No. 10 Rockhurst 2, Bellarmine 2
LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- In a physical match drenched by rain and delayed by lightning, Bellarmine fought back from a two-goal deficit to claim a 2-2 tie with the 10th-ranked Rockhurst Hawks.
In the first half of play, Rockhurst (3-1-1, 2-0-1 GLVC) jumped out to a quick start. Four shots by the Hawks in the first nine minutes challenged the Bellarmine defense to maintain the 0-0 scoreline early.
In the 19th minute, attacking pressure by the Hawks and junior midfielder Lucas De Rossi took a rebound off of a save by Bellarmine junior goalkeeper Blake Hunter and put it into the net to claim a 1-0 Rockhurst lead.
Bellarmine (3-1-1, 1-1-1 GLVC) fought back. Junior forward Kai Qualah's bicycle kick sailed wide of the frame in the 30th minute and a pair of corner kicks for the Knights created opportunities late in the half, but none resulted in a goal.
The beginning of the second half yielded similar results. Just three minutes after the whistle blew for the start of the second half, Rockhurst notched its second goal of the evening on an easy score for senior forward Mark Magee.
Bellarmine's pressure paid off late in the second period. With 10:15 left in the game, a throw in from the right side fell to freshman defender Zach Digan who tucked the ball into the goal past Hawks senior goalkeeper Ryan Bass for the Knights' first goal of the game, making the score 2-1.
Just a minute later, Qualah skied for another ball in the air and headed it back over the goalkeeper and into the net to tie the game at two.
