[SHINDIGZ NATIONAL SOCCER FESTIVAL] Indiana and Notre Dame both held their own against Chivas Guadalajara's traveling Segunda Division team at the Shindigz National Soccer Festival in Fort Wayne, Ind. The Hoosiers beat Chivas in a shootout Saturday after their game ended in a 1-1 tie, the same score of the Notre Dame-Chivas game.

“This was a real fun game tonight,” said IU coach Todd Yeagley. “Chivas is an excellent team; exactly what we had hoped for. They pushed us in every way possible. And we made a decision, we could sit and make it difficult for them to break us down, or we could press and be more aggressive. That’s the way we like to play. And we learned a lot tonight on how a team can break that down if you are not good with your positioning. It was a great exercise for our players.”

Caleb Konstanski had the lone goal for Indiana in the first half.
 
Notre Dame also struck first against Chivas U-23s when junior Harrison Shipp assisted on Ryan Finley’s goal in the 59th minute. Irving Avalos headed home the equalizer in the 67th minute.

“It was a great experience and a great atmosphere for our guys,” says Notre Dame head coach Bobby Clark. "[Chivas] are a very good team. I was pleased with the way our team handled playing against such a good team. I don’t feel we’ll play any stronger or more technical team this season and we have a very strong schedule. That was a really good test for us. It was maybe a little earlier than we would have wanted, but to get an opportunity to play a quality game like that will prove very beneficial.”
