Providence, RI- The Brown women's lacrosse team fell to 3-6 on the season on Sunday afternoon, losing to Boston University (7-4), 10-8, in a game played at Warner Roof. The Bears were led by junior Christine Anneberg (Denver, CO), who netted three goals.

The Terriers took a 1-0 lead at the 6:03 mark of the first half on a goal by Kylie Wagenet, who broke the scoreless game.

However, the Bears responded just 2:04 later on Anneberg's first goal of the game, starting a four-goal run, which featured another goal by Anneberg and two tallies by junior Laurel Pierpont (Jacksonville, FL), as Brown held onto a 4-1 lead at 16:13.

The Terriers opened the second half with back-to-back goals, scored at 33:47 and 35:36, grabbing a 6-4 lead with less than 25 minutes remaining. The Bears countered with a three-goal run, starting with a free position goal from junior Debbie Mendel (West Newton, MA) at 38:34. Pierpont assisted Anneberg's third goal, which knotted the contest at 6-6 just 1:16 later, while freshman Ashley Holden (Alexandria, VA) fed sophomore Sarah Passano (Baltimore, MD), who gave Brown a 7-6 lead at 43:21.

Boston University answered again, tying the game at 7-7, but the Bears regained a one-goal lead, 8-7, with Passano's second goal at 52:26. However, the Terriers tied the contest 1:56 later, and scored the game-winning goal at 56:05, before adding an insurance tally with 1:09 left to play.
