Indiana edges Georgetown for NCAA title

HOOVER, Ala. — Nikita Kotlov scored off a header pass from Eriq Zavaleta midway through the second half to give Indiana a 1-0 victory over Georgetown on Sunday to win the NCAA men's soccer championship.

It is the eighth championship for the Hoosiers (16-5-3), their first since 2004.

Indiana midfielder Patrick Doody lofted a crossing pass to the right of the goal that brought Georgetown goalkeeper Tomas Gomez out from the net.

Zavaleta got to the ball before the Hoyas' Jimmy Nealis, sending a header to Kotlov that he easily kicked into the open net.
