Entering Friday night's NCAA College Cup semi-finals Big Ten fans were hoping to see a current B1G team win and a future B1G team win for an all B1G clash as Indiana took on Creighton in one semi-final and Maryland took on Georgetown for the right to play for the national championship on Sunday. However that dream matchup wouldn't come to fruition, but don't blame the Hoosiers (15-5-3) because they took care of business in the first semi-final of the night, winning 1-0 over Creighton. Maryland couldn't find a way to win despite an amazing array of 8 goals in a 4-4 tie that was decided in favor of the Hoyas on penalty kicks. Georgetown (19-3-3) won that battle 4-3 and it sent them to a matchup with the Hoosiers on Sunday. Maryland's season ends on their only loss of the season for them, a bitter moment no doubt. Indiana's game wasn't nearly as dramatic as the nightcap, but it wasn't without it's share of fireworks either. The Hoosiers opened up the scoring on a 27th minute goal from freshman Femi Hollinger-Janzen. It was just Hollinger-Janzen's 4th goal of the season and just his 9th point in total this season.  Creighton had a 10-9 shot advantage, however they only put 2 of those shots on net and allowed 3 Hoosiers shots on goal and the one S.O.G. difference was all it took for the Hoosiers.  They will be playing on Sunday at 2pm Eastern on ESPNU for the national championship. Indiana is going for their 8th national championship in their 14th appearance in the final.
