Box Score

The Cavalier women’s lacrosse team celebrated Founder’s Day at the University of Virginia with a 19-4 victory over the Virginia Tech Hokies today. Molly Cangemi (Timonium, Md./Notre Dame Prep) had two caused turnovers, won three draws, scooped up two ground balls and scored five goals and added an assist to help the #8 Cavaliers (8-5) to the victory. Mills Hook (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep)’s second goal of the afternoon, scored at 18:01 as she rolled the crease, was the 100th goal of her Virginia career as she becomes only the tenth Cavalier in school history to record 100 goals. The Cavalier defense kept the Hokies off the board for the first 25 minutes of the second half.

Virginia Tech jumped on the board first as the Hokies won the opening draw and scored in the first minute of play. The Cavaliers answered as Cangemi and Lauren Aumiller (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep) both had a goal and an assist on the next two Cavalier goals. Courtney Muller (Smithtown, N.Y./Smithtown) started the first play with a ground ball after a Tech overthrow, and Cangemi found Lauren alone on the crease. Starting keeper Mary Beth LaVerghetta (Towson, Md./Notre Dame Prep), in her first career start in the cage for Virginia, made a save and started a transition that was finished as Lauren found Cangemi on the edge of the arc. Cangemi’s goal gave the Cavaliers a lead they would not relinquish at 21:49. Two minutes later Gina Sambus (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) picked off a Tech pass in the defensive arc and the Hoos got the ball back upfield on a fast break that found both Caitlin Banks (East Setauket, N.Y./Ward Melville) and Jamie Haas (Berwyn, Pa./Marple Newtown) alone on the crease. Banks fed Haas for Virginia’s third goal at 19:34. The Hokies won the draw and scored on a fast break, but that would be as close as the vistors would get as Virginia outscored them 16-2 the rest of the day.

Virginia answered as Lacey Aumiller (Baltimore, Md./Notre Dame Prep) fed her sister Lauren on the crease less than a minute later. Banks scored less than a minute after that after she caused a turnover on the clear attempt and ran in the ball. Cangemi then converted a free position for a 6-2 lead.

The Cavaliers then went on a four -goal run in a span of 1:44 as Lauren got a pair of goals and an assist. After Sambus got possession of a loose ball, she got the ball to Haas who found Lauren alone on the crease. Lauren Keller (Towson, Md./Notre Dame Prep) caused a turnover on the next possession and got the ball to Hook behind the cage, who fed a streaking Sambus. Forty seconds later Morgan Thalenberg (Annapolis, Md./St. Mary’s) chased down a loose ball and again got the ball to Hook who fed Lauren in the middle of the arc. Sambus won the ensuing draw and took off downfield where she fed Lauren, who quicksticked a pass to Schuyler Williams (McLean, Va./Episcopal) on the crease, who converted the pass at 10:38. The Hokies broke the run with a goal at 7:07, but Hook won the next draw and got the ball to Jill Hansen (Killington, Vt./Woodstock) at the 12 who found Erin Sweeney (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) on the crease. Sweeney’s goal, the first of her collegiate career, put UVA up 11-3. Cangemi’s conversion of an 8-meter shot gave Virginia a 12-3 lead going into the break.

The Cavalier defense kept the Hokies off the board for the first 25 minutes of the first half, thanks in large part to three saves from Andrea Pfeiffer (Durham, N.C./Conestoga (Pa.)) who came on to start the second half. Cangemi started the scoring for the Cavaliers with a run from the goal line extended two minutes into the stanza, giving the Hoos a ten-goal lead. Pfeiffer’s next two saves started Virginia transitions that were converted to goals. The first one was completed as Lacey fed Banks on the crease. On the second goal, Lauri Kenis (Havertown, Pa./Haverford) got the ball in the defensive arc and ran it all the way downfield where she fed Hook whose bounce shot scored the Cavaliers’ 15th goal.

Hook’s 100th career goal came as she took the ball behind the cage and rolled the crease at 18:01 in the second half. Hook now has 100 goals and 42 assists for 142 points in her career, which ranks tenth all-time in scoring. Less than a minute later Haas threw the ball to Banks at the 12 and Banks drove to the cage with just over 17 minutes to play. Carol Hotarek (Manhasset, N.Y./Manhasset) notched her first career goal as she worked her way through the arc at 13:41 to go in the second half. Cangemi closed out the scoring as she also worked for position in the arc, scoring at 9:30 in the period. Virginia Tech notched the final goal of the game with just over four minutes to play.
