Creighton makes case as Midwest's best

Creighton just may have the best men's team in the Midwest this season.

The Bluejays knocked off No. 3 Indiana on Thursday night, 2-1, at the Saint Louis/Nike Classic.

Tim Walters, son of the former Indiana star of the same name, scored the deciding goal while playing in his home town, as the Bluejays (3-0-2) dominated the match at Hermann Stadium.

"I'm really, really proud of how this team has continued to come together," said head coach Bob Warming after his 350th career win. "We are such a young team and for us to continue to get better and play this well without Byron Dacy [out with an injured knee] and losing as many guys to the pros as we did from last year, is just a great sign for this team."

Creighton outshot Indiana, 17-7, and held the Hoosiers to just one shot on goal.

"At halftime I challenged our wide players to be more involved with the attack," said Warming.  "I thought those guys were spending too much time defending in the first half, and to his credit, Tim Bohnenkamp accepted that challenge and scored a beautiful goal to get us started."

Bohnenkamp and Walters scored in the second half to put Creighton ahead, 2-0, before IU responded with a penalty kick by Eric Alexander.

"We gave the game away," said Indiana coach Mike Freitag. "And what I mean by that is Creighton took the game from us. I take nothing away from them; they were outstanding. But we didn't do things the way we were supposed to."

To make matters worse for IU, Ofori Sarkodie, its Soccer America Preseason All-American, was sent off in the 74th minute and will miss Saturday's match against host Saint Louis.

Junior transfer Brandon Barklage scored his first goal as a Billiken in the 89th minute to push Saint Louis past Loyola Marymount, 1-0, to complete the first day of action at the at the Saint Louis/Nike Classic.
