Lions goalkeeper Kyle Bugay recorded his second National Premier Soccer League clean sheet against Kalamazoo FC on Sunday, as Bugay once again produced a number of important saves. Despite the threat of Dalton Michael and company, Bugay managed to keep another clean sheet.
“Bugay’s top performance almost goes without saying when it comes to these big matches,” said defender Sven Görgen. “Bugay is amongst the top goalkeepers in this competition and he has shown that in this game. The best players step up to the plate on days like this.”
Sunday’s 0-0 tie is FC Indiana’s second draw since Sunday, June 2nd, and remains winless in three home matches for the season with two draws and a defeat.
“For us this was an important match, a match we were looking to get three points coming off a disappointing road trip, with a poor result in Detroit,” said Görgen. “With seven games to go and four at home, it was a very important match, and we failed to get the result. We didn’t drop all three points, but we keep tying matches that we feel we should get three points out of.”
The Lions put five of their seven shots on frame, with Romain Lopez leading the team with three attempts. Anthony Díaz’s clanged his own in the 74th. Díaz banged a free kick only to witness Kalamazoo FC goalkeeper Isaac Walker keep the Lions off the scoresheet. Otherwise, only a few half-chance headers and a Jerry Escobedo shot in the final minutes accounted for the home side’s offensive output.
