Axewomen record first loss of 2015 season

SYDNEY, N.S. - The Cape Breton University Capers shot back into the win column Sunday with a convincing 4-0 win over the Acadia Axewomen in AUS women's soccer action in Sydney.

CBU improved to 4-1-1 on the season while Acadia dropped to 3-1-1 with their first loss of the season.

Keona Simmonds had her seventh goal of the season to remain tied for the AUS scoring lead with Axewoman Meghan Earle, while reigning AUS most valuable player Karolyne Blain picked up her fifth of the year.

Rookie Madison Goodliffe also scored for the Capers with an Acadia own goal rounding out the scoring.

Acadia head coach Amit Batra commented after the loss. "I don't have any doubts about the quality and ability of our team but the Capers deserve full credit as they took their opportunities and made us pay. Losing isn't the story – the story will be how we respond in training and what we do in the coming weeks."

Lysianne Trottier made six saves to record her third shutout of the season, while Emma Connell and Sarah Charnock combined to make eight saves for the Axewomen and each allowing two goals each.

The Capers will be in Newfoundland this weekend for a pair of games against the third-place Memorial Sea-Hawks. The Axewomen hope to get back on the winning track as they host Dalhousie this Friday evening and then travel to StFX on Sunday.
