During the season-opener for the University of Richmond women's lacrosse team, No.6 University of Maryland handed the Spiders a 17-6 loss Sunday afternoon at First Market Stadium.

Maryland scored six straight goals during the first half to turn a 1-1 tie into a 7-1 Terrapin lead. Senior Allison Furstenburg scored three consecutive goals to bring the Spiders back into the game, but a goal with 44 seconds left in the half for junior Brittany Jones stole the momentum back for Maryland.

"[Furstenburg's goals] were all slow down attack," Richmond coach Sue Murphy said. "When we have a slow down, we have more off-ball opportunities."
