LEXINGTON, Ky.—The Pioneers added three goals in the second half, but could not erase the Bishop lead as Ohio Wesleyan topped the Transylvania University women's lacrosse team, 13-4, Saturday at Pat Deacon Stadium.
The Bishops jumped out to a first half lead, before Erinkitola's first score of the game put the Pioneers on the board just under the midway point of the first half. After a ground ball pickup from Rachel Harrison, Erinkitola netted a free position shot thanks to a Bishop foul. Erinkitola, again, found the net with 25:13 left in regulation. Harrison forced an Ohio Wesleyan turnover which led to a successful Transylvania clear allowing Erinkitola and the Pioneers to add the goal.
The Pioneer attack continued to threaten penetrating the Bishop defense, as Jessica Bier added Transylvania's third goal with 8:20 remaining following a ground ball pick up from Julia Ward.
Ward and the Pioneers converted a late Ohio Wesleyan goal into another score at the 3:42 mark, but could not overcome the deficit.
The Pioneers are back in action Wednesday as the host Otterbein University at Pat Deacon Stadium. Wednesday's game is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
