Villanova, Pa. (March 9, 2013)—The Mount St. Mary's women's lacrosse team suffered a 16-7 loss on the road at Villanova. Erin Seipp scored two goals for the Mountaineers to lead the offense.

Eight different players scored goals for Villanova (2-3), including three apiece from Maria Bowman and Ali Judge. Jessica Mucci assisted on six of the Wildcats' 16 goals.
