(LIMA) - Two state ranked teams left the pitch after a 1-1 tie Saturday. Bluffton, ranked #2 in Division III and Shawnee, ranked #11 in Division II, left it all on the field in a physical, well played match between two playoff tested teams. Bluffton made it all the way to the 2019 State Final and Shawnee saw its 19-0 perfect season come to an end in the Regional seminfinals last season. By all accounts, both teams look ready for another deep tournament run.
Shawnee took the lead on a goal at the 15' mark. After a few good chances, Jonathan Schriner finished a Thad Mittendorf pass with just seconds remaining in the first half to knot the score at 1-1. Neither team would find the net in the second half.
Shawnee held a slight 5-3 edge in shots on goal.
Bluffton remains undefeated on the season at 12-0-2 while Shawnee is 11-2-1.
