Wisconsin at IU soccer in B1G quarters

FINAL
A much less offensive second half for Indiana, but Hoosiers march on to the Big Ten semifinals and a date with Maryland on Friday. That game will be in Columbus if Ohio State wins this afternoon, here at Armstrong Stadium if the Buckeyes lose. Final tallies show Indiana with a 20-4 edge in shots, 3-2 in corners. IU keeper Colin Webb made his only save on a free kick with a minute left in regulation. HOOSIERS 1, BADGERS 0

HALFTIME
Another dominating frame for Indiana, which finished the half with a 15-3 advantage in shots, forcing five saves by the Wisconsin goalkeeper. Hoosiers still need to find another finish or two to put this one away, but Badgers’ biggest threat will be via restarts. Otherwise, they’re not seeing a whole lot of the ball. HOOSIERS 1, BADGERS 0

FIRST HALF
23:42: Indiana had been on the front foot throughout, and finally cashes in courtesy of Femi Hollinger-Janzen’s team-leading eighth goal of the season. Hollinger-Janzen got the ball on the right flank, dribbled around the defender, then fought off the challenge to toepoke the ball past the keeper from a tight angle. Hoosiers now a 7-1 lead in shots. HOOSIERS 1, BADGERS 0

PREGAME
The postseason starts today for the Indiana men’s soccer team, with the second-seeded Hoosiers hosting seventh-seeded Wisconsin in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament. The winner advances to next Friday’s semifinals, which will be at the site of the highest remaining seed.

This game is a rematch of the regular-season meeting on Halloween, won by IU, 1-0. For the Badgers, coached by former Hoosier John Trask, winning the Big Ten Tournament is the only path to the NCAA Tournament. For the Hoosiers, the more they win in the Big Ten, the better their chances at a top 16 seed in the NCAA. Updates here and more via Twitter. Game is being broadcast on BTN Plus.
