Two late goals help to down the Tigers
Towson started the season off with two losses against Sacred Heart and Davidson. On Friday, the Tigers (0-2, 0-0 CAA) lost to Sacred Heart (2-0) in a 3-2 shootout. Sunday was the same story, as Davidson (2-0) won 2-1.
In the game against Davidson, no goals were scored until the last 10 minutes of the game, where the Wildcats were able to pull out to a 2-0 lead.
Junior forward/midfielder Courtney Branco was able to answer with a late goal of her own for the Tigers, but Davidson was able to hold out for the win.
One of the positives coming from the two losses was the great goal play of junior goalkeeper Brittany Varacallo.
Varcacallo was able to make nine saves against Sacred Heart and 12 saves against Davidson.
Another key for the Tigers is controlling the ball. Davison was able to put up 29 shots against the Tigers and also had 17 penalty corners.
The Tigers started the game against Sacred Heart with intensity, as senior forward Kathleen Morris was able to give the Towson 1-0 lead. Morris looks to be a leader this season, as she is just one of two seniors on the team.
Sacred Heart was able to claw their way back into the game and after being tied at 2-2, the teams were forced into a shootout.
The Pioneers were able to score on both shootout attempts and the Tigers were handed their first loss of the season.
First-year Head Coach Carly Powell will look for her first career win and the first win of the season against Georgetown (0-1) on Friday. The game, which will be played at College Park, Md., starts at 7 p.m.
