Eagles Stunned By Bulldogs
The Eastern Eagles fell 4-2 to the DeSales Bulldogs, losing to them for the first time since joining the Freedom Conference in 2008.
In the five meetings prior to Saturday's game, the Eagles had outscored the Bulldogs 26-2.
Jess Jaindl and Alexa Borrelli scored in the loss. Jaindl is second on the team with seven goals this season.
DeSales took the 1-0 lead in the 21st minute, but Eastern responded in the 22nd minute as Borrelli found Jaindl for the score.
Borrelli then scored her first goal of the season, inserting the corner and then finishing a rebound in front of the cage.
However, DeSales scored with 10 seconds left in the half to tie the game at 2-2.
The Bulldogs scored in the 52nd minute and then tacked on an insurance goal in the start of the 70th minute.
Eastern earned eight penalty corner opportunities in the second half (and held DeSales to one), but was unable to convert those opportunities.
The Eagles will look to rise to the occasion against No. 9 TCNJ on Tuesday for a 7:30 p.m. away game.
