HOOSIERS LOSE TO YALE
Sept. 11, 1999
Providence, R.I.--The no. 3 ranked Hoosiers lost today 2-1 to the Yale Bulldogs at the Brown adidas Classic. The unranked the Bulldogs used their defense to win the game limiting the Hoosiers to just seven shots.
Only five teams claim a winning record over the Hoosiers, and Yale is one of them. This marks the second time these two teams have played and the second time Yale has defeated Indiana by a 2-1 score.
The game was a close battle for the first 45 minutes as either team could find the net. Yale held a 5-2 advantage on shots and 5-3 on corners at the half.
Things soon changed when the second period began. At 56:54, Ivy League Player of the Year Jac Gould skipped a pass directly to Phil Harris. Harris tipped his shot into the left side of the net for the early 1-0 lead.
IU knew they had to score. With a little over five minutes left in the game, the Hoosiers got the tying goal. Senior forward Aleksey Korol drove the ball 25 yards and ran threw two defenders. Korol hit a 14 yard shot that found the left side of the net to tie the game 1-1.
But the Hoosiers were not prepared for what came next. The Bulldogs quickly got pocession of the ball near their goal. Jay Alberts passed just outside the box to Gould. Gould hit an eight yard blast to claim the victory with just 1:40 left on the clock.
With the loss, IU falls to 1-2. This is the first year since 1992 the Hoosiers have opened the season 1-2.
The Hoosiers play Brown tomorrow to conclude the Brown adidas Classic.
