She tacked on two goals and two ejections drawn in an 11-6 loss to No. 13-ranked Indiana University, in addition to contributing a goal, two steals and a field block in a 6-5 loss to No. 17 Princeton University.
Woods wrapped up the weekend with four goals and an assist in a 13-10 loss to the University of Maryland to raise her team-leading totals to 78 goals and 18 assists.
