Towson Upsets Penn State Women’s Lacrosse 14-13 In Opener

No. 4 Penn State women’s lacrosse lost to Towson 14-13 in Friday’s season opener in Maryland.

Despite a six-goal performance from junior attacker Madison Carter, Missy Doherty’s Nittany Lions couldn’t pull off a furious comeback.

How It Happened

No. 20 Towson stormed out to a 10-4 lead just 16 minutes into the game, but Penn State scored the final four goals of the afternoon to nearly tie things up.

Senior captain Katie O’Donnell completed a hat trick with two goals in the final minute of the contest, while sophomore Maria Auth added two goals of her own. Midfielders Quinn Nicolai and Sophia Triandafils each tallied their first collegiate goal in the loss.

Natalie Sulmonte and Carly Tellekamp paced the Tigers with three goals apiece, with both teams posting 21 shots at Johnny Unitas Stadium. Freshman Lucy Lowe made her first start in goal for the Nittany Lions, but sophomore Madison Cunningham came on in relief after 15 minutes, making five saves the rest of the way.
