No. 6 Indiana Falls, 1-0, in NCAA Third Round

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- A slip and it was over, a game, a championship season, an unbeaten home soccer winning streak.

Hoosiers lay strewn across Indiana's Jerry Yeagley Field as if they'd been struck by lightning.

In so many ways, they had.

Sunday afternoon's 1-0 overtime NCAA Sweet 16 loss to UC Santa Barbara was a stunner that turned the Armstrong Stadium crowd mute. It took the Hoosiers nearly five minutes to rise and slowly walk across the black cinder track to a locker room finale no one wanted.

Santa Barbara senior striker Will Baynham blasted in the winner minutes into the second overtime period and, just like that, IU's 38-match home unbeaten streak was history.
