Blue Knights Wallop Warriors for 2nd Win
WAYNESBURG, Pennsylvania (April 21, 2012) - On a cold and wet Saturday afternoon on the road, the Urbana University women's lacrosse team earned the second win of the program's second season, racing by the Warriors from Waynesburg University 13-7. The Warriors were coming off a big one-goal victory over West Virginia Wesleyan, but they ran into a Blue Knight squad desperate to end a 5-game losing streak.
Urbana's Emily Boerger put Urbana on top 1-0 early. The Warriors briefly tied the game at a goal apiece, but the first half ended with a flurry of Blue Knight goals. Four straight unanswered Urbana goals gave the visitors a 5-1 halftime advantage. Waynesburg wouldn't score again until 12 minutes had eclipsed in the second half. By then, Urbana had pushed its lead to 8-1.
