Women’s soccer topples X-Women
No. 10 nationally ranked Tigers now 5 – 1
Dalhousie’s women’s soccer team travelled Friday evening to take on fourth place St. FX; the Tigers themselves were tied for first place.
With a tight race atop the AUS, the game was sure to be an exciting contest, and this was not a disappointment. The fast-paced game ended in a 4 – 1 victory for the black and gold.
It is the Tigers fifth consecutive win after losing their season opener to UPEI.
Dal’s forwards were an oppressive presence on the opposition, dominating play for the majority of the game. Doriana Homerski, Biannca Jakisa, Rieka Santilli and Daphne Wallace provided Dal’s goals. The assists were contributed by Joanna Blodgett, Homerski and Megan Willox.
Stephanie Cameron, assisted by Maura Woodman, scored the lone goal for St. FX. The tally tied the game at one midway through the first half.
In further action, the Tigers face the Cape Breton Capers Saturday at 3 p.m. Dal beat the defending champs on home turf last weekend 3 – 2.

CORRECTION: In a previous version of this brief, we said the Tigers were up 6-1, in their sixth consecutive win. Up 5-1, in their fifth consecutive win is correct. The Gazette regrets the error.
