Indy Eleven Draw Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC, 1-1

Indy Eleven News Release

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Indy Eleven went on the road to Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC and picked up at 1-1 draw on Saturday evening at Weidner Field. With the point, Indy moves to 1-4-2 on the season, while Colorado Springs sits at 0-5-1.

Colorado Springs set the tone early in the match with Ronaldo Dumas finding the back of the net in just the third minute for the early lead.

The momentum shifted, however, over a 15-minute stretch in the first frame that saw five yellow cards between the two sides. Indy registered nearly 70% of possession during that period and capped it off with a 31st-minute tally from Augi Williams. The play started with a Jack Blake ball into team assist leader Aedan Stanley, who found Williams for a header inside the six for his third helper of 2024. The goal was the second for Williams.

The teams went into the locker room knotted at one, with Indy holding the possession battle at 56% and the Switchbacks taking the advantage in shots (10-5) and shots on frame (3-2).

Indy played a dominant second half against a 10-man Colorado Springs squad following Wahab Ackwei's 58th-minute red card for violent conduct, but was unable to find the match winner.

The home team saw its last shot of the match in the 53rd minute, while Indy managed eight shots, with two on frame, and held 64% of the possession in the second half.

Blake led the visitors with four shots, while goal scorer Williams added three. In his first start of the season, Hunter Sulte registered a pair of saves off three shots faced.

The Boys in Blue have now scored in seven straight matches to open the season, the longest stretch to open a USL Championship campaign since six games to open the 2019 season and a longer streak than at any point in 2023.

Indy returns home Saturday to host North Carolina FC at 7 p.m. ET. The game will air locally on WNDY and stream nationally on ESPN+.
