DAVIS, Calif. - Elizabeth Landry scored three goals and had two assists for UC Davis on Saturday evening but No. 18 Towson used a strong first half to beat the Aggies, 15-8, in a nonconference women's lacrosse game at Aggie Stadium.
UC Davis, which also received single goals from five other players, fell to 5-3 while Towson, which picked up four goals and five assists from Ashleigh Rohrback, improved to 5-4. Alyssa Ferro added four goals for the Tigers while Paige Duncan and Taylor Moore had three.
The Aggies finished the game in strong fashion, scoring five of the game's final seven goals, including three straight over a six-minute span.
Towson jumped to a 4-0 lead in the first 10 minutes of the game and then added six more following the Aggies' free-position goal by Carly Voris with 18:55 left in the half. Trailing 10-1, Courtney Neff scored on an assist from Landry to make it 10-2 which is how the game went into halftime. Rohrback had three goals in the opening 30 minutes for the Tigers while Ferro also had three.
Rohrback and Ferro scored back-to-back goals in the opening minutes of the second half to extend Towson's lead to 12-2 but Landry scored on a free-position shot as UC Davis rattled off four of the next five goals to cut the deficit to 13-6 with eight minutes to go. Ellie Delich and Meghan Jordan tallied goals with UC Davis up a player while Landry added another score.
Melissa Kellan and Landry added goals for UC Davis in the final minute.
The Aggies, coming off final exams this week, will have a two-game roadtrip to Michigan next week. They'll face Detroit on Thursday before facing Michigan on Mar. 30 as they try to snap a three-game losing streak.
