Indiana Clinches At Least a Share of Big Ten Regular Season Title
Oct. 25, 2004
PARK RIDGE, IL - The Indiana men's soccer team secured nothing less than a tie for the 2004 Big Ten regular season title with a 1-0 win over Ohio State on Sunday. The victory also guaranteed the Hoosiers the top seed in this year's Championship.
With the loss, Ohio State dropped to 3-1 in League action, but with two Conference games remaining, the Buckeyes could still earn a share of the regular season title. Ohio State closes out its League play with a pair of road games, traveling to Northwestern, a team that handed the Hoosiers their only Big Ten loss, on Friday and to Michigan on Saturday, Nov. 6.
Under first-year head coach Michael Freitag, Indiana is currently 11-3-1 overall and posted a 5-1 record in League play. The Hoosiers wrap up the regular season with two non-conference games this weekend against Louisville and St. Louis and match up next week with IUPUI on Wednesday, Nov. 3.
The 2004 Big Ten Men's Soccer Championship will be held November 11-14 at the University of Michigan. College Sports Television (CSTV) will broadcast the title game at 9:00 p.m. (EST) on Monday, Nov. 15. For complete tournament coverage, visit the Conference website at www.bigten.org.
