Butler, Indiana Battle To Scoreless Tie

BLOOMINGTON, IND. -- Defense prevailed on both sides and Butler had to settle for a 0-0 tie against host Indiana in a spring men’s soccer match at Armstong Stadium on Friday night (April 6).  The contest was part of Butler’s five-match spring schedule.

Butler goalkeepers Andy Holte and Jon Dawson (right) faced an Indiana attack that unleashed 16 shots, including seven shots on goal.  But the Butler defenders were up to the task.  Holte played the first half in net and came away with two saves.  Dawson went the final 45 minutes and turned away five Indiana attempts.

Forward Austin Oldham led the Bulldogs’ attack with a pair of shots on goal.  Freshman Zach Steinberger had Butler’s other scoring attempt.

The match was the first of four that the Bulldogs will play in Indiana during April.  Butler will host Saint Louis at the Butler Bowl on Saturday, Sept. 14, at 7:30 p.m., in its next outing.
