After opening the season with three straight wins at home, the Virginia women's lacrosse team hit the road for the first time on Friday.
No. 3 Maryland jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, then pulled away from the Cavaliers late in the second period to hand No. 6 Virginia a 12-9 loss.
The Cavaliers dropped to 3-1 on the season, 0-1 in the ACC. Maryland is now 4-1 (1-1).
Senior Josie Owen did most of the scoring for Virginia, putting up four goals and three assists. Maryland got three goals apiece from Karri Ellen Johnson, Katie Schwarzmann, and Kelly McPartland.
The Terps scored twice in the first three minutes of the second period to take a 7-2 lead. But the Cavaliers stormed back to get with 8-7 with about 13 minutes to play.
After a six-minute scoreless span, Maryland put up three goals in a little over two minutes to once again pull away, this time for good.
