CORAL GABLES, Fla.-The University of Miami soccer team opened the 2003 season with a 1-0 overtime win over Indiana at the Florida Atlantic tournament in Boca Raton, Fla. Friday night.

Britney Butcher (Bothell, Wash.) scored the game-winner on a pass from Lindsey Yach (Carrollton, Texas) just 1:22 into overtime.

“I thought we played well overall, Indiana was a really good team as far as being organized and took some dangerous chances which forced us to make some adjustments and I thought the players adjusted well,” said head coach Tricia Taliaferro.

Butcher and Yach return as Miami’s top two scorers from last season, Butcher scored an individual season record 16 goals last season, while Yach scored nine goals as a freshman.

“I am very pleased overall, I thought Britney Butcher contributed allot and we had a couple of freshman come in and contribute, Kristen Champan, Sheuneen Ta and Julie Brooks did well for us, our back line was solid once again.”

The Hurricanes took six shots on goal.

The Hurricanes complete the FAU tournament Sunday at 2 p.m. taking on Loyola.
