Eleven Falls to Louisville City FC at Home
INDIANAPOLIS (Saturday, May 27, 2023) – Hosting the second of back-to-back home games on Saturday night, Indy Eleven hosted Louisville City FC for the first and only time this season. A one-time shot in the box from Will Harris in the 20th minute would be the difference maker as the Eleven were shut out 1-0 Saturday night.
A Ray Serrano corner kick delivered the ball into the box where Harris was able to put one past Yannik Oettl to give Louisville the early lead.
Offense was hard to come by for the Boys in Blue in the first half, as Indy Eleven did not record their first shot until Douglas Martinez’s attempt in stoppage time. Despite winning the possession battle (52%-48%), the Eleven were outshot 5-1 in the first.
Indy came out with a purpose in the second half, getting four shots in the opening 12 minutes of the half. The Boys in Blue got a massive boost of energy when Roberto Molina checked in for his team debut in the 68th minute. He showcased strong footwork and put an attempt on goal that almost tied the game in the 74th minute.
Next up, the Boys in Blue go on the road to take on the Charleston Battery for a 7:30 p.m. ET kickoff Friday. Indy’s next home game takes place on Saturday, June 10th, when the Eleven hosts Hartford Athletic for a 7:30 kickoff.
