Memphis 901 FC Falls to Indy Eleven Saturday Night
MEMPHIS, Tennessee - Memphis 901 FC's five-match unbeaten streak came to a halt Saturday night at AutoZone Park as Indy Eleven took a 3-0 win.
The loss was Memphis' first since April 30 as the visitors capitalized off strong play from their midfield.
Saturday started with both teams exchanging counter attacks early and often in front of a raucous 6,829 fans in attendance.
Indy forward Thomas Enevoldsen took in a pass and took advantage of a one-on-one situation, scoring the first goal in the 31st minute. Memphis (2-7-4, 10 pts) fought back with several attacks of its own, putting balls into the box. Forward Elliot Collier just narrowly missed converting off a Wes Charpie cross in the 33rd minute.
Still, Memphis entered halftime down just 1-0.
When both clubs returned, Indy would find two goals to close out the match at 3-0. The first came on a deflected Kim Do-Heon free kick from the edge of the box, to put Indy (7-2-3, 24 pts) up 2-0 in the 52nd minute. Six minutes later, forward Dane Kelly found an open Tyler Pasher who scored the final goal of the night.
Memphis now sets its sights on Major League Soccer's Orlando City SC for Wednesday's fourth round showdown in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Kickoff for that match is set for 7:30 p.m. at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex.
