WASHINGTON, D.C. – With the Crusaders leading 6-4 with 14:04 left in the first half, the Eagles then outscored the Crusaders by a 12-2 margin as the Holy Cross women's lacrosse team fell to American, 16-8, on Saturday afternoon in Patriot League action at Jacobs Field. With the loss, the Crusaders fall 4-5 overall (1-1 PL), while the Eagles improve to 2-6 overall (1-0 PL).

Hennessey extended her goal scoring streak to 25 straight games. After Alex Lugovina put the Eagles on the scoreboard, Sutton made it a 4-1 contest with her second goal of the game on a free-position shot. American then netted two straight goals, but Sutton scored her third goal of the game as she found the back of the net off a pass by Concilio.
