Amanda Pappas scored twice against Johns Hopkins.
BALTIMORE—The UMBC women’s lacrosse team (5-5) dropped an 8-6 decision to cross-town rival Johns Hopkins (4-4) Tuesday afternoon at Homewood Field.
The score was tied, 3-3, with 6:55 remaining in the first half, but the Blue Jays scored the final two goals of the period to take a 5-3 lead at intermission.
Hopkins continued its run with three of the first four goals of the second half to jump out to an 8-4 advantage with 5:20 remaining in the game, but a pair of late UMBC goals cut the visitors’ deficit in half.
Sophomore midfielder Amanda Pappas (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) led the Retrievers with two goals, the first of which tied the game at 2-2 midway through the first half. Pappas added a team-best three ground balls and two caused turnovers.
Senior attack Abbey Swift (Baltimore, Md./Towson) was the only other Retriever with multiple points, as she tallied a goal and an assist. Sophomore midfielder Ashley Stodter (Silver Spring, Md./Good Counsel) won a team-high three draw controls.
Hopkins attack Brooke Foussadier and Brianna Cronin each scored twice for the hosts.
UMBC junior goalie Kate Quick (Phoenix, Md./Maryvale Prep) recorded five saves, while Blue Jay keeper Julianne Wisner stopped eight shots.
The Retrievers return to action on Saturday, March 28, when they travel to America East rival Vermont.
