Women's soccer nets road wins

The Xavier women's soccer team ended last weekend with a loss to Ball State in double overtime. The energy they kept throughout the long game carried over into their most recent game against IUPUI, where they shut them out 3-0.
The game was played through some effects of Hurricane Isaac as the storm passed over.
Not only did this produce extreme playing conditions, but it also forced the officials to call the game with 4:44 remaining in the second half.
Xavier was able to place 15 shots, seven of which were on goal.
The Musketeers were able to hold the Jaguars to only nine shots on goal, a major improvement defensively compared to last week's games.
Freshman midfielder Catherine Allon was the first player to score for Xavier off a cross from sophomore midfielder Margaret Woods. These were Woods's and Allon's only points in the game.
Before the end of the first half, junior midfielder Taylor Dearbaugh scored her only goal of the afternoon and her first of the season. This goal gave the Musketeers a two goal lead.
The top performer of the game for the Musketeers was junior midfielder Mariah Whitaker. She was able to score one goal early in the second half and dished the assist during Dearbaugh's goal.
Sophomore keeper Katie Markesbery gained her second win of the season when she saved three goals in the match.
"For us to get a shut out and do something we don't do a lot of, which is put three goals up is a big accomplishment," head coach Woody Sherwood said.
The team truly did show resilience during this game after losing two the week before. During the previous two games, the team gave up a combined 23 shots on goal, five goals and scored one goal.
In the game against IUPUI this past week the Musketeers only allowed three shots on goal, allowed no goals and scored three goals.
The Musketeers continued their success on the road, notching a 1-0 victory over the Northern Kentucky Norse on Tuesday night.
