Men’s Soccer On Wrong End Of Wild Finish Against Indianapolis

The University of Illinois Springfield men’s soccer team was on the wrong end of a wild finish on Sunday afternoon at Kiwanis Stadium, where Indianapolis defeated the Prairie Stars by a 2-1 margin.

Neither team scored for the first 84 minutes of the game, a stretch that was broken when Indianapolis scored off a corner kick in the 85th minute. Just over four minutes later, UIS knotted the game when Drew Keller headed in a pass from Rory Carlson with just 91 seconds remaining. The Prairie Stars celebration was short lived though. Indianapolis drew a foul on the restart. On the set point, an Indianapolis player scored the game-winner just 27 seconds after the UIS goal.

Indianapolis had 10 shots and four shots on goal in the game, compared to nine shots and six shots on goal for the Prairie Stars. Pijus Petkevicius made two saves in goal for the Prairie Stars, while Indianapolis’ goalie had five stops.

UIS falls to 5-5-2 on the year, and 3-4-2 in GLVC play. The Prairie Stars are in action again next Friday at Southern Indiana.
