In Pictures: Western Michigan Broncos vs. Toledo Rockets

The Broncos played to a tie against MAC West rival Toledo on Sunday afternoon, and we have the pictures to prove it.

The Western Michigan Broncos played host to the Toledo Rockets on Sunday afternoon, with both teams taking home points after a 1-1 tie.

The match was scoreless until the 57th minute of the proceedings, when Suzuna Shibukawa bounced a low shot off a Rocket defender from the service of a Katie Schumacher corner kick to put the Broncos up 1-0.

The Rockets came back in the 76th minute, when Ellie Pool scored a screamer of a first career goal, converting a pass from outside the box into a high corner goal to even the score.

From there, both teams exchanged shots which ultimately didn’t hit target, resulting in a draw after regulation and two overtime periods.

The result moves WMU to a 2-1-2 mark, while the Rockets grab their first positive result of the season, moving to 0-4-1 after Pool’s late heroics to draw back points.

WMU will be back in action against Eastern Michigan in Ypsilanti at 1 p.m. EST this Sunday, while Toledo travels to DeKalb to take on Northern Illinois at 5 p.m. EST for an evening game on Sunday.
