For the third straight time, Indiana and Maryland play to a draw. The late equalizer was a gut punch for the Hoosiers, who seemed to get far too defensive down the stretch. A bit unlucky not to have been up 2-0, however. Final tally is 16 shots for Indiana to Maryland’s 12, with Colin Webb making two saves. Both teams now 0-0-1 in Big Ten play, while Hoosiers are 3-0-2 overall heading to Michigan next week. HOOSIERS 1, TERPS 1

Maryland finally finds the equalizer with 3:02 remaining courtesy of Alex Crognale, who volleyed a shot into the ground that bounced over the head of goalkeeper Colin Webb and off his fingertips. Indiana with a 16-11 edge in shots, 8-5 edge in corner kicks, but even on the scoreboard. Off to golden goal overtime we go. HOOSIERS 1, TERPS 1

Maryland has seen much more of the ball in this second half, especially in the first 10-12 minutes. The Terps’ best chance was a blast from distance by Gordon Wild, but Colin Webb made the save. Meanwhile, IU looked destined to have a 2-0 lead when Timmy Mehl headed down a corner kick for Andrew Gutman, whose volley through traffic was on target but blocked off the line at the last moment in the 63rd minute.

Nothing else able to find the net on either side after the early Indiana goal, but the Hoosiers certainly carried play in that first half, the best chance to extend the lead coming in the 35th minute when Andrew Gutman got the give and go feed from Jeremiah Gutjahr, faked left, cut right and blasted a shot that was still rising as it cleared both keeper and crossbar. IU finishes with an 8-6 edge in shots, but Maryland had four corner kicks to Indiana’s three. Key factor in the second half may be the weather, with storms potentially on the way. Also worth noting Maryland has been playing without standout forward/midfielder Eryk Williamson, who was injured against South Florida on Monday. HOOSIERS 1, TERPS 0

Indiana out of the gates strong and cashes in moments after Andrew Gutman’s clean look from the left side of the box was blocked out for a corner by the keeper. The ensuing corner kick saw multiple shot attempts from Indiana, and a deflected shot by Andrew Gutman finally fell at the feet of Richard Ballard, who poked it home into the right side of the net for the lead and his second goal of the year. Give Gutman the assist. HOOSIERS 1, TERPS 0

Five days after Indiana hosted the defending national champions, it’s another huge game at Armstrong Stadium as the fourth-ranked Hoosiers host No. 5 Maryland in the Big Ten opener for both teams. The big news in this one is the absence of IU preseason All-American and MAC Hermann Trophy watch lister Grant Lillard, who received a red-card ejection after picking up two yellow cards against Stanford and is suspended for this match. In his place, redshirt sophomore Timmy Mehl will get his first career start, with the 6-foot-1 Manhattan Beach, Calif., native providing the Hoosiers the most size possible in replacing the 6-4 Lillard.

Maryland counters with another sizable and talented center back in 6-5 Alex Crognale and a redshirt senior goalkeeper in Cody Niedermeier that will challenge the Hoosier offense. Scoring updates here and more via Twitter. Game is on the Big Ten Network.
