NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ- After leading 9-5 at halftime, the Pioneers girls lacrosse surrendered 9 goals themselves to fall in a 14-13 nail biter versus Caldwell on Saturday at Lieder Field.
The Pioneers stormed on to the field at the start of the game and struck for three quick goals in the opening five minutes of the game, and they kept piling more goals on during the first half.
The second half saw Caldwell come back in a devastating fashion. Led by an eight goal performance by Sophomore Caitlyn Buermann, the Chiefs fought back. Buermann tied the game with 3:49 left in the game and then scored the game winning goal with 2:03 remaining.
"We just need to stay working together as a team," said Pioneers coach Jennifer Henry. "We have another game on Monday that we'll hopefully be able to come back and out and fix some of those areas where we kind of broke down in the second half."
Six different Pioneers tallied goals during the game. Sophomore Kaitlyn Cumiskey led the team with five goals and two assists. Sophomore Sadie Miller added three goals. Senior Iris Kaloshi potted two, sophomore sophomore Kaylee Marzynski, sophomore Sophia Marinello, and senior Elena DelLuca each scored a goal a piece.
