The Tigers Soccer women won their first of two crucial games played last weekend by beating the SMU Huskies 1-0 on Friday, Oct. 16 at Wickwire Field. The win brought the Tigers’ record to 3-4-2 on the season, good for sixth place in the AUS but still one spot out of the playoffs, as last-place Moncton is the host.
The Tigers started fast in the match as Doriana Homerski made a nice move to her left foot to smash a strike for her second of the year and a 1-0 Tigers lead. Homerski was named the player of the match as she continued to put on offensive pressure for the rest of the match.
Homerski’s goal stood up for the Tigers as neither team would find the back of the net again in the match.
The Tigers worked 10 shots in the match to the Huskies 3. Katie Morgan made three saves for the clean-sheet.
