Box Score

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - Freshman forward Ashley Runion (St. Peters, MO/Ft. Zumwalt South) tallied her first career hat trick and produced two assists in leading Southeast Missouri State to capture a 9-0 road win at Eastern Kentucky this afternoon in an Ohio Valley Conference contest. The Redhawks improve to 5-2-1 (2-0) with the win, while the Colonels saw their season record fall to 1-7-2 (0-2-0).

Junior defender Megan McGrath (Hawthorn Woods, IL/Carmel) gave Southeast an early 1-0 lead with a goal in the eighth minute. Sophomore forward Courtney Alexander (Liberty, MO/Liberty) tallied a goal in the 23rd minute off an assist from Runion, who scored goals in the 27th and 29th minutes. McGrath scored her second goal of the half in the 43rd minute as the Redhawks entered halftime with a 5-0 lead.

In the second half, senior midfielder Margie Schaeffler (St. Louis, MO/Incarnate Word) scored off a Runion pass that hiked the visitors' advantage to 6-0, while Runion scored again in the 54th minute for a 7-0 Redhawk lead. Freshman goalkeeper Jessica Beckham (St. Louis, MO/Incarnate Word) and freshman defender Kristi Frick (Villa Ridge, MO/Washington) scored their first collegiate goals in the 63rd minute and 71st minutes, respectively, to close the scoring.

Southeast produced an 18-14 advantage in shot attempts and EKU held a slim 4-3 margin in corner kicks for the match. McGrath finished with a pair of goals and Alexander tallied a goal with an assist for the Redhawks. Senior goalkeeper Lindsay Pickering (St. Charles, MO/St. Charles West) recorded a match-best 10 saves to become the OVC's all-time leader in shutouts as she notched her 23 rd career shutout, eclipsing the previous mark of 22.7 that was held by former Eastern Illinois goalkeeper Tiffany Groene.
