Flames Tie at Dakota Wesleyan

On Sunday, Auguest 31, CSM and Dakota Wesleyan battled to a 1-1 tie.

Katie Archibald scored about halfway into the first half from a nice through ball from Melissa King (or "Kingy" as Neil has been calling her lately.) Katie placed the ball nicely past the keeper with the blue mohawk after King sprung her free into the box.

In the second half we gave up a free kick about 30 yards out. We were unable to clear it and DWU was able to tie the score. The rest of the game was back and forth with each team having periods of time with a lot of possession. In overtime it appeared that DWU scored, but the goal was called back for an offside violation.

CSM got the best of the shot total 28-11. Melissa King had 12, out shooting the entire DWU team. Archibald, Withey, and Cross each had 4 shots added to King's 12 with 4 others filling in to get the 28 shots total. 16 of those on goal.

Swanger had 4 saves, Jones had 4. Swanger made a fantastic save on the line to save a goal.

Thanks to all who attended!
