#14 Womenıs Lacrosse Falls 12-11 to #16 Delaware

April 3, 1999
NASHVILLE- Megan Fortunato's sixth goal of the game with 52 seconds to play in regulation broke an 11-11 tie and propelled Delaware (5-2) to their third straight win, 12-11 on Saturday afternoon in Nashville. Laurie Tortorelli made ten saves in the victory. Kristin Ehst and April Tellam each scored four times for Vanderbilt (4-6). Emily Lough made ten saves in defeat.

Delaware led 7-6 at halftime, and the teams traded goals back and forth in the second half. The Blue Hens led 11-9 with 8:31 to play, before VU's Caroline Mans added her second goal of the contest 25 seconds later, and Tellam tied the score just 36 seconds after that. VU was not able to break the tie, however, and Fortunato put the Hens over the top with her goal in the final minute.

The loss is Vanderbilt's third in a row. All three losses have been by just one goal. The Commodores head to Virginia next Sunday for a 2 p.m. (Central) showdown with the Cavaliers.
