BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Senior goalkeeper Ryan Vint (Plymouth, Minn.) made a career-high 11 saves to lead the University of Wisconsin men's soccer team (1-6-2, 0-0-1 Big Ten) to a 1-1 double-overtime tie with Indiana (5-3-1, 1-0-1 Big Ten) on Sunday afternoon at IU's Armstrong Stadium.

"Obviously, Indiana is a very good team, and they were going to have periods of play, but I was very pleased with our guys that we were able to control periods of play as well," head coach John Trask said. "Every game we seem to be a little more dangerous moving forward with the ball. That hasn't amounted to a lot of goals yet, but in the game of soccer, you don't need a lot of goals. You just need goals at the right time."

• Badgers host Northern Illinois on Wednesday

Wisconsin took a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute when sophomore Kyle McCrudden (Wilmette, Ill.) sent in a free kick from just inside the IU half. Senior Jon Rzepka (Kentwood, Mich.) flicked a header on to freshman Chris Prince (Naperville, Ill.), who finished with a header of his own and beat Indiana keeper Luis Soffner inside the far post.

The Badgers held a 1-0 lead at halftime, despite being outshot 9-2 in the game's first 45 minutes. However, IU then tallied equalizer in the 52nd minute. Chris Estridge played a through ball from the right side of the field, and Harrison Pette slipped a low shot past Vint on the near post.

"The most important thing is still that we continue to get better," Trask said. "I wouldn't say it was a great night for Wisconsin soccer, but I don't know the last time a Wisconsin team came in [to Bloomington, Ind.] and tied Indiana. I also thought Ryan Vint had an excellent game for us tonight."

Vint and the Badger defense played solid as Indiana outshot UW 21-7, including a 10-2 advantage in the second half.

IU tested Wisconsin early. Estridge ripped a one-timer from six yards out just 11 minutes into the game, but Vint made the save. Less than one minute later, Vint smothered a second opportunity by Estridge, this time off a shot to Vint's left.

Both teams had opportunities late in the game. Freshman Nick Janus (Deer Park, Ill.) fired a shot wide with less than four minutes to play before Petts looked for his second goal of the game with 1:09 remaining in regulation. Vint made a diving save to send the game to overtime.

Indiana's Will Bruin pulled the trigger just 19 seconds into overtime, firing a shot from the top of the 18, but Vint again made the save. Freshman Paul Yonga (Brooklyn Park, Minn.) responded with a shot that went just high on the opposite end of the field less than two minutes later.

The Badgers had two corner kicks to open the second overtime, and redshirt freshman Derek Pitts (Middleton, Wis.) had the lone scoring opportunity of the final 10-minute period. Prince sent in a corner kick to Pitts, who connected on a header in the 107th minute, but Soffner was there to make the save.

Luke Goodnetter (Elm Grove, Wis.), Arnel Zahirovic (Noordwijk, The Netherlands) and Aaron Nichols (Woodstock, Ill.) joined Vint, McCrudden and Janus in playing all 110 minutes.

The Badgers host two games at the McClimon Complex this week. Wisconsin faces Northern Illinois (4-3-2, 0-1-0 Mid-American Conference) in a midweek game at 7 p.m. CT on Wednesday night before hosting Michigan (5-2-3, 1-1-0 Big Ten) at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.

Sunday's game marks the second annual PAC the MAC doubleheader. The UW women's team kicks off the event, hosting Illinois at noon before the Badger men host Michigan at 2:30 p.m. Kids will receive free admission by wearing their youth team soccer jersey to the game.
