Vanderbilt 11, North Carolina 12


Vanderbilt Lacrosse Succumbs to North Carolina, 12-11 4/12/03

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - In another nail-biting match-up between two well-respected teams, the Vanderbilt women’s lacrosse team (4-6) would fall to UNC (5-7) in Saturday’s contest.

The match started off slow for the Commodores. A strong effort presented by the North Carolina offense would propel the Tar Heels to a 4-0 lead in just under nine minutes of play. But UNC would also gain more help from the Commodores, as numerous fouls aided several free position shots and subsequent Tar Heel goals.

As in previous matches, Vanderbilt would rally together for an impressive comeback to even knot the score at 4-4 with just six minutes to go in the first period.

But during the second period, UNC would again increase their lead by four goals and would never allow Vanderbilt make a full comeback. Though, like in the first period, Vanderbilt would come fairly close to evening the score, time would run off the clock as UNC stalled to defend their lead and improve their record.

Scorers for Vanderbilt included: Jessisca Roguski (2), Lauren Peck (1), Kelly Devlin (3), Jeanie Crawley (3), Mary McCeney (1), Michelle Allen (1)

Scoring for UNC: Ames (4), Higgins (2), Dieringer (3), Mc Carthy (1), Szaknory (1), Barnes (1)

Vanderbilt will look to rebound as they take on Davidson at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Vanderbilt Lacrosse Complex in an American Lacrosse Conference match-up.
