Butler shocks Indiana with late comeback before record crowd

[COLLEGE MEN: Wednesday] A record crowd of 5,029 fans at the Butler Bowl watched the No. 21 Bulldogs rally from 2-0 down with less than four minutes to play in regulation and go on to beat defending national champion Indiana, 3-2, on freshman David Goldsmith's winner in the 104th minute.

Freshman Tommy Thompson set up Femi Hollinger-Janzen for the first IU goal in the 52nd minute and added the second goal himself 10 minutes later. But the Bulldogs got a goal back from Jordan Burt, with less than four minutes to play and Goldsmith tied things up in the 89th minute on a header.

"The first one was tremendous," said Butler coach Paul Snape. "Jordan Burt is one the hardest working players in the country. He got us back in it."

Goldschmidt won the game with his seventh goal of the season on a header.

"Goal scorers turn up in the big games and that's what he did tonight," Snape said of the Englishman.
