Orlando, Fla. - March 16, 2014 - Emily Fowler (Branford, Conn.) found the back of the cage three times, but the Springfield College women's lacrosse team could not complete its second-half charge as it fell to Oswego, 5-4, on Sunday morning.
The loss evens Springfield's record to 3-3 this season.
Kelly Gallo (Westfield, Mass.) scored Springfield's only other goal in the contest. Anne Versprille (Franklin, Mass.) made eight saves between the pipes for the Pride and Connie Nielsen (Sayville, N.Y.) scooped up eight ground balls.
Springfield was just 2-for-10 on free position shots and finished the contest with 20 turnovers.
After Fowler scored a free-posiition goal to tie things at 1-1 at the 21:56 mark of the first half, Oswego scored the game's next four goals to own a 5-1 advantage with 20:24 left in regulation.
Gallo scored the Pride's first goal in over 38 minutes of action on a free-position strike with 13:28 to play, which Fowler followed up with a goal off a Nielsen feed just 1:31 later.
Fowler pumped home the game's final goal at the 3:41 mark, but Springfield was unable to cap off its comeback bid as it dropped the one-goal decision.
The Pride will play again on Tuesday when it goes up against nationally-ranked Geneseo at 11:00 am.
