Women's Lacrosse Falls to 12th-Ranked Vanderbilt, 16-7
UMBC took a 2-1 lead on a Swift score at the 8:38 mark, but, after a Commodore time-out, Downing opened a 5-0 run with back-to-back scores. Swift got one back for the hosts, cutting the deficit to 6-3 at the 15:26 mark, but four different Commodores scored in a 4-0 surge which gave VU a 10-3 advantage late in the first half.
Vanderbilt led, 11-4 at intermission as Emily Franke turned a late UMBC turnover into a score with 12 seconds remaining in the stanza. The two teams exchanged the first four goals of the second half as Levendusky’s third goal of the game kept the Retrievers within range at 13-6 with 16:54 remaining. But just four minutes later, Vanderbilt scored twice in a span of 96 seconds to seal the victory.
