Cincinnati substitute forward Jake Meyer nearly leveled the match after getting in behind the Eleven backline, but unfortunately he sent his shot high. Indy was close to finding a second goal late in the match as Mitchell found himself on a breakaway, however, his shot was fired wide left.

The Eleven will travel to play FC Cincinnati of the USL in the Second Round on Wednesday, May 18.
