#10 Dores Second Half Surge Downs Stanford 15-10

Nashville -- Second half hat-tricks by senior Kinsey Osberg and sophomore Mary McCeney lifted the tenth-ranked Vanderbilt Commodores to a 15-10 victory over the Stanford Cardinal Thursday in NCAA women's lacrosse action. The Commodores trailed 6-5 at halftime, but used seven unanswered goals in the middle of the second half to earn a convincing win.

The Cardinal scored the first two goals of the game and held their initial lead until the 17th minute. The Commodores fought back to take the lead, but would relinquish it before half. Stanford scored with 22 seconds left in the first half to take a 6-5 lead to the break.

In the second half, Vanderbilt quickly tied the game at six, but then allowed two goals and trailed by a pair with 24 minutes to play. In the 38th minute, Osberg scored a goal that would ignite a seven goal run by the Commodores. Stanford fought back, scoring two late goals, but the Vanderbilt defense held strong to earn the 15-10 victory.

Sophomore goalkeeper Liz Exline made her first career start. She had five saves behind a tough Commodore defense, and held the Stanford attack scoreless for almost 20 minutes in the second half.

In the second half, the Commodores scored ten goals on only fifteen shots. Osberg and McCeney scored six goals on only seven shots, with junior Jeannie Crawley adding two goals and an assist. Past the halfway point of the season, Crawley has scored in every game this year. Sophomore Jess Roguski led the Commodores offensively, scoring three goals and adding a pair of assists. She also had five draw controls on the day, helping to give Vanderbilt a 19-8 advantage on the draw.

"We challenged ourselves to play tough today," said Roguski. "In the second half, we had a lot of emotion and played well as a unit. We really came together and that was the difference in the game today."
