Indiana traveled to Harmarville for the second game of their round-robin playoff pool. After a forfeit by Heidelberg in first game, Indiana was trying to stay at the top of the table, but against an opponent they have always found difficult. For most of the first half, the game was played primarily in the midfield – Indiana generated few scoring opportunities and Harmarville almost none, so the game was fittingly scoreless at halftime. In the second half, Indiana was able to increase the pressure, and finally a breakthrough occurred. Chad Hojnoski ran onto a ball behind the Harmarville defense. The keeper came out to play the ball, but Hojnoski was able to toe-poke it past him, and to an unmarked Pete Cefalu, who finished into the open goal. The hosts pushed hard for an equalizer, but Indiana’s defense appeared to be equal to the task, with Ray Mullen in particular playing an outstanding game. Then, with only 30 seconds remaining, Indiana left a Harmarville forward unmarked on the end-line for an attacking throw in. He popped the ball up toward the goal, and a miscommunication allowed the ball to roll free across the Indiana goal mouth. In the ensuing scramble, Harmarville was able to knock in the tying goal, and the game ended 1-1. While the result pushed Indiana out of first place, they can still go to the championship game with a win against North United (Nov. 1, 4pm, White Twp. field).
