Hoosiers instrumental in Indy Eleven opener

By   |   Saturday, Apr. 12, 2014 - 11:38 PM   |   No comments

Coached by former IU standout Juergen Sommer, the Indy Eleven used significant contributions from former Hoosiers to earn a 1-1 draw with the Carolina Railhawks in the franchise opener Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd of 11,048 at IUPUI’s Michael A. Carroll Stadium.

In the 43rd minute, former Hoosier Mike Ambersley made history with the first goal. A penetrating run by midfielder Corby Moore was snuffed out, but IU grad A.J. Corrado picked up the loose ball and played it into the box, where a waiting Ambersley took a touch past a defender and slotted a shot inside the far post for a 1-0 lead. It capped a memorable week for Ambersley, who celebrated the birth of his first child just a few days ago.

Another former Indiana standout, Brad Ring, did his part to preserve the lead with a sliding tackle inside the six with time winding down in the half. IU alum Chris Estridge was also in the starting lineup.

Carolina tied the game early in the second half. A trio of second-half substitutions, including former Hoosier Dylan Mares, gave the Eleven some late life that had the capacity crowd on its feet. But despite the surge in the final 10 minutes, Indy was forced to settle for the season-opening tie.
