The No. 17-ranked Indiana Tech men’s soccer team continued their historic season Saturday as they defeated Madonna, 1-0, in the championship match of the WHAC Tournament at Warrior Athletic Field.
The win gave the Warriors the sweep of the regular season and tournament titles for the first time in program history, with the former title their first-ever, while the latter is just their second-ever (2009).
Tech (16-4-1) has now won five consecutive matches while the team has not lost a match since Sept. 20 while going 13-0-1, the longest unbeaten streak in program history. The 16 wins is the second-most in history and trails just the 18 victories achieved by the 1981 and 1983 squads.
Tech’s Pep Casas who was awarded a penalty kick after being fouled in the box, and the freshman put one in the upper left 90 past Madonna keeper Joe Smith to record the only goal of the game with just nine minutes left in regulation.
The Warriors now await their placement in the NAIA National Championship Opening Round, which will be announced at 1 p.m. Monday with the NAIA Selection Show. The show will be on the NAIA’s Facebook page.
