Alexander 3 Holley 1

By Chad Flint

 Alexander knocked off 2 time defending league champion Holley Wednesday evening 3-1 in the first game on their new field.  It was Alexander's first win over Holley in over 2 years.

Alexander opened the scoring in the 18th minute as Senior Forward Megan Schmieder finished off a pass from Sophomore midfielder Abby Shilvock to make the score 1-0.  Holley tied it in the 34th minute on a corner kick.  Alexander nearly went back on top as Schmieder had a breakaway but failed to get a shot off before the Holley keeper slid to knock the ball off her feet.

In the 2nd half Alexander had the majority of the possession but could not convert any of their chances.  Senior Midfielder Tessa Bigelow took a pass from Senior Midfielder Claire Hartl but rang her shot off the crossbar to keep the score tied at 1.  In the 75th minute of the game Junior Forward Julia Pettys knocked in a rebound of her own shot to put Alexander back on top (her 5th goal of the season).  In the 78th minute Shilvock ripped a 30 yard shot into the top corner to put the game out of reach.

Alexander's Senior Keeper Hannah Wilson picked up her 2nd win of the season with 8 stops in goal.

Alexander's record is now 2-0-1 overall and 1-0 in the league.  Holley drops to 0-1.

Alexander's next game is Friday on the road @ Attica at 4:30pm.  Attica is 2-0 coming into the game.
