Guenzatti nets ninth of the season, Indy extends unbeaten streak to six
INDIANAPOLIS (Saturday, September 2, 2023) – Holding on to the late lead, Indy Eleven defeated The Miami FC, 1-0, on Saturday night at home to extend their unbeaten streak to six games.
The Indy win moves the team to 11W-9L-8D, and Miami drops to 7W-12L-8D.
To start the match, both sides created opportunities in front of goal; however, neither side could find the back of the net before halftime. Staying competitive, both teams were shown yellow cards with Miami accumulating three and Indy being shown one.
Setting a new milestone, Indy Eleven’s Adrian Diz Pe and Cam Lindley reached the 10,000th minute threshold in the USL Championship regular season before the game reached halftime.
Breaking the deadlock, the Boys in Blue found the winner through Sebastian Guenzatti after a ball played across the face of goal from Younes Boudadi in the 72nd minute. The goal marks Guenzatti’s ninth goal of the year and Boudadi’s fourth assist of the season. After the goal, the Eleven held on to their lead giving Tim Trilk his fourth clean sheet of the season and Indy its 10th in the last 28 games. Only Pittsburgh Riverhounds (13) and Louisville City (12) have achieved this more this season.
In a card-filled match, the two sides combined for nine cards featuring a red card for Miami’s Paco Craig. Additionally, Indy led possession with 50.8%, and Miami led with 10 shots to Indy’s seven.
Next, Indy Eleven will travel to New Mexico United for a 9:00 p.m. ET kickoff on Friday, September 15 for the first game of their two-game road trip.
