PEPPER PIKE, Ohio. (WFIE) - The Kentucky Wesleyan College women’s soccer team erased a first half deficit on Saturday, but in the end lost a 3-2 match against the Ursuline. The Panthers trailed 2-1 at the break, but for a late score swung momentum towards the Arrows.

Kristina Spitzer took advantage at the end of the first half, scoring a goal that gave the Arrows a 2-1 lead at intermission.

In the 56th minute, the Panthers responded again, this time from Bree Owen who recorded her fourth goal of the season to tie the match.
