Indy Eleven News Release

MIAMI - Indy Eleven went on the road and picked up three points with a 3-1 victory over USL Championship Eastern Conference opponent Miami FC on Sunday evening at the FIU Soccer Stadium. The win improves Indy to 4-4-2 in league action, while Miami falls to 2-7-1.

In the waning minutes of the first half, Indy's season assist leader Aedan Stanley lined up for a corner that found the head of Adrian Diz Pe. The assist was Stanley's fourth of the season and the tally was the first of 2024 for Diz Pe.

The visitors had an 8-1 advantage in shots in the first frame and garnered four corners to Miami's zero.

It didn't take long for Miami to grab the equalizer in the second frame, as Luisinho registered a 57th-minute goal to pull the game level.

The remainder of the second half saw Augi Williams take over for the Boys in Blue after converting on a penalty in the 67th minute, drawn by Younes Boudadi, for the eventual match winner. A 70th-minute insurance goal for Williams came from who other than Stanley, tying Willams for a team-high four goals in 2024 and a fifth assist for Stanley. Stanley's five assists are the most for a player in the league.

Indy Eleven is now unbeaten in six straight across all competitions, including four in USL Championship action. The four matches are the most since a stretch of six from August 9-September 2, 2023.

Indy has scored in 10 straight USL Championship matches this season, continuing the longest streak to open a USL Championship campaign for the club, and is only two games shy of its longest overall scoring streak in a season of 12 games in 2022. In total, Indy has scored in 13 straight regular season matches dating back to Sept. 30, 2023.

The Boys in Blue have also scored 10 first-half goals this season, the second most of any USL Championship team (Charleston, 16).

Indy finished with the 17-8 advantage in shots, including 6-2 on frame. Williams led the team with nine shots, three on frame, while Martinez had three and Blake had two. Defensively, Diz Pe won three tackles, had three interceptions and added a pair of clearances. Yannik Oettl had one save.
