Jun 02, 2019  

In what was a great display of soccer, the New England Mutiny and Connecticut Fusion played to a 1-1 draw on Saturday night at Lusitano Stadium. The home side drew first blood in the 49' as Kate Howarth scored her 55th goal as a member of the New England Mutiny. Zoe Steck would send the Mutiny's all-time leading scorer in alone on the Fusion goalkeeper and the striker capitalized for the 1-0  advantage. The Fusion tied the game in the 61' on a set piece just outside the 18 yard box to tie it 1-1 and that was the final result in the match. Colombian National Team goalkeeper Catalina Perez had 4 saves for the Mutiny while Connecticut's Allie Auger stopped 6 shots.

"The game was an excellent matchup between two strong teams. The Fusion proved to be great competition and forced us to be on our toes at all times. I was very pleased with our play allowing just the one goal on a set play. Our players proved to be resilient and adaptable throughout the match," stated Mutiny head coach Jeb Booth. "I also want to point out that it was a great environemt at our home field and the large crowd provided great atmosphere that players on both sides appreciated," added Booth.

Each team team could have walked away with the victory as Brooke Murphy hit the crossbar in the 22' of the first half and the Fusion's Chanel Johnson also struck the bar for Connecticut in the 38'. The Mutiny outshot the Fusion by a 7-5 margin. 20 fouls were whistled in the intense matchup of the border rivals. The Mutiny will return to Lusitano Stadium as the Mutiny turn its attention a home game  on Saturday against the Worcester Smiles. Kickoff is at 7:00pm.
