MILLERSVILLE, Pa. -- Millersville defeated Indiana (Pa.) 3-2 on Friday afternoon. The Marauders left Biemesderfer Field with their second consecutive home win.

Rachel Dickinson scored her third goal of the season, a high total for a freshman. The third goal is even more impressive because she leads the team in goals despite her defensive position.

The goals were White’s 11th and 12th on the season.
