The Butler men’s soccer team hosted St. Louis in an exhibition match Sunday and came away with a 4-2 victory.
The Bulldogs took an early lead with first-half goals from freshman Zach Steinberger and sophomore newcomer Nico Oliverio.
“We are usually a team that likes coming from behind, so to get that early lead was crucial,” Steinberger said.
Steinberger added another goal in the second half to push Butler to a 3-0 lead.
The Billikens then tallied two quick goals to cut the Bulldogs’ lead to one.
Oliverio came through again after the St. Louis goals, scoring his second goal of the game and giving Butler a 4-2 lead.
The Bulldogs will continue their spring season with another exhibition match Friday.
This time, Butler will face Michigan State in Fort Wayne.
