It was halftime at Springfield’s Halderman Field this afternoon and Conestoga senior Meghan McGillis was not happy with the way the Pioneers were playing.
“We knew we had to get it together and play like the team we know we are,” McGillis said.
‘Stoga, which had been halfway to its first defeat of the season, turned things around completely to earn its fifth consecutive victory (3-0 Central League), 13-8. The win put a halt to Springfield’s six-game winning streak, dropping the Cougars to 2-1 in league play.
The Pioneers were outscored in the first half, 7-1, with sophomore Emily Santana getting Springfield’s first three goals and senior Alex Poplawski adding a pair of scores before halftime.
