PEPPER PIKE, Ohio – The Capital University women's lacrosse team tallied its 10th win in a dominating 14-3 road victory over Ursuline on Wednesday afternoon.

The Crusaders then posted four straight unanswered scores to inflate their lead to 6-1 with 8:49 remaining in the opening half of play.

Ursuline then managed to tack on another goal at the 3:11 mark, before the Crusades again retaliated with one last score with under one minute remaining before halftime.
