Truro Daily News - - SPORTS -

BI­BLE HILL, N.S. – For Shan­ice Maxwell, it’s good to be home. Af­ter spend­ing four years with the Cape Bre­ton Ca­pers AUS women’s soc­cer team, Maxwell joined Dal-AC this fall and has been a key con­trib­u­tor for the first-place Rams.

“It’s great to be able to play at home,” said Maxwell, a Truro na­tive and for­mer high school soc­cer stand­out at CEC. “I heard that we were go­ing to have a strong team … so I said, why not, I might as well give it all I got for my last year, and now I’m here at my home pitch, so it’s awe­some.” Maxwell grad­u­ated from CBU with a recre­ational lead­er­ship de­gree two years ago. She at­tended hair dress­ing school last year, and jumped at the chance to join the Rams this sea­son when con­tacted by coach Jackie Ryan. Maxwell’s ex­ten­sive re­sume in­cludes an AUS ti­tle with the Ca­pers in 2013. She was also named an AUS all-star in 2012, the same year she won the Golden Boot award for lead­ing the Nova Sco­tia Soc­cer League’s se­nior women’s di­vi­sion with nine goals as a mem­ber of Sub­ur­ban.
