Towson, Md. – Junior Julie Lambi (Oley Valley H.S./Fleetwood, Pa.) scored one goal and had an assist as the Towson Tigers (2-0) edged UMBC (1-1) by a 2-1 margin at Minnegan Field at Johnny Unitas Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.
Junior Ashley Bacon (Elkton H.S./Elkton, Md.) gave Towson a 1-0 lead midway through the first half when she scored her first goal of the season off a penalty corner. Senior Andrea Schlezes (Mount Pleasant H.S./Wilmington, Del.) and Lambi assisted on the goal. Midway through the second half, Lambi scored an unassisted goal to increase the Tigers’ lead to 2-0. The goal was her second of the season and the 26th of her college career. She is now tied for the Towson University career record with 26 goals.
