The teams traded goals for the remaining 18 minutes of the first half and the Tigers came out with a 10-5 lead at the break.
In the second stanza, five different Tigers combined to score six goals in the first 20 minutes to give Towson a 16-5 advantage. Junior Jocena Venditti (Baldwinsville, N.Y./Baldwinsville) gave the Retrievers another goal with eight minutes remaining, while Fahey converted a free position shot with 6:09 on the clock to bring UMBC within nine. Finally, Jacobs scored her third goal at 55:56 to round out the Retriever scoring.
For the game, Jacobs led UMBC with three goals, while Fahey tallied two assists. Sophomore Kristina Raab (Amherst N.Y./Amherst) (0-3) was tabbed with the loss as she played all 60 minutes, allowed 16 goals, and made seven stops.
