Towson Pulls Away for CAA Victory Over Hofstra

Towson would answer with four straight goals that would eventually put them ahead 6-2 with 15:32 left in the opening half following a goal from Sarah Appelt.

Hofstra once again fought back as junior attack Taylor Albright and Ward tallied back-to-back goals and Hofstra closed the gap to 6-4 with 12:20 left.

With both teams looking to take the momentum into the second half, Towson scored the final three goals of the half, including a goal from Raymond with four seconds left to earn a 9-4 advantage at the break.

The Pride would score two of the first three goals in the second stanza, including von Hollen's first of the game, to trail 10-6, with 23:08 left in regulation but that would be as close as Hofstra would get.

Towson would then score five of the next six goals in the game to take a commanding 15-7 with 7:26 left on the clock, en route to the 16-9 victory.

von Hollen added two ground balls for Hofstra, while senior midfielder Maryann Miller had two draw controls, two ground balls and a goal.

Senior goalie Jaclyn Pandolf played all 60 minutes in net for the Pride and made 13 saves.

Mary Teeters made six saves in 51:02 to earn the win for Towson. Kelly Custer (three goals, one assist) and Appelt added hat tricks for the Tigers. Custer and Ashley Waldron each had five draw controls.

Hofstra returns to action on Sunday when it hosts Delaware at 1:00 p.m.
