Julien Edward's goal in the 88th minute lifted the No. 21 ranked Drake Bulldogs over the No. 7 ranked Indiana Hoosiers, 2-1. Edwards, a senior defender for Drake University, was a member of the 2009 Menace squad.
The Des Moines Menace’s 2009 season started under an uncertain cloud of questions and ended with two division championships and a run to the Premier Development League’s Elite Eight – the franchise’s best finish since the 2005 PDL championship.
