A few defensive breakdowns almost cost Centre College's field hockey team a win, but the Colonels held on to defeat visiting Transylvania 4-3 Tuesday.
The Colonels outshot Transy 33-5 and had 16 penalty corners to the Pioneers' three. However, two of Transy's three goals came off penalty corners.
"Centre controlled the game almost the whole game," Centre coach Tom Hobbs said. "But we had several defensive breakdowns on defensive penalty corners."
Jessica Rublein, Lauren Crosby, Morgan Tunnel and Meagan Haag each scored for Centre, with Gina Preston picking up an assist on Rublein's goal.
