HOOSIERS DEFEAT OHIO STATE 2-1; Clinch #1 Seed for Big Ten Tournament
Oct. 24, 1999
Bloomington, Ind. -The Indiana University men's soccer team wrapped up the home portion of the 1999 season in fine fashion with a 2-1 win over Ohio State at Bill Armstrong Stadium.
With the win, the Hoosiers claim the number one seed for the Big Ten Men's Soccer Tournament to be held in East Lansing, Mich. IU improves it record to 13-2-0 and 5-0-0 in the Big Ten, while OSU drops to 10-5-0, and 3-2 in league action. The Hoosiers have now won 12 consecutive matches.
It was Parents' and IU Soccer Alumni Weekend, and they were not disappointed as the Hoosieres got on the board at 24:22 as B.J. Snow netted his first-ever Indiana goal, a blast from 17 yards right that found the upper left corner. Assisting on the play was Ryan Mack.
"Before the game, Yuri (Lavrinenko) said that B.J. was going to get his first goal today," says IU head coach Jerry Yeagley. "It couldn't have happen to a better guy. B.J. has worked hard his four years here at Indiana. The goal was one of those great combination goals, that was started in the middle by Ryan Mack. You can't diagram a goal any better than that."
At 27:20, Aleksey Korol gave IU a 2-0 lead with his Big Ten-leading 12th goal of the year. Matt Fundenberger and Lavrinenko assisted on the play.
OSU's Joshua Rathweg made it 2-1 at 69:51 with Brooks Humphreys assisted.
The Hoosiers have only allowed six goals in the last 12 matches, while outscoring teams 36 to six during the current 12-game winning streak.
