Indianapolis Stuns Top-Seeded Lewis Men’s Soccer, 3-0, In GLVC Tourney Opener

Roberts makes 14 saves in goal for UIndy; Adkins records three assists for Greyhounds.

Romeoville, Ill. – The Lewis University men’s soccer team was unable to solve the riddle of Indianapolis goalkeeper Justin Roberts, as the junior netminder turned away 14 shots to help propel the eighth-seeded Greyhounds to the 3-0 upset win over the Flyers in the Great Lakes Valley Conference First Round match-up at the Lewis Soccer Field on Sunday (Oct. 31) afternoon.

   The 14 shots on frame ties the Flyers’ second-biggest output of the season, while Roberts’ 14 saves ties him for the second-most in the GLVC this season for a single-game.

   UIndy sophomore forward Bobby Adkins served as the offensive catalyst for the Greyhounds on Sunday, as he assisted on all three scores. The first goal came at the 35:37 mark, as Adkins found Roger Lee in front of the net to give the Greyhounds the 1-0 advantage.  

   Less than four minutes later, the Greyhounds scored again, as Adkins connected with junior Micah Uemura off a corner kick to extend UIndy’s lead to 2-0 in the 40th minute.

   The set piece proved to be the Flyers’ nemesis, once again, in the second half, as Adkins teamed up with Ryan Barnett off a corner kick for the Greyhounds final score of the afternoon at the 53:42 mark.

   With the win, UIndy improves to 9-7 on the season and will face the winner of Drury/Quincy in the GLVC semifinals. Lewis is now 10-6-1 and will await word of a possible NCAA Regional bid.
