Indy Eleven News Release

INDIANAPOLIS – Indy Eleven continued its trend of scoring early in Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup matches this season, as a second-minute goal proved to be the match winner as Indy defeated USL Championship foe San Antonio FC, 2-0, in the Round of 32 Wednesday night at Butler University’s Bud and Jackie Sellick Bowl.

Augi Williams put the Boys in Blue on the board in just the second minute after a Douglas Martinez cross was deflected back to the top of the six for Williams to put off the keeper and into the net. It didn’t take long for Indy to double the lead as their USL Championship leaders in goals and assists teamed up for a 10th-minute tally. Sebastian Guenzatti dropped a pass back to Aedan Stanley, who found Jack Blake for the goal.

A scoreless remaining 80 minutes gave Hunter Sulte the shutout, the second consecutive for the Boys in Blue in Open Cup play.

Offensively, Martinez and Blake led Indy with three shots, while Williams and Guenzatti added a pair. Defensively, Ben Mines added a game-high four tackles won and Benjamin Ofeimu had a team-high five clearances. Sulte registered six saves.

With the win, Indy’s Open Cup record improves to 6-7-1 all-time, with a 5-2-0 record when hosting.

Indy will host USL Championship foe Detroit City FC in the Round of 16, after Detroit defeated 2023 U.S. Open Cup champion Houston Dynamo (MLS) in penalties in their Round of 16 match-up. Game date and time will be announced later.

The Boys in Blue next travel to Miami FC Sunday for USL Championship action. Kick is slated for 7 p.m. ET on ESPN+.
