VU Beats UNH, Falls to Boston University
March 28, 1999
Kristin Ehst scored three goals, Becky Kehl added two, and Emily Lough and Shana Crabtree combined to make ten saves, but #11 VU fell short in a comeback effort, falling 8-7 to #17 Boston University on Sunday afternoon at Nickerson Field in Boston.
Vanderbilt (4-4), which spotted New Hampshire a 3-0 lead on Friday afternoon before eventually prevailing 11-7, trailed 5-2 at halftime. It was the first time all season that the Commodores had trailed at the end of the first thirty minutes of play. BU had a 7-4 lead after Jen Manning scored with 12:47 to play. Vanderbilt rallied, however, and Ehst's goal with 4:54 left cut the deficit to 7-6. Less than a minute later, Jean Cooney added her fourth of the game, and that goal would stand to be the game-winner. Kehl added her second of the contest, tying a career high, with 49 seconds remaining.
On Friday afternoon, VU trailed 5-2 with 10:12 to go in the first half, before scoring five unanswered goal to take a 7-5 lead over winless New Hampshire. The Wildcats tied the game on back-to-back goals just five minutes into the second half. But Vanderbilt, behind a career high three straight goals (a natural "hat trick") by freshman Liz Drennan, and New Hampshire-native Caroline Mansą third of the game, pulled away in the final 18:26 of the game to win 11-7. Emily Lough made a career high 15 stops in the win.
Vanderbilt heads back to the Northeast on Wednesday for an afternoon in Upstate New York's Finger Lakes region, and a date with the Cornell Big Red. The game will start at 3 p.m. Eastern (2 p.m. Central), and will be played at Berman Field on the Cornell campus.
