INDIANAPOLIS (June 30, 2018) - Indy Eleven make a comeback in the final minutes of
the night to end level against Penn FC, 1-1. A goal in the 80th minute from forward
Jack McInerney sees the “Boys in Blue” extend their undefeated streak to five

Much of the action in the first half was found in the midfield as both sides traded
possession. Both teams were able to make deep runs into each other's 18-yard boxes
that resulted in easy clearances or pickups by both Indy Eleven goalkeeper Owain Fon
Williams or Penn FC man between the posts, Romuald Peiser.

Indy came close to securing a first-half lead in the 27th minute. Eleven forward
Justin Braun was on the receiving end of a passing play between midfielders Seth
Moses and Matt Watson deep in Penn FC's defensive half. Braun jolted into the right
edge of Penn's 18-yard box, followed by a quick pass inward. McInerney maneuvered
quickly around Penn defender Kyle Venter to meet the ball with with a falling shot,
but both players made contact with the ball to force it over the crossbar.

Chippy play saw several players issued yellow card throughout the evening, which
included Indy Eleven's Watson, substitute defender Brad Rusin and Penn FC midfielder
Dan Metzger. Additionally, Eleven defender Karl Ouimette accumulated two yellow
cards, which saw the Canadian international exit the match with a red card in the
76th minute.

Ouimette's first yellow card in the 50th minute saw Penn awarded a controversial
penalty kick. Ouimette and Penn forward Aaron Dennis locked legs near the top of
Indy's 18-yard box. As both fell forward into the box, the match official blew his
whistle and pointed to the spot. In the 51st minute, Penn forward Lucky Mkosana
stepped up and buried his shot into the upper right corner of the goal as Fon
Williams dove to the left.

As the match edged into the final 10 minutes playing down a man, Indy found the
equalizer that salvaged a point. In the 79h minute, “Indiana's Team” was awarded a
free kick nearly 30 yards from Penn's goal. McInerney took a right-footed shot,
which sent the dead ball arching over Penn's defensive wall and into the lower left
edge of the goal, just out of Peiser's reach. McInerney's goal brings Indy Eleven's
total for the season to 20.

Although Indy Eleven didn't walk away with three points, Indy Eleven head coach
Martin Rennie remains positive about remaining undefeated.

“We didn’t give up hardly any chances so I think we did that well,” said Rennie.
“Obviously we scored a good goal and had a couple chances to score another but
there’s always room for improvement. I think it’s positive for us to stay on an
unbeaten run now for five games and look forward to the next one.”

July 4 at 7:00 p.m., for Military Appreciation night against Ottawa FC. Fans can get
