INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The Indy Eleven are still searching for their first win in franchise history after dropping a 2-1 decision to Edmonton Saturday night at Carroll Stadium.
Daryl Fordyce and Kareem Moses scored two minutes apart to put Edmonton up 2-0 nothing midway through the first half.
The Eleven cut the deficit in half in the 29th minute when Edmonton’s Mallan Roberts deflected Mike Ambersley’s shot into his own net.
Indy held the momentum for the next 15 minutes, but could not net the equalizer.
“We made it difficult for ourselves,” Indy Eleven head coach Juergen Sommer said. “We gave away two sloppy goals and trying to come back from a deficit like that is very hard to do. I have a young team. We’re building. We’re making some amateur mistakes still, so we have to nip it in the bud to gives ourselves a chance to really compete.”
The Indy Eleven host Ottawa next Saturday on MyIndy-TV 23.
