Irish Drop 4-0 Decision To Top-Ranked Hoosiers

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The top-ranked Indiana men's soccer team scored three second-half goals, all in an eight -minute span as the Hoosiers defeated 18th-ranked Notre Dame 4-0 at Alumni Field before a crowd of 2,557 spectators.

It was the season opener for Indiana who had four different players tally goals. Yuri Lavinenko dished off two assists for the visitors, while Aleksey Korol had a goal and an assist. The Hoosiers got on the scoreboard early scoring 1:05 into the contest when Yuri Lavrinenko lofted a pass for the left side of the field which Caleb Porter headed in from six yards out.

Following the opening goal, Notre Dame tightened its defense and played the Hoosiers tough over the next 74 minutes of the contest. Indiana began to wear the young Irish squad down midway through the second half.

The Hoosiers scored their second goal at the 75:50 mark when Lazo Alavanja connected from outside the 15 yards out off a Lavrinenko assist. Korol gave Indiana a 3-0 advantage less than three minutes later on a 30 yard blast from 25 yards out and Dennis Fadeski tallied Indiana's final goal the 83:40 mark in the contest following a pass from Korol inside the box.

Indiana held an 11-8 shot advantage in the contest. The Irish had their best scoring opportunity in the first half when freshman Reggie McKnight headed a shot from eight yards out which went over the crossbar. Indiana's defense tightened in the second half and allowed Notre Dame just three shots.

The Irish, 0-1-1, return to action on Sunday, September 7 when they host Providence in a BIG EAST league test at 1:00 p.m. on Alumni Field.
