IU soccer vs. San Diego State

Indiana’s attempt to go 4-0 for the first time since 2004 falls short as the Hoosiers settle for a draw despite a 28-8 edge in shots and 19-2 edge in corner kicks. Late chance for IU as Kotlov got to end line and centered to Zavaleta, who had the ball tackled away with under a minute left. Frustrating result, but a dominating performance for the Hoosiers. HOOSIERS 0, AZTECS 0

IU didn’t seem to have the edge during those first 10 minutes, only one shot attempt. Only 10 minutes left to pull out a win, and San Diego State seems rather content to pull out a draw right now. HOOSIERS 0, AZTECS 0

We’re going to golden goal overtime despite a 25-8 edge in shots for Indiana and a whopping 19-2 edge in corner kicks. San Diego State has been a bunker over the final 30 minutes. It would be bitterly disappointing for IU not to get a win here after this domination and even worse if it were to become a loss. HOOSIERS 0, AZTECS 0

12:00: The skies lightened and the rain stopped for a while, but it’s back now. Meanwhile, Indiana continues to pour the ball into the San Diego State box to the tune of 21 shots and 16 corner kicks. Problem is SDSU is just dangerous enough to steal this game yet. HOOSIERS 0, AZTECS 0

28:00: After a shaky start that allowed San Diego State a couple dangerous chances, Indiana has regained control a bit here, putting a lot of dangerous runs and passes into the box. Moments ago, Andrew Oliver fed Femi Hollinger-Janzen in front with a centering pass that the SDSU keeper broke up to save the goal, but he was injured on the play and a new keeper is in as IU continues to press the attack.

Still scoreless as we hit the break here at Armstrong, but this game has been more open than the score suggests. Despite the conditions, both keepers have played well, with San Diego State’s Blake Hylen the more busy of the two with six saves while defending seven corner kicks. Luis Soffner with two saves for Indiana, which allowed just one corner kick.

Kyle Sparks nearly had IU in front with a shot to the near post from the edge of the box on the right side, but Hylen, who was looking for the cross, recovered in time to punch the ball wide. Overall, Indiana outshot San Diego State, 12-5. Aztecs did a great job defending Eriq Zavaleta, who couldn’t hardly get a touch on the ball in the middle of the field.

Field conditions are still good, but you can see some rooster tails on passes in the middle and a few splashes of water on some of the crosses and long balls, so things are starting to deteriorate. HOOSIERS 0, AZTECS 0

26:21: Both teams with some chances early on, though the better of those have gone to Indiana. Freshman Andrew Oliver has been involved early, including a 1-v-1 he hit right at the keeper. IU has also had three corner kicks. Aztecs are dangerous, though, and you can see why they played a 3-2 game against Notre Dame. So far, so good for the field conditions. HOOSIERS 0, AZTECS 0

It’s obviously a soggy track on Jerry Yeagley Field at Bill Armstrong Stadium this Sunday afternoon, so we’ll see how that plays out as No. 10 Indiana looks to improve to 4-0 on the season. The field is in great condition despite the rain, but the slick grass and a slick ball could make possession difficult to sustain and certainly opens the possibility of a defensive miscue.

The Aztecs are coming off a 3-2 loss to Notre Dame Friday night and feature two former Hoosiers — Blake Wise and Kevin Bick — on the roster. Updates here and on Twitter.
