Rockets and Cardinals in a scoreless tie at half-time at Scott Park.

Very up-tempo game, with lots of scoring chances on both sides. Rockets had a goal called back on an off-sides, and BSU put one off the cross-bar.

Hanna Scafaria got a pretty goal early in the 2nd, to give the Rockets a 1-0 lead.

She had another goal called back later, on a hand ball. BSU responded hitting their 2nd cross-bar of the match, but couldn't put the ball past the keeper.

Rockets still lead by 1 with about 20 minutes left.

Rockets kinda went in a prevent defense in the final 20, and it backfires. BSU scores to tie it with 7 minutes left.

RE: UT Soccer 2017
Scary moment earlier when BSU player made a strong run to the far post on a nice cross, and ended up crashing into the post. Was down for a while, but seems to be ok. Fortunately for UT the ball stayed out of the net on the play.

Still scoreless after the 1st OT, thanks to a great diving save by Rocket Keeper Maddie Perrin

No score in OT #2, and the Rockets come away with a 1-1 tie.

Gutsy performance by the Rockets. BSU was much, much faster and put pressure on the Rockets all day long.

This Rockets team plays back in a defensive shell much of the time. That can work, but when you allow 21 shots, like today it's tough to keep the ball out of the net for 90 ... or 110 minutes. Also, if you play that way, you have to be calm and no turn the ball over, but the Rockets have a tendency to panic and give away the ball, even when they have some time to make a better play. Rocket keeper Perrin had an outstanding game. Hanna Scafaria provided some really good offense at times, but unfortunately there aren't many other players up front to help. Coming away with a win and a tie on the opening weekend is good, but Miami and BSU are not the upper echelon teams of the MAC. It will be interesting to see if the Rockets can continue to improve and get some wins against the better teams.

I was at the first half of the BSU match and just melted in that heat. Ended in a 1-1 tie.
