Indy Eleven vs. Indiana University (Slideshow)

Indiana University came out hard against Indy Eleven Friday night - scoring first with a header goal from Femi Hollinger-Janzen, who found the net after a shot from Andrew Oliver hit the crossbar.

In the final match of the Eleven's preseason, the team was lucky to equalize before the half, but stoppage time allowed defender Andrew Stone to clean up a free kick set piece that unfolded his way.

Following the half, World Cup Champion Kleberson rocked the box by finishing a rebound off his own shot.

The Eleven finished the game with another stoppage time goal - this time from Don Smart - a final gift for the supporters who braved wind chills dipping into the 20s to follow the match 'till the end.
