IRVING, Texas – The Westminster College women’s lacrosse team won, 22-14, over Southwestern University in their final game of their Texas trip on Sunday. The University of Dallas served as host.
 
Southwestern (1-1) took an early 3-0 lead with 25:08 left in the first half.

After Southwestern went up 5-1, the Titans scored three-straight, all courtesy of junior Margo Mason (Pittsburgh, PA / Chartiers Valley). Westminster followed with a 3-1 run, once again Mason scoring all the points for the Titans, to take its first lead of 7-6 with 11:50 left in the first half. The Titans never lost the lead for the remainder of the half, while Southwestern managed to tie the game twice with the latest at 11-11, which remained the score at halftime.
