Hofstra Drops CAA Contest to Towson

However, the Pride tied the score at 9-9 in the final seconds of the period when sophomore attacker Claire Brady (Century H.S./Sykesville, Md.) took a feed from senior midfielder Jennalee Trombley (Penn Yan Academy/Penn Yan, N.Y.) and scored her 14th goal of the season past junior goalkeeper Mary Teeters (Centennial H.S./Ellicott City, Md.).

But, the Tigers came out of the locker room and put together a nine-goal run to seal the victory as the Towson defense limited Hofstra to just seven shots in the second half. Dunn and Coogle each scored twice during the run for the Tigers while junior midfielder Jackie LaMonica (Hereford H.S./Parkton, Md.) contributed a goal with two assists during the spurt.

While Dunn led the Tigers with four goals, Coogle added three goals for the first “hat trick” of her career. Junior attacker Sarah Appelt (The Hun School of Princeton/Garden City, N.Y.) also posted the first hat “hat trick” of her career with a three-goal effort along with an assist.

Brady led the Pride with two goals and two assists in a losing effort while Maier contributed three goals.

The Tigers outshot Hofstra by a 32-24 margin and held a 17-11 advantage in draw controls, including an 8-2 edge in the second half.

The Tigers will continue their three-game road trip on Friday night when they travel to James Madison University for a 7:00 p.m. game against the defending CAA champion Dukes. Meanwhile, Hofstra will travel to William & Mary on Friday night to face the Tribe at 7:00 p.m.
