CHICAGO - Saint Xavier University senior forward Kelly Steinhaus (Lemont, Ill./Lemont) found a hole in the defense and capitalized on it with the game-winning goal in the 62nd minute of play during a 1-0 victory over University of Saint Francis (Ind.) Friday afternoon at Bruce R. Deaton Memorial Field in Chicago. Steinhaus was able to beat her defender and broke free for a powerful shot that sailed just past the USF's goalie's outstretched hands and into the lower left corner of the net. Sophomore midfielder Tammy Contorno (Lemont, Ill./Lemont) provided the game-winning assist for the Cougars on the score.

SXU was extremely aggressive offensively throughout Friday's game taking 25 total shots, including 18 on goal. Saint Francis keeper Kari Baughn was impressive in front of the net stopping 17 of the shot attempts to finish with 17 saves. Saint Xavier keeper Ashley Shugar (Lake Orion, Mich./Western Illinois University/Lake Orion) was impressive in her own right notching her third shutout of the season behind eight saves on the afternoon. Steinhaus and junior forward Larissa Jondle (Lincoln, Neb./Saint Pius X) each paced the Cougars with four shots-on-goal Friday.
