After a scoreless first half, the Celtics (0-2/0-0/0-0) took a 1-0 lead in the 59th minute when Alexa Schwab (JR/Conway, Pa.), a transfer from Kent State University, scored the first Carlow goal of the season and the first of her career.
However, the Storm (2-0) put together a late comeback. Carley Kandel scored a minute later and Maddie Smith netted the game-wiiner in the 66th minute.
Carlow goalkeeper Paige Schindehette (SO/Bethel Park, Pa.) made five saves, and Lake Erie goalkeeper Rachel Weber made seven.
