BLOOMINGTON, IND. - The Butler women's soccer team dropped to 12-5 on the season with 1-0 loss to instate rival Indiana on Wednesday. This was the second straight year that the Bulldogs had lost to their downstate foes by the 1-0 mark.
The Hoosiers had several scoring opportunities in the game, but didn't get on the board until the 85th minute. Kate Kastl sent a pass to the left, Jenny Mann took the pass and from eight yards out lifted the ball over Butler keeper Katie Sanders. Kastl and Mann both tallied three shots on the evening to lead IU.
The Bulldogs weren't without their opportunities, though, as on two occasions the Butler offense found a way to sneak through the cracks only to push their shots wide. The best opportunity was a one-on-one between Indiana keeper Shaunna Daugherty and Butler's Rachel Pivarnik. Pivarnik took the pass and tried to slide the shot by Daugherty, but the ball wide just to the right of the Hoosier post.
"We came out and played a great second half, especially after getting outplayed in the first half" said head coach Woody Sherwood. "It was unfortunate to lose on a goal so late in the game, but it was a good effort overall on our part."
Indiana outshot the Bulldogs 17-5 on the night, but Sanders was up to the challenge, tallying a career-high seven saves to keep the Bulldogs in the match. Krista Rott led the Bulldogs offensively with two shots, both of which were on-goal.
Butler will host Horizon League rival Youngstown State on Sunday (Nov. 3) at Varsity Field. The match, which is slated for 1 p.m., marks Senior Day for six Bulldogs - Hadiatu Dumbuya, Amy Morrison, Kristen Drogell, Clayr Mimikos, Sarah Schmidt and Martha Gudiel.
