The Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (1-3) could not overcome a second-half run, falling to the No. 17/18 Towson University Tigers (2-2), 13-8, on Wednesday afternoon at Cooper Field. It was a physical game with 70 total fouls and 13 yellow cards between the two teams.

In the win on Saturday, junior Taylor Gebhardt (Baldwinsville, N.Y./C.W. Baker) led the way with four goals, while sophomore Michaela Bruno (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) added three goals as well as five draw controls.
