Soccer draws at Illinois State

NORMAL — Freshman Nicole Breece scored off a pass from Niki Read in the first half, and the Illini earned a draw against fellow NCAA tourney team Illinois State on Sunday.

The No. 19 Illini outshot the Redbirds 7-2. Illinois State got on the board first, scoring on a penalty kick. Illinois answered five minutes later.

“We had a few opportunities to end the game early and was disappointed that we didn’t take advantage,” interim Illini coach Jeff Freeman said.
