Over the weekend Butler Men’s Club Soccer hosted a round robin on campus with Ball State and Bellarmine. Butler went 1-0-1 with a tie against Ball State (1-1) and a win over Bellarmine (4-0). Captain and President, Austin Powell (JR), scored a free kick goal with 3 seconds left on the clock to escape with a tie against Ball State. Alex Reinke (FR), Viktor Stepjic (SO), Ryan Toering (FR), and Zach Towle (SR) all got their names on the scoresheet with a goal each vs. Bellarmine. Brendan Spencer (JR) also gets credited with a shutout vs Bellarmine with half a dozen saves. Good showing as we head in to the IM leagues time of the year, good luck to all our players who are playing! #DawgsNeverRest
When it’s this nice out in the middle of winter, its impossible to stay inside. #NoOffSeason
While practices and games are not being held, Butler soccer still chooses to train for next fall by playing indoor leagues to stay in shape and get touches on the ball, along with possibly playing spring friendlies with other schools. We are still in search of a coach, if anyone knows someone who might be interested in this position please go to the contact page and contact our President! We hope to hear from you!
Over the weekend, our men’s club soccer team participated in the NIRSA Open National Tournament in Gulf Shores, Alabama. We finished 1-2 in our group and lost to James Madison who took home 2nd place in the tournament. We beat Colorado College 3-2 with our president and captain, Austin Powell, scoring the first two goals as well as our treasurer and senior captain, Zach Towle, scoring a late chip to seal the game in his final club game. Congrats to the boys who made the trip down there and thanks to everyone who made the trip possible! We hope to be in this tournament again next year, but hopefully in the Championship Series. Go Dawgs!
