[NASL 2014 COUNTDOWN]
After trips to Arizona and Florida, the expansion Indy Eleven began its in-state portion of its preseason schedule with a 2-0 win over the
Tourbeau Soccer Academy, a team of NAIA all-stars, Saturday at Westfield High School.
Eleven forward Pedro Mendes
, who play for the Atlanta
Silverbacks in 2013, continued his impressive preseason form -- five of Indy Eleven's seven goals -- by netting both Indy Eleven goals.
"Tonight we saw some good things, some spells where
we're finally seeing the pieces are starting to come together," said Indy Eleven head coach Juergen Sommer
. "In the next month, having these types of games will
allow us to develop chemistry and push training to another level of intensity as we continue to get fitter and get stronger." NASL, Preseason
