Eagles slip past Pirates 13-11

GEORGETOWN, Texas - Wittenburg scored four unanswered goals to steal the win from Southwestern, 13-11, Tuesday afternoon. 

Wittenberg shot out of the gate for three early goals before the Pirates even got warm, but SU closed the half with four straight to lead 7-6. 

Ronni Winter's free position goal to start the second half gave Southwestern a two goal advantage and they would not trail again until Wittenberg scored their 12th goal with 6:46 to play. 

Southwestern had a few great looks to close the game, but the Eagles' goalkeeper kept their lead intact for the win. 

Winter led with three goals on the night while Allison Cook, Hayley Donnelly and Johnee Wolter had two each. 

The Pirates move to 2-2 on the season with the loss and remain at home to face Beloit College on Wednesday at 6 pm.
