The American University lacrosse team fell to No. 19 Navy, 13-1, on Wednesday afternoon at Jacobs Field.

The Midshipmen added another score five minutes into the second half for the 9-0 advantage. Shauna Norris scored on a free position to put American (2-7, 0-3) on the board. But Navy was able to answer with another 4-0 run as it remained undefeated on the year and in the Patriot League with a 13-1 victory.

Jessica Wojciechowski led the Eagles with two ground balls collected and Alex Lugovina had two draw controls. Jackie Ferri made three saves between the pipes for American.
