Ricondo strikes in OT for Spartans

October 18, 2009

The Indiana men's soccer team fell to Michigan State 1-0 in double overtime Sunday afternoon on Jerry Yeagley Field at Armstrong Stadium.

The loss puts Indiana at 7-5-1 overall and 2-1 in Big Ten play. Michigan State improves to 7-4-1, 1-3 in conference action.

"You have to play every second of every game," said head coach Mike Freitag. "That is probably the most we have ever dominated a Michigan State team but they found a way to win. It is very disappointing; this one hurts. Sometimes when you are dominated a game you lose focus and let your guard down, and to Michigan State's credit they found a way to win the game."

Despite, being outshot 22-7, the Spartans won the game on Jeff Ricondo's goal in the 103rd minute.
