The Indians are the number three team in the NCAA Division II Appalachian Region, while the Bulldogs are the number four team in the same poll. The Bulldogs scored two goals in the first 20 minutes of the contest. Thomas Szvetitz (Valrico, FL) opened the scoring at the 15:56 mark. The four-year starter settled a loose ball and fired it inside the right post for his fourth goal of the season. Freshman James Lavery (Belfast, N.
