With the start of the fall sports schedule, every team begins with the same record and high hopes of a successful season. So when the New Egypt girl's soccer team finally made it to Audubon High School for their non-league matchup, the long anticipated wait was finally over. Audubon wasted little time getting on the scoreboard and scoring often in the first half. The Audubon Lady Wave recorded five goals from five different players in the first half to pull away from the Warriors. Audubon finished the game scoring 6 goals to shut out New Egypt.

Things did not start out right for the New Egypt Warriors as their bus driver had difficulty finding their way through Audubon. The extended time gave the Wave ample time to get in a good warm-up by the time their opponents stepped off the bus. Head coach Bill Scully had everything going right for the Wave as they took the field with their new uniforms ready for a challenging season.

Audubon applied pressure right at the start of the game with their offensive attack. Allyson Jones found Noelle Bisinger on the right side and made no mistake putting the first goal on the scoreboard just over 2 and half minutes into this game. Amanda Malony not only scored the next goal for Audubon, but also assisted on Emma Jakubowski goal to give the Wave a 3-0 lead with 23:21 remaining in the first half. Audubon took advantage of the Warriors lack of ability of getting any offensive pressure in this game. Two more goals by Samantha O'Donnell and Jones pushed Audubon's lead to five goals as the first half clock ran out.

Katie Kurylo tried to get the Lady Warriors at least a scoring opportunity at the beginning of the second half with her aggressive play, but Audubon's defense turned away any charge the Warriors mounted. Audubon started right off were they left off in the first half. At the 32:56 mark, Malony recorded her second assist of the game when she found Megan Rogers right in front of the net alone to give Audubon a 6-0 lead. Right after that goal, coach Scully put in the subs for the rest of the game. Goal keeper Jenna Whylings had an easy day only seeing two shots come her way for the save. Meanwhile Shannon Kanop was very busy recording 15 saves but seeing those six goals get by her.
