INDIANAPOLIS – The Indianapolis AlleyCats clinched a berth in the American Ultimate Disc League playoffs with a 29-15 win Friday night over the Cincinnati Revolution at Kuntz Stadium.

The 'Cats are now 8-4, good for second place in the AUDL Midwest Division. The top three teams advance to postseason, which begins July 19.

The win gave Indianapolis a three-game sweep of the Revolution this year.

Cincinnati (3-8) and the AlleyCats traded goals throughout the first quarter. With eight seconds left, An Toine passed to fellow Ball State alum Keenan Plew to put Indianapolis ahead 6-5.

Forty-nine seconds into the second quarter, Plew snared a pass from Joey Cari (Anderson) as the 'Cats stretched their lead to 7-5.

With 7:02 left in the quarter, Cincinnati pulled to within 8-7. After that, the Indianapolis defense tightened up as the 'Cats outscored the Revolution 6-2 to take a 14-9 lead at the break.

Indianapolis continued to roll in the third quarter, and when Jason Cheek (Huntington) and Levi Jacobs (Center Grove High School) hooked up for a score with 4:37 left, the 'Cats went up 18-10. The goal was Jacobs' first as a professional.

The 'Cats scored three consecutive goals in the final quarter and led 24-13 with 8:21 remaining, when the game was interrupted by lightning for 20 minutes.

When play resumed, Indianapolis outscored Cincinnati down the stretch 5-2 to win going away.

Friday marked the AlleyCats' final home game of the season. The 'Cats travel to Oxford, Mich., July 4 to play the Detroit Mechanix. They close out the regular season July 12 against the Minnesota Wind Chill in St. Paul.
