HOOVER, Ala. (AP) Femi Hollinger-Janzen scored midway through the first half and Indiana held off Creighton 1-0 on Friday night to advance to the NCAA soccer final.

The seven-time champion Hoosiers (15-5-3) will play Georgetown in the title game Sunday. The Hoyas beat Maryland 4-3 on penalty kicks following a 4-4 tie.

Hollinger-Janzen gathered a deflected pass on the right wing and booted an 8-yard shot that bounced in off goalkeeper Jeff Gal for his fourth goal of the season.

Creighton (17-4-3) lost for the first time in 15 games. The Bluejays were 12-0-2 after opening 5-3-1.

Creighton had only two good scoring chances in the final 20 minutes, and goalkeeper Luis Soffner blocked both attempts. The Hoosiers have given up only two goals in their four NCAA tournament games.

Indiana won its last title in 2004.
