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
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.
