Men’s Soccer Drops Third Straight With 1-0 Loss To No. 6 Indiana

Penn State (4-6-1, 2-3 Big Ten) traveled to Bloomington for a showdown with the Hoosiers. No. 6 Indiana (7-1-4, 2-0-3) was hoping to rebound from a 4-0 loss to No. 2 Notre Dame, while the Nittany Lions were trying to halt their two-game skid. The Hoosiers prevailed 1-0 Saturday night.

How It Happened

The Hoosiers started the game off with a couple of opportunities. Phil Fives nearly gave Indiana the lead, but hit the post with his shot in the third minute. Evan Finney made his first stop of the game just a few minutes later.

The Nittany Lions held their own for much of the first half with one of the top teams in the country, but went behind in the 36th minute. Trevor Swartz assisted on Cory Thomas’ first goal of the season, a near post finish from five yards out.

Indiana went into the half ahead 1-0, but Penn State had opportunities with another 45 minutes left on the clock.

Different chances came Penn State’s way, including shots from Pierre Reedy and Dayonn Harris that forced Indiana keeper Colin Webb to make saves. Penn State didn’t have enough to get the equalizer and couldn’t register a shot in the last 18 minutes of the game as they fell to the Hoosiers 1-0.
