EASTON, Pa. - The Lafayette women's lacrosse program fell to Boston University 9-8 on a rainy Saturday afternoon at Fisher Stadium. The Leopards went on 7-1 run that spanned the end of the first half and the start of the second period. Boston, however, would score three goals in just over two minutes midway through the second period to steal the win away from the Leopards.

Kirsten Wilhelmsen, Ana White and Laura Kleiber paced the Leopards (4-8, 0-5) attack, scoring two goals apiece. Charlotte Avallone and Amanda Case also picked up tallies in the loss. Rachel Martin collected a game-high five groundballs while Avallone led both squads with caused four turnovers.

Jill Horka and Becca Church both had four goals each to lead the Boston (5-5, 4-0) attack. Christie Hart also tallied a goal for the Terriers. Horka picked up a team-high four groundballs and also led Boston with three caused turnovers.

After falling behind 5-1 midway through the first half, the Leopards rattled off four straight goals from White, Kleiber, Case and Wilhelmsen to even the score at 5-5. With just under one minute to play in the half, BU converted a free position shot to go in front 6-5. White responded for the Maroon & White 35 seconds later to tie the game at six with 22 seconds left in the opening half.

The Leopards began the second half with a quick tally from Wilhelmsen, which was followed up by a Kleiber goal three minutes later. Boston, however, would answer with three straight tallies in the span of two minutes to regain the lead 9-8 with 12:38 left to play. The Terriers and Leopards would go scoreless over the final 12 minutes of action as Boston held on for the victory.

For the game, BU outshot Lafayette 23-22 while the Leopards won the groundball advantage, 16-14. The Terriers won 11 draw controls compared to Lafayette's eight.

Leopards' goalkeeper, Megan Curtain, made seven saves in the defeat while Christina Sheridan held the Maroon & White scoreless in her 26:05 minutes of action. She stopped three shots en route to picking up the win.

Lafayette returns to action this Wednesday night in a non-conference matchup against Villanova at Fisher Stadium. The opening draw is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
