Indy Eleven remained unbeaten as they were held to a goalless draw against Las Vegas Lights FC. In their home opener at Michael A. Carroll Stadium. After two games on the road, they opened the season with a 1-1 draw at Tampa Bay and then followed that up last week with an impressive 1-0 way at Detroit.  

Despite the windy and chilly weather conditions that did not stop the Indy Eleven home faithful from braving the conditions. Indy dominated most of the game with 80% of the possession, but to their frustration they could not find their way past a stubborn Vegas defense. 

Indy had their first attempt at goal in the 8th minute when midfielder Aodhan Quinn right-footed shot just went wide of the post. Fifteen minutes later the hosts had their best chance of the game when Eleven forward Sebastian Guenzatti was put through by English native Jack Blake only to see his effort blocked by Las Vegas goalkeeper Alan Diaz. Indy continued to press forward and came close to taking the lead when Soloman Asante’s shot struck the post. 

The visitors had a great chance just before half time when forward Pato Botello Faz found himself in space in the penalty area, but he blazed his shot over the cross bar.  

Indy Eleven started the second half on the attack, in the 56th minute Asante’s crossed for Guenzatti but Diaz was on hand to parry the ball away. Las Vegas had a rare attack on the Indy goal when Lucas Stauffer low shot was easily saved by Oetti in the Eleven goal. Indy continued to dominate but could not find the breakthrough. 

Indy will take a break from USL action on Wednesday, 5th April when they will host Michigan Stars FC. in the U.S. Open Cup Second Round with the game scheduled for a 7:00 p.m. kickoff.
