Box Score

Harrisonburg – Mills Hook (Lutherville, Md./St. Paul’s) scored five goals and added two assists while scooping up five ground balls to lead the #9 Cavaliers (7-4) past the #12 Dukes 15-6 tonight in Harrisonburg. The Cavalier defense held the Dukes to six goals, three in each half, including a stretch of 20 minutes in the first half and 16 minutes in the second half where the Dukes did not score. Lauri Kenis (Havertown, Pa./Haverford) and Tiffany Schummer (Annapolis, Md./St. Mary’s) marshalled the defense, picking up five ground balls and causing three turnovers. In addition, the Cavaliers, who lead the nation in draw controls per game, took 16 of the 22 draws.

The Dukes opened the scoring 90 seconds into the contest before the Cavaliers went on a 4-0 run to take a lead they would not relinquish. Hook started the scoring as she grubbed a Lauren Aumiller (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep) shot and stuck it in the cage to tie the game. Virginia took the lead for good at the 18:43 mark of the half as Lauren caused a turnover on a Dukes clear attempt and the Cavaliers got the ball to Hook, who fed Lauren on the crease for a 2-1 lead. Gina Sambus (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) notched the third goal on a run in from the restraining line, and Jill Hansen (Killington, Vt./Woodstock) won the ensuing draw. The Cavaliers held the ball and on a drive to the cage Lauren was fouled. She converted the 8-meter shot for a 4-1 lead, forcing James Madison to take a time out.

The Dukes won the possession of the next draw, and worked the ball around for a goal to cut the deficit to 4-2. The Cavaliers controlled the next draw and Jamie Haas (Berwyn,Pa./Marple Newtown) drove to the crease, giving the Hoos a 5-2 lead. Virginia’s Liz McCarthy (Garden City, N.Y./Taft) made a pair of saves on the Dukes’ next possession, and Virginia worked the ball down to the offensive end. Lauren’s shot hit the pipe and Caitlin Banks (East Setauket, N.Y./Ward Melville) grubbed the ball and stuck it back in the cage for a 6-2 lead. The Dukes won the next draw and scored, but Virginia answered right back as Kenis won the draw on the Cavalier defensive side and raced down field where she fed Hook, who was streaking to the cage. Hook’s flip into the net gave Virginia a 7-3 lead at the break.

The Cavaliers stormed out in the second half, scoring three goals in the first three minutes of the half to take a 10-3 lead. Sambus fed Hook on the crease 1:11 into the second half. Hansen won the next draw and the Cavaliers worked the ball to Hook, who drove to the cage less than a minute later. The Dukes won the ensuing draw, but Lauren Keller (Towson, Md./Notre Dame Prep) caused a turnover and Kenis scooped up the ground ball and started a fast break that was finished as Banks fed Hansen who was driving to the cage. Hansen’s goal at 26:57 put Virginia in double digits on the scoreboard and forced the Dukes to take a timeout.

The Cavaliers scored a pair of goals in a span of 1:14 to push the margin to nine as Kenis caused a turnover and got the ball to McCarthy who found a streaking Keller downfield. Keller threw an outlet to Hook who was driving to the cage and converted the fast break for an 11-3 lead, and after the Cavaliers won the draw, Lauren was fouled in the arc and she converted her free position for a 12-3 lead. The Dukes then went on a mini-run, scoring three goals in an eight-minute span while holding the Cavaliers scoreless, cutting the margin to 11-6.

But the Cavaliers exploded in the final minute, scoring three times to answer right back. Hook scooped up a loose ball on a Madison overthrow at the restraining line and found Banks, who raced in from midfield for Virginia’s 13th goal with 1:05 to play. Lauren won the ensuing draw and fed Hook, who hit Haas on the crease for a quickstick goal 13 seconds later.

James Madison won the draw, but the Cavaliers got possession as Kenis notched yet another caused turnover and ground ball with under 20 seconds on the clock. Virginia took off down field and Lauren fed her sister Lacey (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep) on the crease with no time on the clock, giving the Cavaliers a final score of 15-6.

Virginia returns to action on Saturday at home as they take on conference rival Duke. The game is at 12:00 and is part of a doubleheader with the Virginia men’s team. Admission for both games is $5.
