Lions fall to the Pioneers

Lions fall to the Pioneers

Location: Schueler Field (Cincinnati, OH)

The Basics:

Mount St. Joseph faced a strong ORLC competitor this past Wednesday.  Transylvania was able to strike first and take the 2-0 lead early.  The Lions were able to get on the board with a goal in the first period to make the score 2-1.  After that, the Pioneers were able to take over and hold the Lions scoreless for the rest of the game. 

How it Happened:

The game started with the Pioneers taking the early lead over the Lions, getting to the net twice in the first 3 minutes.  The Lions were able to answer with a goal of their own from Seth Poirier (Somerville, OH/ Talawanda) to make the score 2-1 in the first period.  The Mount struggled to contain the Pioneer offense and gave up multiple goals in the second quarter.  The Lions trailed at the half with a score of 12-1.  The deficit was too large for the Lions as they were defeated with a final score of 25-1. 

Standouts:

Poirier continues to be an offensive weapon for the Lions as he was able to score the lone goal in Wednesday's contest. 

Up Next:

The Lions (0-9, 0-3) will host another ORLC matchup this Saturday, 3/31 against Bethany (2-6, 0-3).  Face-off will start at 1:00 PM on Schueler field.
