Xavier freshman Brittany Green scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner, as the Musketeer women's soccer team defeated the visiting Saint Louis Billikens 4-3 on Friday night at the Xavier University Soccer Complex.

Xavier raised its record to 1-3 in the Atlantic 10 Conference and 6-8 overall, while Saint Louis fell to 2-2 in the Atlantic 10 and 7-3-2 overall. Xavier, which is 6-0 at home this season, won for the eighth straight time at home dating back to last season.

Saint Louis struck first in the match just 8:33 into the action as Dee Guempel took a volley from Julia Brandenberg and nailed a shot from 15 yards out.

Xavier answered the SLU goal less than five minutes later as junior Allison Osborne collected a deflected shot and punched it into the back of the net from five yards out to tie the score at 1-1 at the 13:13 mark. Sophomore Carissa Gilbert earned an assist on the play.

The Musketeers took their first lead of the match at 15:31 when sophomore Sara Doutt scored on a header off a long cross and assist from sophomore Melissa Zimmerman. XU extended the lead to two goals at 3-1 as freshman Brittany Green found the net from five yards out at 24:11. Senior Angie Scarlato set up Green with a long cross and earned an assist on the play. Green's goal was the third of three unanswered goals by the Musketeers over an 11-minute stretch.

The Billikens cut the XU advantage in half before halftime when Lauren Bozesky scored at the 41:51 mark. Xavier took a 3-2 advantage into the locker room at halftime.

Saint Louis wasted little time in scoring the game-tying goal in the second half, with Kelly Waeckerle finding the back of the net from 10 yards out at 49:04.

 

 

Green scored what proved to be the game-winner at 60:40 as she drilled a free kick from just outside the box and over the outstretched arms of Saint Louis goalkeeper Hannah Koesterer.

Xavier got plenty of big performances tonight, including a career-high 11 save performance from freshman goalkeeper Kelly Farrell.

Xavier is home again on Sunday to host Atlantic 10 Conference foe Duquesne at 1 p.m.
