Alexander has moved their record to 8-0-2 overall and 7-0-1 in the league with a 1-1 tie at home against Wheatland-Chili and a 5-0 win in Kendall (in a game that was scheduled to be at Alexander but was moved to Kendall due to the field conditions at Alexander.
Tuesday Alexander and Wheatland faced off in a battle of the top 2 teams in the Genesee Region to this point in the year. Wheatland got ahead 13 minutes from halftime with a goal off a corner kick and took control of the game for the final portion of the half. In the 2nd half the momentum clearly switched to Alexander's side and they held a majority of the 40 minutes of action in the Wheatland half of the field and finally cashed in as Sophomore Midfielder Rebecca Bykowski netted her first varsity goal off an assist from Sophomore Midfielder Abby Shilvock. The game would go to OT and Alexander would continue to dominate possession but was unable to find the net again and the game ended in a 1-1 tie.
Freshman GK Jess DeAngelo played the first 75 minutes and made 1 save, Senior GK Hannah Wilson played the final 25 and didn't have to make a save.
Thursday Alexander traveled to Kendall due to the fields at Alexander not dealing with all the rain this week and faced off against a strong Kendall squad and came away with a 5-0 win. Junior Forward Julia Pettys scored 2 goals in the first 20 minutes of the game (both assisted by Sophomore Midfielder Abby Shilvock) to put Alexander up 2-0. Shilvock then converted a pass from Senior Forward Megan Schmieder to make it 3-0 before halftime. Early in the 2nd half Senior Midfielder converted a cross from Pettys to make it 4-0 and late in the game Shilvock converted a rebound of a Schmieder shot to make the final tally 5-0.
