Griswold Scores Twice, Bulldogs Rout Indiana State

 Box Score

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - Freshman forward Katie Griswold scored two goals and senior Angie Muir had two assists as the Butler women's soccer team routed Indiana State, 3-1, Sunday afternoon. BU posted season highs in goals and shots in the victory.

Griswold and Muir sparked Butler's offensive onslaught, helping the Bulldogs score all three of their goals in a 15:46 span in the first half. Freshman Rachel Scott started the scoring at the 28:29 mark, taking a cross from senior Carrie Twyman in the center of the goalie box and sending a shot past ISU keeper Taylor Nelson.

Butler (3-4-0) took a 2-0 lead at 38:37 when Griswold got her first goal of the match - and of her Butler career - on a pass from Muir in the center of the box.

The Sycamores answered in the 44th minute, with Alison Gasparovich scoring at 43:36. ISU's Laura Terry was credited with an assist.

The Bulldogs got the goal back just 44 seconds later, with Muir hooking up with Griswold again to finish the scoring flurry.

BU totaled a season-high 23 shots, with 10 tries coming on goal. The Bulldogs also had an 8-1 edge in corner kicks.

Butler continues its stretch of road matches this week, traveling to Indiana Wednesday, Sept. 16 and to Xavier Friday, Sept. 18. The Bulldogs then host Louisville next Sunday, Sept. 20.
