Cal at IU soccer: Game updates

FINAL
No. 5 Indiana’s second-half surge was enough to improve to 3-0 on the season with a win over No. 22 California. Goal and an assist for Rashad Hyacenth, goal by Trevor Swartz and an assist by Tanner Thompson, while Colin Webb made 2 saves in goal. Hoosiers had to survive one last Cal shot with 15 seconds left that appeared to hit the outside of the left post. Indiana next faces Stanford on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. HOOSIERS 2, GOLDEN BEARS 1

SECOND HALF
79th minute: The Belmont transfer Hyacenth follows up his first assist at Indiana with his first goal on a header to give IU the lead off an assist from Tanner Thompson, as the dam seems to have broken for the home team. HOOSIERS 2, GOLDEN BEARS 1

75th minute: Indiana spent the entire second half knocking on the door, racking up a 10-1 advantage in shots before finally finding the equalizer. A cross sent in was headed down by Rashad Hyacenth, with the deflection falling at the feet of sophomore Trevor Swartz, who drilled a shot past the goalkeeper to tie things up. HOOSIERS 1, GOLDEN BEARS 1

HALFTIME
A half largely dominated by Indiana sees California head to the break with a lead on a fortunate bounce. Bears’ corner kick was headed out by Grant Lillard and collected by Nick Lima, who took a few dribbles and launched an optimistic effort from 30 yards that got a piece of an IU defender and caromed in the right side of the net for the lead just 1:17 before the half. Overall, Indiana holds a 9-7 lead in shots, although it’s 3 apiece in shots on goal, and the Hoosiers are up 7-2 on corner kicks. GOLDEN BEARS 1, HOOSIERS 0

19th minute: Still no score midway through the first half, where the first 20 minutes were all Hoosiers, who racked up a 6-0 advantage in shots with three corner kicks, but the three shots on goal were all right at Cal keeper Jonathan Klinsmann, the son of US national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann. Cal has had the better of play the last few minutes, picking up its first shot attempts and corner kick, requiring just one save of Colin Webb, who parried away a line-drive blast from 20 yards out. HOOSIERS 0, GOLDEN BEARS 0

PREGAME
After starting the season 2-0 with wins over New Mexico and Cal-Irvine last weekend at the Mike Berticelli Memorial Tournament in South Bend, the Indiana men’s soccer team takes on California in tonight’s home opener at Armstrong Stadium. The Hoosiers are up to No. 5 in this week’s polls, but will be challenged by the No. 22 Golden Bears and on Sunday night at 7:30, No. 15 and defending national champion Stanford. Friday’s opening game between Notre Dame and Stanford ended with the Irish scoring a free kick from 30 yards out in the second overtime for a 2-1 victory.

The Hoosiers are starting in a 4-4-2 with goalkeeper Colin Webb; defenders Grant Lillard, Derek Creviston, Andrew Gutman and Billy McConnell; midfielders Jeremiah Gutjahr, Tanner Thompson, Francesco Moore and Phil Fives; forwards Richard Ballard and Rashad Hyacenth.
