Mercyhurst North East got back in the win column with a non-league victory over the Pioneers Tuesday night at Liguori.
The Pioneers are in their first year as a NCAA program after leaving the WNYAC as a junior college last year.
Mercyhurst trailed 8-4 after a few minutes into the game but regrouped during a time out and took control to lead 34-25 at the half.
Brea Forney led all scorers with 18 points as she hit four 3-pointers. She also was perfect in six attempts from the free throw line.
Sabrina Montgomery secured 10 rebounds to lead the Saints in that category and Maria Gamble had five assists.
Mercyhurst improves to 11-7 overall and will host Erie Community College on Thursday.
