We told you about Former Tiger Reid Wesley scoring the first goal of Bellarmine’s lacrosse season and now another Former Tiger has done the same thing for Tranyslvania.

A Class of 2013 graduate and 2-time state champion as a member of the Tiger Lacrosse program, Cooper Sohm scored the first goal of the Transylvania Pioneers’ 2014 season on Saturday against Piedmont College. Sohm’s goal capitalized on a violation by Piedmont on the game’s first face-off at the 14:07 mark of the first quarter.

Later in the game, another Former Tiger, Zack Riggs, also scored for the Pioneers! Transylvania lost 12-13 and will return home to Lexington for their home opener at the newly constructed Transylvania University Athletics Complex to face Wittenberg University, Saturday, March 1.

Make sure to keep up with Cooper and Zack all season long at and also right here on!
