Irish impress in Bloomington

[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.
