* Konner Hoot's first goal of the season tied things at 2-2 in the 85th minute.

NUMBERS OF NOTE

* IU East keeper Aaron Gipson made six saves.

NOTABLE QUOTABLE

"An incredible effort by the guys. We talked before the game about how we needed every guy that got on the field to do a job and put everything they had into the game. To have the heart to crawl back in the end, I can't say enough about the heart and effort our guys showed.

The guys bought into the game plan and stepped up and executed. To see the second goal was the big payoff ... to see we can put this defensive game plan in and still get goals. Just a tremendous, incredible feeling.

"This shows us what we are capable of going forward. We elevated our standard. We know what we are capable of, so that is the expectation moving forward." - IU East coach Steve Moore
