Soccer Cats Draw Hoosiers

Updated 11/15/1999
The University of Kentucky men's soccer team will face defending national champion Indiana on Sunday, Nov. 21, in the opening round of the 1999 NCAA Soccer Tournament, championship organizers announced Monday night.

"Indiana's a tough team," UK Coach Ian Collins said. "But in a 32-team draw, every team is tough. Our players have worked for this all year, though, and I know they'll continue to work hard over the next week to get ready for the match."

The Hoosiers (16-3) are coming off a 2-1 double-overtime win over Penn State in the Big Ten final, while the Cats (13-6-1) enter the match riding a four-match win streak.

UK and IU met earlier this season in Bloomington with Indiana coming out 4-2 winners. IU leads the all-time series between the two schools 6-1. UK's lone victory came in 1995, a 1-0 win in Bloomington.
