INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – The Green Bay women’s soccer team struck first in the match but couldn’t hold on to the lead as it finished in a 1-1 draw with IUPUI on Friday evening.

“We were the better team tonight, but just missed some great opportunities,” said head coach Trevor Warren. “For our first game of the season and being away from home we were able to control the match with possession and create opportunities, but they were just off the mark.”

Green Bay came out of the gates strong, putting three shots on the board early to set the tempo. Momentum changed to favor the host team as the Jaguars had five shot attempts before Hekla Palmadottir (Akranes, Iceland) put an end to the threat with a shot in the 29th minute that forced IUPUI keeper Giselle Guzman into a save situation.

Palmadottir finally connected in the 32nd minute, collecting a pass from Heidi Hartmann (Plymouth Minn.) and chipping the ball from just inside the 18 for her first goal of the season. Green Bay maintained the advantage going into the break, while also owning a 9-6 advantage in shots.

Tori Minnich drew the equalizer in the 56th minute, tapping in a shot at the far post that found the back of the net to leave the score at 1-1.

Looking to score the equalizer less than a minute later, Ahna Logan (Roseville, Minn.) sent a header over the goal line off a corner kick by Katie Schulz (Plymouth, Minn.), but the goal was disallowed as Logan was charged with goalkeeper obstruction.

Neither team was able to capitalize down the stretch, sending the match to extra minutes and eventually the draw.

Despite the even score the Phoenix dominated the shot column, outshooting the Jaguars, 21-12, including 11-2 in the second half. Nastacia Behle (St. Paul, Mo.) started the match and also played both overtime sessions for Green Bay, posting six saves. Katy Pilarzyk (Madison, Wis.) stood in net for the second half, allowing one goal.

The Phoenix return to the pitch on Sunday, traveling to Ball State for a noon affair. Live stats and live audio will be available for the match.
