With the school record of 10,114 fans and Fox Soccer Channel broadcasting the game, the Gauchos dominated the #9 team in the country by winning 3-0.
Early on though, it was all Indiana. They had three shots in the first three minutes and a couple of times should of had a goal.
After the super slow start, the Gauchos got it going. In the 39th minute, Michael Tetteh got the ball on the wing and went to town. He juked out Indiana defender Ofori Sarkodie and crossed the ball to a wide open, i mean wide open, Danny Barrera who put it in the back of the net. GOOOAAAALLLLL!!!!!
Then they took no time getting on the board again when Michael Nonni put a ball up field for Machael David who juked out the Hoosier goalie for the 2-0 lead. GOOOOOAAAALLLLLL!!!!
Nonni, who assisted on the second goal, got his share of scoring when he received a cross from Barrera and put it in the netting. GOOOAAAALLLLL!!
This win was the second Fox Soccer Channel game win for the Gauchos and the second win this week over a top 25 opponent.
The Gauchos resume to action this Saturday when they take on arch rival Cal Poly at Harder Stadium at 7:00 p.m. Be there or be square!
