Freshman Brittany Woodfield (South Carroll) scored six goals in her collegiate debut as the visiting Towson women's lacrosse team beat American, 17-10, in its season opener in Washington.

Junior Shannon Witzel and freshman Meggie McNamara each scored four goals for Towson (1-0). Hillary Fratzke scored twice as the team's freshmen combined for 12 of the 17 Tigers goals.

McNamara got things started for Towson, taking a feed from Witzel for the game's first goal at the 28:06 mark. The Eagles tied it four minutes later, but the Tigers rattled off four unanswered goals to open a 5-1 lead.

Towson would go on to take a 9-5 lead into halftime.

In the second half, Fratzke scored just 12 seconds into the half to put the Tigers up 10-5. But American (0-1) scored three goals to pull within 10-8 at the 15:56 mark.

The Eagles' comeback fell short, however, as Woodfield sparked a 5-0 run to put the game out of reach.

Towson outshot American 33-20.

Tigers goalie Mandy Corry made just two saves, while American's Kathleen Finnegan had nine stops.
