Box Score

Butler scored four times in the first 25 minutes and coasted home with a 4-0 victory over host Xavier in a non-league, men's soccer match at the Xavier University Soccer Complex on Sunday, Sept. 26. The victory was the fifth in a row for the Bulldogs and lifted coach Joe Sochacki's club to 6-3 on the season. Xavier fell to 2-6.

Senior David Wyrick notched the game-winner just over eight minutes into the match. He took a cross from junior John Mariscalco and fired a shot inside the far post. It was his third goal of the season.

The Bulldogs made it 2-0 four minutes later on a goal by senior Cory Edgington from the top of the box. Senior Andrew Pancio picked up his 16th career assist on the score. Pancio then scored an unassisted goal from the top of the box at 19:48 to make it 3-0.

Junior Scott Olsen closed Butler's scoring burst with an unassisted goal at 24:07. His shot was inside the far post from eight yards out. It was his third goal of the week and his team-leading fifth of the season. Olsen paced Butler's 12-shot attack with five shots, including four shots on goal.

Sochacki cleared his bench, playing 22 different players in the match, and he split goalkeeper duties between senior Evan Reinardt and sophomore Frank Peabody. Reinhardt finished with two saves, while Peabody had four.

The Bulldogs will return to league play on Thursday, Sept. 30, with a match at Wright State. The contest at Wright State's Alumni Field is slated for 7 p.m. (EDT).
