The Ox­ford women’s soc­cer team re­mained un­de­feated on the sea­son with a 5-2 win over Shel­ton State in the evening match of the Ox­ford Cup 2008 Fri­day.

Arielle Hay­den opened the scor­ing in the third minute when she took a pass from Tay­lor Tyger and slipped a ball be­hind the Shel­ton State goal­keeper. Ox­ford pounded the Shel­ton State goal for much of the first half and was held in check un­til Han­nah Hooten found the back of the net in the 44th minute to take a 2-0 lead to the half.

Hooten scored her sec­ond goal of the match in the 50th minute when she drove home a shot off a pass from Katie Phillips. Tyger fin­ished off Shel­ton State when she buried two goals in an eight minute span in the 60th and 68th min­utes. Tyger’s sec­ond goal was a tremendous tight an­gle vol­ley off a serve from Phillips. Shel­ton State did man­age to beak Ox­ford’s shutout with two goals in the fi­nal 15 min­utes.
