March 16, 2003

COLLEGE PARK, MD - The Brown University women's lacrosse team (0-2) dropped a 15-5 decision to Maryland (6-0) Saturday afternoon at Ludwig Field.

The third-ranked Terps took control from the get-go in the contest, scoring less than two minutes into the game, taking a 2-0 lead at the 3:26 mark.

Junior Christine Anneberg (Denver, CO) answered with what would be the Bears' lone goal of the first half on a free position shot, as Maryland scored the next eight goals straight.

The Maryland run -- which moved the score from 2-1 to to 10-1 in the Terrapin's favor -- ended in the second half when freshman Kate Staley (Needham, MA) scored on a free position shot, her first career goal.

Brown also got goals from junior Laurel Pierpont (Jacksonville, FL), who led the way with two, and senior Bekah Rottenberg (Colrain, MA). Sophomore goalie Julia Southard (Manhasset, NY) made 12 saves in net.

THe Bears continue action on Wednesday, March 19, hosting Harvard in their Ivy League opener at 7:00 p.m. at Stevenson Field.
