Bloomington, Ind. -
Indiana dominated Tulsa, 5-1, in the NCAA Men's Soccer Championship second round on Sunday night at Armstrong Stadium in Bloomington, Ind. The Golden Hurricane concluded the season with a 12-7-2 overall record, while the Hoosiers moved to 10-7-2 on the season.
"We just weren't good enough defensively tonight," Head Coach Tom McIntosh said. "When we were down 3-1, we really felt like we could get two more back because we were creating chances and putting ourselves in position to score, but we gave up another goal. It is something to learn from and move forward. There isn't one person in the lockerroom, coaches or players, that didn't learn something from it and that is what it is about."
Andy Adlard put the Hoosiers on the board in the 41st minute off a pass from Nikita Kotlov, and then Kotlov scored four minutes later on a rebounded shot attempt from Will Bruin to put Indiana up 2-0 at the break. Harrison Petts added a goal for IU in the 52nd minute with Bruin earning the assist.
Ashley McInnes knocked one in for TU at the 52:47 mark as he chipped the ball over Indiana keeper Luis Soffner.
Bruin scored two more for the Hoosiers in the 73rd and 79th minutes for the final 5-1 score.
Indiana had a 25-14 advantage in shots, including a 20-7 lead in shots on goal, while both teams had five corner kicks.
McInnes had a team-best four shots, three of which were on goal, while Hunter Christiansen added three attempts and Corey Albertson had two shots. Ray Clark logged all 90 minutes in goal and recorded 14 saves in the contest.
This marked the seventh appearance for Tulsa in the NCAA Tournament and sixth time that TU advanced to at least the second round. The Golden Hurricane has a 7-7-1 mark in NCAA Tournament play.
