2011 Butler Women's Soccer
The Butler women's soccer will try to get back on the winning track when it takes on Green Bay Sunday, Oct. 23 at Green Bay's Santaga Stadium. The Bulldogs, currently sixth in the Horizon League standings, need a win to stay in the race to earn a berth into the Horizon League Soccer Championship.
Sunday's match is important because the winner will stay in the league's top six teams. The league tournament, which will be held at Milwaukee, includes the top six teams in the regular season standings.
The Bulldogs are coming off a 1-0 loss at Valparaiso that saw Butler post twice as many shots (16-8) and three times as many corner kicks (6-2) as the Crusaders. Valpo scored five seconds before halftime and held on to the lead. BU's last victory came Saturday, Oct. 1 at Youngstown State.
Green Bay, which is 0-2-2 in its last four matches, are led by Hekla Palmadottir (3g-3a). The Phoenix has scored just eight goals this season, but it allows just 0.83 goals per game.
Following Butler's match at Green Bay, the Bulldogs will host Loyola Friday, Oct. 28. at 7 p.m. ET. That match is the last of the regular season.
