Munster, Ind. – A goal by freshman forward Kami Graber in the 26th minute of play provided the only scoring of the game as Purdue University-Calumet (Ind.) stunned Saint Xavier University, 1-0, in Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference (CCAC) women's soccer action Saturday night at the Munster High School soccer field in Munster, Ind. It was the first victory of the season for the host Peregrines, who improved to 1-9 overall on the year. The Cougars fall to 3-6-1 this season with the loss and now sit at 1-3-0 in conference play. The game started over two hours past its original start time of 5 p.m. due to thunderstorms moving through the area Saturday evening.
SXU was limited to just four shots on goal in Saturday's game. Freshman keeper Alex Perry (St. Louis, Mo./Oakville) recorded four saves as the starter between the posts for the Cougars. Junior midfielder Caytin Lewin provided the assist on the go-ahead goal for Purdue-Calumet.
Saint Xavier (3-6-1 overall/1-3-0 CCAC) begins a three-game conference home stand on Wednesday, October 9, with a game against Trinity International University (Ill.). The game is scheduled for a 6 p.m. start at Bruce R. Deaton Memorial Field in Chicago.
