Rochester, MN - In what at times was a steady rain and at other times was a downpour the RCTC Yellowjacket soccer team played to a 1-1 draw with Faith Baptist College out of Iowa. The Yellowjackets (playing short-handed due to injury), controlled the pace of play for significant portions of the game and got solid goalkeeping from Sydney Vrieze.
The Yellowjackets took a 1-0 lead into halftime on a goal by Kallie Keller late in the half. Keller's goal came on a feed from Mackenzie Swanson-Larson. The Jackets counter-attck lead to several good scoring chance in the second half that could have pushed the lead to 2 or 3. With only 4 minutes remaining in the game Faith Baptist finally found a way to beat Vrieze, as a high ball took an awkard bounce on the turf and fell to the Faith forward who tucked it in to the corner of the net.
Vrieze finished the game with 10 saves on 11 shots.
