The College of Mount St. Joseph women's lacrosse team overcame a two-goal deficit in the second half, scoring the game's final seven goals on Wednesday evening, for a 15-10 win at Transylvania University. The Lions win was their eighth of the season, setting a new school single-season record. Last year's team recorded seven wins en route to a 7-6 finish.

Transy jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the game, and led much of the first half, before Sarah Moderbacher (Ross, OH/Ross) scored a goal with 7:27 on the clock in the first half, helping her team tie the score at five-all. The Mount added two more goals, to grab a 7-5 advantage, only to see the Pioneers fight back late in the first half, and through the early part of the second half, to re-gain the lead, 10-8, as they scored four straight goals at one point. The Lions erased that deficit quickly, scoring the game's final seven goals, starting at 23:26 of the second half, on a goal by Chrissy O'Hara (Cincinnati, OH/Mercy) and ending the scoring spree at 5:38, on a goal by Erica Walsh (Louisville, KY/Sacred Heart) to register the come-from-behind win.

Samantha Hughes (Cincinnati, OH/Colerain) led the way offensively for the Mount, tallying four goals, bringing her team-leading total to 56 this season. Nicole Sifri (Cincinnati, OH/McAuley) and Walsh added three goals each while O'Hara had two scores and an assist. Bristyl Webb (Oxford, OH/Talawanda) had 10 saves in goal recording the win. The Mount had a 37-21 advantage in shots, including 24-20 in shots on goal. The Lions forced 28 Transy turnovers.
