Women’s soccer sweeps weekend matches


The Butler women’s soccer team will head into Friday’s home game against Seattle with a 4-1 record after winning two games over the weekend.

The Bulldogs beat Bowling Green 2-1 in overtime on Saturday behind goals from sophomore Sophie Maccagnone and junior Kelly Mahoney.

Maccagnone scored less than 10 minutes after the Falcons got on the board early in the second half.

Mahoney’s eventual game-winner was a header off a corner kick that came in the 99th minute.

On Monday night, the Bulldogs beat Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne 2-0 with early goals from junior Elise Kotsakis and Maccagnone.

Maccagnone, a preseason All-Big East midfielder, scored her second and third goals of the season. She also picked up her fourth assist of the season on Kostakis’s goal.

Senior goaltender Julie Burton turned away all four shots she faced, picking up her second shutout of the season.

Butler takes its four-game win streak into the game against Seattle at home Friday night at 7 p.m. The Redhawks, members of the Western Athletic Conference, bring in a 2-1 record.

The Bulldogs host the Eastern Michigan Eagles in game two of a three-game home stand on Sunday at 1 p.m. The Eagles are 1-2, coming off of back-to-back overtime losses at Ohio State and Michigan. They play at Indiana University Friday night before visiting Indianapolis.
