Indiana advanced to the College Cup Finals for the first time since 2004 after defeating Creighton 1-0. The Hoosiers will be making their 14th appearance in the finals. 

Freshman Femi Hollinger-Janzen was the hero of the night after scoring a goal in the 27th minute. The forward nearly had a second goal in the closing seconds of the first half, but the referee waved off the score, saying that time had expired (the replay showed otherwise).

The one goal proved to be enough for the Hoosiers and goalie Luis Soffner was able to put the game away. The senior was untested for most of the game, but made two incredible saves in the final three minutes to prevent Creighton from tying the game and forcing overtime. 

The Hoosiers dominated most of the game, riding the play of their midfielders and exceptional defense to the win. 

IU will face Georgetown in the finals. The Hoyas defeated heavy favorite to win the tournament Maryland in penalty kicks (5-4) after the game had been tied 4-4. 

We'll have more on that game later. Don't forget to follow us on twitter @hoosiers101.
