CINCINNATI - The Xavier men's soccer team opened its difficult spring schedule by playing to a 1-1 draw against Bowling Green at the XU Soccer Complex on Saturday afternoon.

Will Walker tallied the score for the Musketeers in the second of three 30-minutes periods played. Head coach Andy Fleming played nearly his entire roster in the team's first match since falling to eventual national champion Indiana in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Xavier had a chance late in the match after a foul just outside the penalty box. Gino De Paoli struck a bending free kick but narrowly missed the far post.
