"Overall, we played well," Indiana head coach Mick Lyon said. "We never gave up on it and were always there to get a second goal but just couldn't find it. We will be a better team for having played this very physical game."
The Bulls finished the contest with 11 shots on goal to eight for the Hoosiers but the IU attack produced 12 corner kicks while the Hoosier defense surrendered just six. And to support Lyon's claim of a physical game, there were 15 fouls called on USF to eight for the Hoosiers.
Senior goalkeeper Lindsay Campbell was steady for the Hoosiers in goal, making a career-high nine saves and allowing the two goals. However, those goals came after a couple defensive miscues in front of her left her at a disadvantage.
"Campbell had a tremendous game," Lyon said. "We forced them to shoot from 35 yards but the few times they got in, Campbell was there to turn them away."
The Hoosiers had a couple of opportunities to even the score in the second half, including one from point-blank range. But the USF keeper was able to pop back up to her feet and quickly deflect the shot attempt wide of the goal and keep the Hoosiers at bay.
Indiana will now return home to take on the Oakland Grizzlies on Sunday (Aug. 28) with the kickoff scheduled for 1:00 p.m. ET at Armstrong Stadium. Fans are encouraged to wear their favorite international soccer jersey to receive a free prize.
