[INDIANA-SAINT LOUIS: Men]
No. 12 Indiana gave up a goal to Robert Kristo
from 35 yards after just 14 seconds -- tying the
SLU record for the fastest goal to start a match -- but it recovered to beat No. 3 Saint Louis, 3-1, on Wednesday at Bill Armstrong Stadium.
By the 23rd minute, the Hoosiers were ahead on
goals by Matt Foldesy
and Jamie Vollmer
. Tanner Thompson
, brother of San Jose
Earthquakes rookie Tommy Thompson,
added the third goal in the 39th minute.
IU responded in the eighth minute when right back Billy McConnell
made a run toward the middle of the field before slotting the ball through traffic to Foldesy, who hit a low shot that beat goalkeeper Sascha Otte
for the junior transfer’s first goal as a Hoosier. Vollmer scored his second of the season in the 23rd minute after taking a pass from Patrick Doody
. Thompson's goal came after Vollmer's required a save from Otte that bounced right out to him for the goal on a rebound.
With the win, IU
improved to 6-1-3 on the season, while the Billikens dropped to 7-2-0 after running off five wins in a row.
-- Matt McKeon
also scored for the
Billikens 14 seconds into a match in 1994 against UALR.
