[MEN'S TOP 25 ACTION] Notre Dame fans certainly can't say they haven't gotten their money's worth this season.

Four days after the Irish drew, 3-3, with Connecticut in a battle of the nation's No. 1 and No. 3 teams, Notre Dame fell to Indiana, 3-2, in a game that drew a crowd of 3,462 fans -- the third largest in its history -- in the driving rain.

Joseph Lapira, the 2006 Soccer America Player of the Year, scored two goals for the second straight match for Notre Dame, but it wasn't enough against Indiana, which got goals from Rich Balchan, Kevin Noschang and Neil Wilmarth.

Notre Dame had all kinds of chances late in the game. Dave Donohue could have put the Irish ahead shortly before Wilmarth's goal, but his header was cleared off the line by a Hoosier defender.

Indiana’s Chay Cain stopped late chances by Alex Yoshinaga and Kurt Martin.

“I thought we really controlled the game in the first 15 minutes of play,” said Notre Dame coach Bobby Clark. “After that, we kind of lost our grip on the game and never found our rhythm. We had several good chances. It was a very entertaining game in front of a great crowd.”
