Halifax, NS - Two first-half goals Sunday afternoon saw the StFX X-Women defeat the Saint Mary's Huskies 2-0 in Atlantic University Sport women's soccer action from Huskies Stadium.

Megan Frost (Ottawa. ON) received a chip shot pass from the X midfield and her attempt to cross the ball deflected off SMU goalie Ashley Blank's (Dartmouth, NS) right hand and found the net to Blank's surprise in the 12th minute.

Midfielder Larissa White (Westphal, NS) beat Blank from 35-yards out low to the left corner in the 41st minute to extend the X Women lead to 2-0, the score that stuck for the victory.

White also assisted on the first StFX goal and for her efforts was named Subway Player of the Game.

The X-Women improve to 4-2-3 with 15 points on the season.

Whitby, Ont. native Erin Visser (4-0-1) picked up the win in nets for StFX while Blank and the Huskies drop to 0-9-0 on the year.

Each goalie made two saves in the match while StFX led in shots (12-4) and corner kicks (5-4).

Both teams return to action October 21-22 when StFX play host to Mount Allison (1-8-0) Saturday and Dalhousie (5-2-1) Sunday, while SMU hits the road and plays UNB (2-4-3) Saturday and Moncton (4-4-0) Sunday.
