[INDIANA-NOTRE DAME] Notre Dame has done what few teams have done and won back-to-back games against Indiana in Bloomington. A goal from defender Grant Van De Casteele off a corner kick by former U.S. U-20 Dillon Powers in the 71st minute proved to be the game-winner as the No. 9 Irish topped No. 10 IU, 1-0, on Wednesday night at Bill Armstrong Stadium.

It was only the seventh Irish with 36 games against Indiana, but five of them have come in Bloomington. Notre Dame also won back-to-back games on the road in 2005 and 2006.
 
“It’s good anytime you go to Indiana and come away with a win,” said Irish coach Bobby Clark. “We were very good in the first half and should have had at least a couple goals. Full marks to Indiana, they came out hard and pressured us in the second half and made it a lot more difficult. It was a good game. Indiana is a very good team, and they’ll be one of the better teams we play all year.”
               
Indiana’s first shot on goal did not come until the 86th minute when a Femi Hollinger-Janzen header was punched out by Irish goalkeeper Patrick Wall.
 
Indiana goalkeeper Luis Soffner made eight saves, several of them spectacular, to keep the Hoosiers in the game.

Sept. 26 in Bloomington, Ind.
Indiana 0 Notre Dame 1. Goal: Van De Casteele (Powers) 71.
Indiana -- Soffner, McKain, Konstanski, Bradford, Schall, Petts, Oliver, Kotlov, Corrado, Bushue, Zavaleta. Subs: Hollinger-Janzen, Doody, Sparks, Lax.
