Maryland men's soccer took sole possession of first place despite not scoring a goal in a 0-0 overtime draw against Indiana Friday at Ludwig Field.

In the 18th-ranked Terps' sixth overtime game of the season, both teams failed to make many runs or breakaways in a defensive-minded matchup.

The tie left Indiana still in last place in the Big Ten, looking up at eight other teams, including the Terps.

Michigan, which was tied with Maryland for first place going into the game, drops a half game back to second place as it did not play Friday night.

Tsubasa Enoh paced the Terps' offense, taking four shots, three of them on goal. The senior created much of what little offense Maryland could muster. Eryk Williamson led the team in shots with five, however, the rest of the team just couldn't get many shots near the net. Maryland's non-Endoh players only accounted for two shots on goal all game. The Terrapins finished with 18 shots on the night, six of which came on goal.

The Hoosiers defense was able to shut down Maryland's high-powered attack a game after the Terps hung four goals on Penn State in a comeback win. Indiana goalkeeper Colin Webb was rarely challenged and finished with six  saves in 110 minutes of work.

Tanner Thompson led the Hoosiers in shots (5) and shots on goal (2), and was the team's main offensive threat. The Hoosiers attempted 16 shots, four of which were on goal.

Sebastian Elney missed a shot from right outside the goalkeeper's box with seven minutes remaining in regulation. The freshman had a chance to put the Hoosiers away, but pushed the shot right, much to the dismay of The Crew.

Nothing came easy for the Terrapins' offense Friday. The Terps held a slight shot advantage over the Hoosiers, but were unable to get many quality chances. Elney and Williamson weren't able to make many of their customary breakaways into the box, and the scoreboard reflected that.

Maryland (6-3-3, 2-1-2 in Big Ten) equaled its first-half average of eight shots, but it hardly seemed that way. After Indiana (7-4-1, 1-3-0 in Big Ten) held the advantage in time of possession early on, the Terrapins worked to undo that.

In the second half, the Terps dominated time-of-possession, but were unable to advance the ball near the box for most of the game.

George Campbell did not receive any minutes Friday after registering a hat trick in the team's victory over Penn State last Friday.

Jorge Calix got his second start of the season against the Hoosiers and is getting some more responsibilities for the Terps. He took several of the team's corners Friday, splitting them with usual corner-taker Mael Corboz.

Maryland will face Delaware at Ludwig Field on Tuesday.
