LANCASTER - Janelle Swartz and Lauren Lock each scored in the second half to lift Juniata to a 2-0 Tri-Valley League win over Lancaster Country Day Saturday.
Juniata coach Brian Strawser said the first half was a little bit sluggish.
"It was kind of a slow, sluggish start in the first half for us," he said. "It was evenly played in the first."
After the scoreless start, Swartz buried the opening score less than five minutes into the closing half. Ten minutes later, Lock got a feed from Lauren Baublitz for an insurance goal for the Indians.
"In the second half we definitely picked up the tempo and getting that first goal really opened it up for us," Strawser said. "We controlled things from there."
Juniata's Joelle Winey had 12 saves in the win.
