CHICAGO - Behind four goals from sophomore forward Maya Swartz (Bethel, Ohio/Bethel), the Saint Xavier University women's soccer team picked up a 13-0 victory over visiting Calumet College of St. Joseph (Ind.) in Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) action Saturday afternoon at Bruce R. Deaton Memorial Field in Chicago. The Cougars (4-5-1 overall/2-0 CCAC) led 6-0 at halftime and added seven more goals in the second half for the big victory.
In addition to Swartz, several other SXU players had a big game Saturday against the Crimson Wave.

Senior keepers Nikki Grant (Lemont, Ill./Lemont) and Kim Pavel (Crown Point, Ind./Crown Point) shared the shutout, but had no saves as CCSJ did not have any shots-on-goal.
