The Xavier women's soccer

team defeated Saint Louis University 1-0 on Sunday's Senior Day, to record their second Atlantic 10 victory of the season.

Seniors Andi Meyer, Jessica Brooks, Chelsea Burns and Melanie McLaughlin were honored

before the game.

Junior Brett Sweeney scored the only goal of the game in the 85th minute. It was her first career goal.

Sweeney scored on the corner

kick by sophomore Mariah Whitaker. It was Whitaker's second

assist this season.

Seniors Brooks and McLaughlin and junior Leslie Boersma each posted one shot, but it was junior Leslie Twehue's that led Xavier with three attempted shots.

Freshman goalkeeper Katie Markesbery secured the win with two saves in 77th minute, and junior

Jennifer Peri had two saves in 13 minutes.

"Finishing the season with a win and a goal off of a corner kick was definitely rewarding," head coach Andy Sherwood said.

With this victory, the Musketeers are 7-8-3 on the season,

2-5-2 in A-10 play and pushed SLU to 5-10-3 overall with a 3-5-1 record in A-10 play.
