IU Advances to 19th College Cup in Philadelphia!

The Indiana University men’s soccer team defeated Michigan State on penalty kicks (3-2) to advance to the Hoosiers’ NCAA record 19th College Cup.  You can see the official NCAA College Cup bracket here.  Indiana will face the winner of North Carolina and Fordham.

Things got off to an ominous start, as the Spartans scored on a header within the first 2 minutes of the match.  The Hoosiers trailed until the 60th minute when Trevor Swartz managed to score directly on a corner kick.

The match stayed at 1-1 through two overtimes and went to penalty kicks.  Indiana goalkeeper Trey Muse stopped 2 out of the first 4 attempts, while Indiana’s first 3 shootout attempts were made by Francesco Moore, Rece Buckmaster and Austin Panchot, respectively.  That set up Michigan State’s last attempt which Muse stopped to send the Hoosiers to Philadelphia.
