NMU men’s soccer team beats Indiana University
The Northern Michigan University men’s soccer team has finally found its stride, after a disappointing road trip.

Northern has one more regular-season game remaining, and will play Wisconsin-Parkside on Thursday. It has won nine of its past 10 games and sits eighth in the GLIAC.
The victory was a testament to the Wolverines’ strong defense and goalkeeper Hayden Evans’ excellent play. Evans made seven saves against an Indiana offense to earn his fourth win of the season. In the first half, the Michigan Wolverines had two legitimate scoring opportunities. A Kevin Buca turnover deep in the Indiana offensive third led to a one-two with Inaki Rodriguez. Later in the half, senior Marc Ybarra had a penalty kick opportunity that fell just wide of the goal, but the keeper saved it because of Indiana’s defender, Roman Celentano.
The scoreboard was tipped at halftime, but it wasn’t enough to determine the winner. The game will now be decided in overtime. The final score will probably come down to the game’s first goal. The final score will be announced on Tuesday. Marshall’s goalkeeper Dylan Bastin made three saves and gave Trine a 3-0 lead. Neither team can afford to give up, though, and they will now play Albion on Tuesday, Oct. 8.
Indiana University has a history of dominating the series, and this record is still very impressive. The Hoosiers have won 11 Big Ten tournament titles, and eight of their fourteen regular season titles. Since 1991, they’ve produced 13 players for the United States men’s national team, six Olympians, and six World Cup participants. The Hoosiers have dominated the league for so long that they have earned 52 All-America honors.
