WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Midwestern State saw its win streak come to an end Thursday night as the third-ranked Mustangs played Lubbock Christian to a 1-1 draw in a heated battle at Stang Park.

Midwestern State (10-0-1, 6-0-1 HC) looked to be on its way to an 11th-straight victory until Lubbock Christian's (4-6-1, 3-3-1 HC) Corey Hutchison struck for his first goal of the season with two minutes remaining in regulation with a rocket that sailed over senior goalkeeper Richard Goss from just outside the box for a 1-1 contest.

A red card issued to LCU's Mohammed Busaidy with 42 seconds to play forced the Chaps to play a man down for the final 20 minutes as the Mustangs outshot LCU 6-0 in the extra periods but were unable to record the golden goal.

Senior midfielder Pierre Bocquet broke a scoreless match in the 70th minute with a strike from the left post off a corner kick from freshman midfielder Carlos Flores for his fifth score of the season.

The Chaps offense was limited the entire match as the Mustangs controlled a majority of the possession. The MSU defense held LCU to just two shots on goal in five attempts while the Mustangs fired off a season-high 27 shots with eight on frame.

The Mustangs took a three-point lead in the Heartland Conference race Thursday with a 6-0-1 mark as second place St. Edward's suffered its first defeat, to Texas A&M International, 2-1 for a 5-1-1 league record.

Midwestern State wraps up its homestand Saturday with a 1 p.m. kickoff against UT Permian Basin at Stang Park.
