The Mount's Faith Koehne (Cincinnati, OH/Sycamore) scored a goal with just under three minutes to play in the game, and the Lions' held on down the stretch to record their second straight, one-goal win with a 9-8 decision at home on Tuesday night over Transylvania University. The Mount, 4-2 overall this season, returns to action on April 6 when they host conference-rival Aurora University. The Lions are 1-1 in MWLC play.
The Pioneers jumped out to leads of 3-0, and 5-3 (at halftime), only to see the Lions continue to dominate play offensively throughout the game. Transy pushed its advantage to 7-4 with 14:49 to play in the game, but the Mount recorded the game's next four goals, the last of which was scored by Nicole Sifri (Cincinnati, OH/McAuley) with 6:38 to play. That score enabled the Lions to take an 8-7 lead, their first lead of the game, but the Pioneers knotted the score at eight-all with 5:22 to play in the game.
The Mount out-shot Transylvania, 29-21 in the game, and 19-17 in shots on goal. Chrissy O'Hara (Cincinnati, OH/Mercy), Samantha Hughes (Cincinnati, OH/Colerain), Erica Walsh (Louisville, KY/Sacred Heart) and Sifri all scored two goals each for the Mount, while Paige Apel (Cincinnati, OH/Seton) had nine saves for the win. O'Hara also had two assists.
