After the first two games of its season, the Western Reserve Academy is hoping to crank up the offense.

The quicker, the better.

The host Pioneers suffered a 43-27 defeat to Culver (Indiana) Academies Friday evening at the Murdough Athletic Center.

Culver led 27-14 at halftime. Jillian Reef had 12 points and Josie Spano and Micayla Allene-Brent contributed seven and six points, respectively, for Reserve (0-2).

Dana Rodgers had a game-high 14 points to lead Culver.
