No. 17 Towson couldn't overcome a first half scoring binge by No. 10 Hofstra yesterday, dropping its second straight women's lacrosse game, 10-6.

Sparked by junior midfielder Becky Thorn's three scores, the host Pride (9-1, 2-0 Colonial Athletic Association) took an early 5-1 lead after the Tigers' Kerin Boghosian tied the game at one apiece.

The Tigers (6-3, 0-2 CAA) grabbed the momentum in the first 10 minutes of the second half with a 3-1 run, closing the gap to 7-6.

However, the Pride went on a 3-0 run late in the half to secure its fifth straight victory. Shannon Witzel, who led the second half charge for Towson, finished with three goals. Tigers goalie Mansy Corry had a game-high nine saves.

Drexel 11, No. 15 Delaware 8: For the first time since 1993, the host Dragons (7-1, 1-1 CAA), led by sophomore Emily Hoesch, defeated the Blue Hens (4-3, 1-1).

Down 8-7 in the second half, Drexel scored the game's final four goals to seal the victory and record its first win over a ranked opponent since joining the CAA in 2002.

No. 1 Northwestern 10, Rutgers 5: Despite a sloppy second half that included 13 Wildcats turnovers, host Northwestern (9-0) rebounded on a strong performance from Kristen Kjellman (five goals) to beat the Scarlet Knights (3-5).

No. 3 North Carolina 21, Oregon 8: The host Tar Heels (9-2) collected five hat tricks and had goals from 10 players in a win over the Ducks (2-9).

Mount St. Mary's 16, Manhattan 4: Nicole Di'Angelo had two goals and a school-record five assists as the host Mount (5-4) beat the Jaspers (0-4).

Casey Paris had two goals for the Jaspers.

Marymount 16, College of Notre Dame 7: The host Saints (6-4) set the pace early as Kerry Adler scored her first of five goals just one minute into the game.

Adler also had three assists against the Gators (1-4).


Washington College 9, Ursinus 7: The visiting Shoremen (5-2, 3-0 Centennial Conference) rallied from an early 3-0 deficit, led by senior attackman Jon Spivey's career-high six goals, to beat the Bears (1-5, 0-2).
