FC Indiana 0-1 Houston Aces
MAY 11, 2013 - FC Indiana's 199th game in its tenth year of women's
soccer was marked by a 1-0 WPSL defeat to Houston Aces at St Joe HS
Stadium Saturday night.
The defeat, sealed by a short-range effort from Jackie Acevedo that Geralda Saintilus should have dealt with, was characterized by some poor defending from the Lionesses. FC Indiana fell behind after just 4 minutes when Acevedo benefited from hesitation by FC Indiana keeper and her center back Kristin Colley to slot home from 7 yards out.
FC Indiana's best chance of the game came just after the hour mark when Kensie Bobo darted away from marker and only had to slot the ball home butwas stopped by the Aces goalkeeper who came out bravely.
Led by industrious Wisline Dolce, FC Indiana responded well after the goal with Houston threatening sporadically to break through FC Indiana's backline.
