson goal. Kotlov’s 12-yard rocket shot was true.

16:16: WEST VIRGINIA GOAL: West Virginia 4, Indiana 3. Sucker-punch for IU  against the run of play as a failed Kerel Bradford clearance ends up fed back into the box, right into the gut of Andy Bevin, whose point-blank blast gave him his second goal of the night. Hoosiers had appeared to have really gained the momentum in overcoming a 3-1 deficit to tie.

18:21: INDIANA GOAL: Indiana 3, West Virginia 3. Great goal after a lot of applied pressure from Indiana. Dylan Mares fed Tanner Thompson, who notched his first career goal beautifully with a right0-footer into the upper left corner from 12 yards oiut.

31:14: INDIANA GOAL: West Virginia 3, Indiana 2. Captain to captain again for the Hoosiers. After a nice flurry from IU, Jacob Bushue corralled the ball and took it endline from the left side of the area and issued a hard diagonal cross through the box which Harrison Petts finished decisively with a strong left-footer from 12 yards out.

35:51: WEST VIRGINIA GOAL: West Virginia 3, Indiana 1. A bit of ill luck for the Hoosiers this time. West Virginia’s Jamie Merriman took a left footer from the 18 that looked like it was going wide, but it deflected in off Jay Williams and IU is now in extreme peril of a third straight loss.

Both teams came out with surges after halftime, earning a pair of corner-kicks apiece after the first half produced no corners for either side. IU back to its original starting lineup with the exception that Vollmer is still in for Mares.

HALFTIME: WEST VIRGINIA 2, INDIANA 1. Mountaineers have an 8-5 advantage in shots.

Gotta say that West Virginia’s 2-1 lead is justified. Mountaineers have had more of the play. Not really true of IU’s last two losses. Interesting that A.J. Corrado and Nikita Kotlov, two key midfielders during the Hoosiers’ national title run last year and for the past three seasons, and talented transfer Dylan Mares have spent most of this half on the bench after being replaced. It could be that Coach Yeagley wants to have fresher legs for the second half. IU is coming off a difficult 2-1 overtime loss Friday at UAB (when the Blazers were awarded a penalty kick that produced the equalizer with just 46 seconds remaining in regulation time.)

10:29: WEST VIRGINIA GOAL: West Virginia 2, Indiana 1. Phenomenal goal by Andy Bevin on a counter-attack. Running left-foot rocket shot beats Webb to the lower left.

12:39: INDIANA GOAL: Indiana 1, West Virginia 1. Indiana goal ties West Virginia 1-1 with 12:39 left in the half. Capt. to Capt. Harrison Petts free kick from 40 to a Jason Bushue header.

13:38: Johnston terrific sprawing catch of a Harrison Petts’ running blast on goal from 25 yards out. Shot was on goal. Indiana starting to look dangerous.

15:14: Mountaineer keeper Lee Johnston make a fine, reactive save to hard Tommy Thompson left-footer from about 15 yards out to the right of the box.

Hoosiers put in Femi Hollinger-Janzen, Jamie Vollmer and Tanner Thompson — three subs at once — in the wake of West Virginia’s goal. Kotlov, Corrado and Mares out. Indiana is coming off its first back-to-back losses since 2011 and Coach Yeagley wants to see more urgency, methinks.

29:06: WEST VIRGINIA GOAL: West Virginia 1, Indiana 0. Quality, curling shot by Majed Osman just inside the 18 to the far post off an Alex Ochoa assist at 29:06. The Mountaineers have dominated possession so far. Indiana didn’t get enough defensive pressure on Osman and freshman keeper Colin Webb really didn’t have much chance.

Indiana’s defending national champions, playing better than their 1-2 record would suggest, play another tough opponent tonight in 1-1-1 West Virginia. The Hoosiers are apparently without regular goalie Michael Soderlund, who is dealing with a hip pointer sustained in Friday’s overtime loss at Alabama-Birmingham. Consequently, freshman Colin Webb gets his first career starter between the pipes for the host Hoosiers.

The Mountaineers boast four starters from either England or New Zealand, including the very potent junior Andy Bevin from Napier, NZ.
