The Indiana O-40 team traveled to the wilds of the Swickley Hills to play a match against North United. It had been a month since Indiana’s last match (due to cancelations and Easter), and the first few minutes showed the visitor’s rust. Indiana’s midfield and backs were slow reacting to North United’s first attack, resulting in an easy header to give the home team a 1-0 lead. That shock seemed to wake up Indiana, and they started to play more aggressively, culminating in a breakaway for Chad Hojnoski. The finish was in the low-left corner, and the game was tied. Indiana continued to play strongly for the remainder of the half, but was unable to pull ahead. North United had somewhat limped into halftime, but they came out like a tiger in the second half, and the game went up and down the field at a rapid (for O-40) pace. With about 18 minutes to go, North United lofted a dangerous ball to the far post. Indiana keeper Kevin Kerr called for it, but then lost his footing in the mud (marring an otherwise solid game), and North United had the lead back. Rallying behind their keeper, Indiana responded with their best run of play, putting intense pressure on the North United goal. With about 10 minutes remaining, a clear hand ball in the penalty box was committed by the home team, and Todd Myers converted the PK to again tie the score. The final minutes saw Indiana pressing for the game winner, but it was not to be, and the game ended 2-2. Indiana, with a record of one win and two ties, will host league-leader Robinson in their next match.
