Baltimore, MD –
Baltimore, MD –UMBC (1-5, 1-0 NEC) scored the first goal of the game, but lost a 19-10 decision to #5 Virginia (7-2, 1-1 ACC) this afternoon at the UMBC Stadium. Cavalier senior Lauren Aumiller led the Virginia attack, scoring four goals while posting two assists on the day.
Senior tri-captain Lauren Traber got UMBC on the board just 2:16 into the match, but Virginia’s Cary Chasney and Amy Appelt both scored inside the four-minute mark to give the Cavaliers a 2-1 advantage. Traber would soon answer with her sixth goal of the season to tie the game at two apiece. At 5:16, Appelt gave the Wahoos a 3-2 lead, but Retriever junior Jen Dragoni kept UMBC in the game with her tenth goal of the season. However, Virginia would score nine of the next ten goals to go into half-time with a 12-4 advantage.
After the break, the Cavalier offense continued to overpower UMBC, as five different players found the back of the net in the second half. The Retrievers made a push in the 55th minute, as Dragoni, freshman Jenny Kasper, and senior Stephanie Allen scored consecutive goals in a two-minute span. However, it would not be enough, as Virginia came away with the 19-10 win.
