Record breaking crowd, check! Cheering on the Dawgs at home, check! Beating Indiana University in the second straight sport we played, check! What more could I ask for? What a game by the Butler men’s soccer team who knocked off the defending National Champions, Indiana University. The Bulldogs came firing out of the gates with the closest chance in the first period with a shot ricocheting off the cross bar. The second period was quite opposite with the Hoosiers almost doubling the Bulldogs’ shot attempts. The Hoosiers were able to find the back of the net twice early, which sent some fans home early, but the Bulldogs still had some fight left in them. With four minutes left, Butler finished a goal within five yards in the box, giving them slim hope and revitalizing the crowd. Butler went on the offensive once again and tied the game up with just two minute left in the match and took a HUGE moment swing into extra time. Butler was able to finish the Hoosiers off in a Butler Bowl instant classic with a picture perfect header from Freshman David Goldsmith. Knocking teams off just seems to be the Butler Way. Once again, we showed people it is not the size of the dog in the fight; it’s the size of fight in the Dawg!
