Timbers Homegrowns Hunter Sulte and Tega Ikoba part of Indy Eleven’s 12-game unbeaten run.

Timbers homegrown goalkeeper Hunter Sulte and forward Tega Ikoba have been integral pieces of Indy Eleven's current 12-game unbeaten run in USL as they continue their season-long loan.

Since getting the starting nod on April 20, Sulte has become Indy's starting keeper – playing in all but one match since making his Eleven debut. In the 10 matches he's been in goal (USL and U.S. Open Cup), Indy has a 9-0-1 record, and the club is currently riding a 10-match unbeaten streak across all competitions. On June 15, Sulte recorded a second-straight shutout - and his fifth overall across all competitions - in a dramatic, 1-0 win against San Antonio FC that saw him deliver a key penalty kick save.

His efforts throughout the match and crucial PK save against San Antonio FC earned Sulte the goalkeeper spot in the USL Championship Team of the Week.

On the offensive side for Indy Eleven, Ikoba continues to contribute, with 11 games played across all competitions (4 starts) and has scored a goal.
