Butler Earns 2-2 Draw With Miami
Sept. 14, 2007
Oxford, Ohio - Junior Angie Muir and freshman Lindsey Fox each answered both of the Redhawk's goals, but the Bulldogs were unable to post the go-ahead score, as Butler finished in a 2-2 deadlock at Miami (Ohio) on Friday (Sept. 14) evening.
Butler moves to 2-2-1 on the year.
"Coming from behind as we did twice in this game confirms we are mentally and physically tough, which are important characteristic of a team," head coach Tari St. John said.
After Miami took a quick lead in the match on a goal by Kersta Carlson in the seventh minute, Muir responded in the 20th minute of play by side-stepping the goalkeeper in the box and chipping in the tying mark.
"Muir has knack for coming up big in these type of games," St. John commented. "She is a player that thrives in pressure situations."
The match would remain deadlocked until second period, when Carlson put the Redhawks back in front with her second goal of the night. The Miami lead would not last long, however, as Fox netted her second score of the year less than four minutes later after dribbling through the defense and burying a shot in the left side of the net.
"Achievining the result we did tonight included efforts and contributions which are not always reflected in the stat book," St. John added. "Lauren [Papierski] and Crystal [Wright] gave us quality minutes off the bench to sustain us through the 110 minutes of a high level of competition."
Butler opens up the home schedule on Sunday (Sept. 16) when it hosts Belmont beginning at 1:00 p.m. at Varsity Field.
