Towson Women’s Lacrosse, The No. 17 Nittany Lion women’s lacrosse team dropped its 2012 home opener on Sunday afternoon, falling to No. 2 Maryland (3-0), 16-6, in what was also the program’s inaugural game at its new facility, Penn State Lacrosse Field.
Senior goalkeeper Dana Cahill (Towson, Md.) made a career-high 16 saves, including 12 in the first half, against a barrage of 37 Terrapin shots. The 2012 Tewaaraton Award Watch List nominee also led the Lions in ground balls with four. Sophomore Mackenzie Cyr (Westminster, Md.) (2 goals, 1 assist) and freshman Maggie McCormick (Eldersburg, Md.) (1 goal, 2 assists) topped Penn State (1-1) with three points each.
Maryland burst from the gates, building a quick 3-0 lead through the game’s first eight-plus minutes. Freshman Tatum Coffey (Toms River, N.J.) got Penn State on the scoreboard for the second consecutive game, netting her third goal of the year at the 19:58 mark.
After the Terrapins responded with a 2-0 run, Cyr and McCormick combined for the Nittany Lions’ second goal of the game. McCormick, who leads Penn State early on this season with four assists, served as the feeder while Cyr was the goal scorer. Maryland would go on finish the half by outscoring PSU, 5-1, to head into the break with a commanding 10-3 advantage. Cyr and McCormick once again teamed for the Lions’ lone goal during the final stretch of the half.
Just after halftime, Maryland’s Katie Schwarzmann netted her game-high sixth goal to swell the Terps’ advantage to eight goals. Senior Aly Adams (Springfield, Pa.) put Penn State in the score column in the second half, converting on a free position attempt at the 26:32 mark to make the game 11-4.
