Franklin outlasts Transylvania women's soccer in Indiana on Wednesday

final score

Franklin, Ind. – The Transylvania women's soccer team picked up a 2-0 loss to the Franklin College Grizzlies at Faught Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Pioneers and Grizzlies battled for control of the match throughout the opening 45 minutes of play. Then, with just 10 seconds remaining in the first half, Franklin captured a 1-0 lead on a header by Elaina Page off a Franklin free kick.

While the Pioneers sought an equalizer early in the second half, the Grizzlies' defense continued to stifle Transylvania's attack, which was only able to muster four shots on the night.

Franklin extended its lead to the final mark of 2-0 with a goal from Lilly Haines in the 75th minute of play. 

Transylvania goalkeeper Morgan Patton collected nine saves against two goals allowed in the midweek matchup.

With the loss, the Pioneers' record falls to 5-9-3 overall, and 3-3-2 in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference, while the Grizzlies improve to 6-11-1 overall, and 6-2 in league play.

Transylvania will wrap up regular-season play with a trip to Terre Haute, Indiana, on Saturday afternoon for a matchup against the Rose-Hulman Fightin' Engineers. The game is set for a 1:00 p.m. start at the Rose-Hulman Intramural Fields.
