Box Score

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - Southeast Missouri State soccer opened a three-match homestand tonight with a 2-0 victory over Austin Peay in a Ohio Valley Conference match at Houck Stadium. The Redhawks improved their record to 6-2-1 on the year, while the Lady Govs saw their season record fall to 5-6 (0-2).

The home team notched an early 1-0 lead in the 10th minute when freshman forward Ashley Runion (St. Peters, MO/Ft. Zumwalt South) scored her team-leading seventh goal of the season off a pass by sophomore forward Courtney Alexander (Liberty, MO/Liberty). Southeast held a commanding 12-1 shooting advantage for the half.

The score stayed the same until the 79th minute when junior forward Nicole Bussman (Port Orchard, WA/South Kitsap) gave herself an early 21st birthday present after scoring a goal off a rebound during a corner kick to provide the final margin.

The Redhawks finished with a 21-5 lead in shots and a 7-1 margin in corner kicks. Alexander led Southeast with five shots, while Runion and senior midfielder Margie Schaeffler (St. Louis, MO/Incarnate Word) added four shot attempts, respectively. Senior goalkeeper Lindsay Pickering (St. Charles, MO/St. Charles West) tallied five saves in recording her fourth shutout of the season.

Austin Peay was paced by junior Ashley Beck's two shot attempts and sophomore Michelle Smith's match-high nine saves.

Southeast concludes the weekend with an OVC contest against Tennessee Tech on Sunday afternoon with the kickoff scheduled for 2 p.m.
