The women's soccer team split two games this week when they fell 5-0 to Indiana University and then came back to defeat Morehead State 2-1. Indiana scored four of their five goals in the first half against the Musketeers. The Hoosiers had
16 shots, 11 of which were on goal. All five goals were given up by sophomore keeper Katie Markesbery, but she gathered five saves in the match as well. The Musketeers collected 12 shots throughout the match and freshman forward Erin McGauley placed four of those 12 shots. Junior forward Ashton Green, freshman midfielder Catherine Allon and junior midfielder Bridget Tully each were able to put one shot on goal.
During Sunday's game against Morehead State, both teams were evenly matched. The Musketeers had the same number of shots and shots on goal as Morehead State. Each team ended with nine shots and five shots on goal. Morehead State struck first scoring in the sixth minute when a ball deflected off of a defender allowing for a goal. This was the only goal allowed in the game by the Musketeers. Markesbery was the starting keeper again in this match and allowed only one goal and made four saves. Tying the game in the 39th
minute was sophomore midfielder Margaret Woods on an assist from sophomore defender andmidfielder Alyssa Tindal. It was Tindal and Woods' only points in the game, but Woods was able tolead the Musketeers in shots during the match with three. Junior midfielder Taylor Dearbraugh led the team in shots on goal in the afternoon with two. At the 57:24 mark McGauley was able to beat a defender out front and score the go-ahead goal for Xavier. That was McGauley's only point in the game, the first goal of her collegiate career and a crucial goal for the victory. "This is a great game to build off of, help us continue to move forward and forget about Friday," McGauley said. The team will play the Eastern Kentucky Colonels at 7 p.m. on Sept. 12 at the Xavier Soccer Complex.
