Bouncing back from a tough loss this Saturday, the Mount traveled to Transylvania University on Thursday, 10/5 to take on the Pioneers. The Mount grabbed a 2-0 lead right before the half, and scored two more unanswered to start the second half. The Pioneers fought back with two goals of their own, bringing the final score to 4-2. Concluding this victory, the Mount's record rises to 10-2 for the year and 1-1 in the HCAC.
How it Happened:
It was a back and forth affair until the 38th minute with midfielder Lindsey Potzick (Harrison, OH/Harrison) scoring a goal to give the Mount the lead. Within the minute, Potzick was able to find the back of the net again, with the assist from forward Lauren Haynes (Hamilton, OH/Ross). The Mount would continue their scoring ways in the second half with a goal from forward Alley Schmidt (Aurora, IN/ Lawrenceburg), assisted by Jasmine Cahill (Independence, KY/Simon Kenton) in the 56th minute. In the 60th minute, forward Paige Mersmann (Florence, KY/Boone County.) scored a goal with the assist from Ariel Huber (New Richmond, OH/New Richmond). Transylvania eventually scored with a goal in the 68th and 70th minute, bringing the final tally to 4-2 Mount St. Joseph. Goalkeeper Michelle Hessling (Hamilton, OH/ Hamilton Badin) protected the net well with 2 saves of her own. The Pioneers goalkeeper, on the other hand, was very busy with a total of 27 shots from the lady lions.
The offensive play from Lindsey Potzick gave the Mount a commanding lead early, which continued for the rest of the game. Potzick's goals gave confidence to the rest of the team, resulting in two more goals.
The Mount looks to continue their winning ways this Saturday, 10/7, at home against Earlham. The game is at 1 PM and also, this weekend is MSJ Family Weekend so come out and support your Lions!
