Soccer Axewomen remain undefeated with tie vs MUN

WOLFVILLE, N.S.- Senior Striker Meghan Earle (Mount Pearl, Nfld.) netted her seventh goal of the regular season and tied the game at one at the 50th minute mark against the visiting Memorial Sea-Hawks to give the Axewomen soccer team the distinction of remaining undefeated in four games. The Axewomen's record improves to 3-0-1 - tied with StFX at the top of the AUS standings.

The Sea-Hawks struck first at the 24th minute when Emily Bailey (Mount Pearl, Nfld.) hammered home her second goal of the season to give Memorial a quick 1-0 lead.

While the first half was somewhat even with Acadia and Memorial balanced with opportunities, the second half saw good midfield control by the Axeowmen and several scoring chances that followed.

Outshooting Memorial 7-4 in the second half, Meghan Earle noted that the Axewomen pressured hard in the second half.  "we were pressing really high and Allie Scovil  (Hubley, N.S.) played it me while I was half turned and I played it to Gemma (LeBlanc) out on the wing and after a few touches she delivered the perfect ball for me to finish."

Earle, who leads the AUS in scoring with seven goals and an assist, will face the Cape Breton Capers this Sunday to wrap up the weekend. "It's been a great start but we have to build on it and we are focusing game to game. Playing against Cape Breton is always a battle for us and it's a physical game that we are really looking forward to."

The Sea-Hawks now sit in seventh spot in the AUs standings with a 1-0-2 record and face the 2-2-1 Dalhousie in their second of a three game weekend and wrap up on Sunday against the 1-3-1 Saint Mary's Huskies. The Axewomen, who are sitting in first place in the AUS standings with a 3-0-1 record, travel to Sydney, N.S. to take on the 3-1-1 Capers on Sunday.
