Just four days after losing, 17-2, to No. 1 Maryland at home, Towson tested No. 2 North Carolina in a double-overtime battle Sunday at Johnny Unitas Stadium.

Senior attacker Andi Raymond scored her fourth goal of the game with 5:49 left in the second half to give the Tigers a 13-11 lead. However, the Tar Heels came back and tied the game with 7 seconds left in regulation.

Freshman midfielder Emily Gillingham gave Towson a 14-13 lead in overtime, but North Carolina’s Sammy Jo Tracy answered to make it 14-14 going into second overtime.

The Tar Heels won the opening draw control of double overtime and never lost the ball. Tracy scored the game-winning goal with 4:48 remaining in the period.

Towson falls to 2-2 on the season, but will travel to Delaware on Wednesday in its first Colonial Athletic Association game.
