Pomona-Pitzer 12-0 Second Half Run to Beat Oberlin

Pomona, CA Oberlin led 3-2 at half and had a 4-2 lead in the second, but the home Pomoma-Pitzer Sagehens scored 12 unanswered goals to defeat the Yeowomen 14-4 on Monday night.

Bronwen Schumacher scored the game's first goal and Grace Barlow would later follow with back-to-back scores the second of which was assisted by Phoebe Hammer - to make it a 3-1 Yeowomen lead. The Sagehens added an 8-meter score to make it a one-goal game at the half.

The Hammer-to-Barlow connection would work again once more early in the second half, but from that point on the Yeowomen offense would go silent. Meanwhile, the Sagehens came to life with 12 scores over the final 24 minutes to earn the win.

Oberlin was out-shot 32-12, which included a 27-6 margin in the second half. The Saghens also had a slight 24-21 edge in ground balls, while winning 14 of the game's 22 draw controls.

Senior goalie Madeleine O'Meara made 12 saves and had a team-high five ground balls.

Oberlin returns to action on Wednesday against Occidental College.
