COLUMBUS, OHIO -- No. 2 Mount Union fell at Capital, 59-57 in an Ohio Athletic Conference women's basketball matchup Saturday at The Capital Center in Columbus.

Leading the way for the Crusaders (8-3, 4-1 OAC) was Jamie Caton with a game-high 18 points.

The lead changed hands four times in the first half as the Crusaders went into half with an 11-2 run to make the lead 35-26.

The Raiders came out of the second half on a 26-17 run to tie the game at 52 points apiece with 5:39 remaining.

Capital would hold onto the lead, 59-54, going into the last seconds of the game. Mount Union junior Amanda Turner (Wooster/Wooster) would hit a three pointer with 0:23 on the clock to bring the Crusaders lead to two. LaMattina's layup at the five second mark was blocked by Capital's Jame Caton, to push the Raiders into a play with four tenths of a second left.
