The Scots were able to hold off the Lions aggressive offense until halftime keeping the score 1-0. The beginning of the second half started scoreles once again until Stefanie Autenrieb (Cincinnati, OH/ Seton) took a gutsy shot from way downtown that made its way into the back of the net bringing the Lions lead to 2-0. The Mount continued to attack throughout the second half but could not make another connection. The time ran out giving the Lions their first victory of the season with a final score of 2-0.
