During the game, this sextet combined for four goals and five assists as the Cavaliers (11-6) defeated Vanderbilt (4-11) 13-6 today. Haas had one goal and two assists, gving her 51 points on the season, making her the first person in Virginia history to record 50 points in three different years. Lauren Aumiller, Lacey’s sister, scored five goals and added an assist to record her 61st point of the season, setting a new record for scoring as a second-year and moving up to ninth position on the single-season scoring charts.
Virginia jumped on top early behind the play of Hansen. She caused a turnover and scooped the ball to Lauri Kenis (Havertown, Pa./Haverford), who transitioned the ball downfield where the Cavaliers found Haas, who fed a streaking Lauren at the 26:18 mark. On the ensuing draw, Hansen got control and got the ball to Hook, who fed her back just 14 seconds later. The Cavaliers went up 3-0 six minutes later after Liz McCarthy (Garden City, N.Y./Taft) made one of her three saves, giving the Hoos possession. After a good clear, Molly Cangemi (Timonium, Md./Notre Dame Prep) shot the ball but it was saved. Haas got possession and was fouled in the arc. She converted the free position for a 3-0 lead at 20:51. Virginia went up 4-0 four minutes later as Lacey fed Cangemi who was running in from the restraining line.
After a Commodore timeout, they got on the board five minutes later on a run to the cage. Virginia countered with two goals in a span of 1:23 as Lauren scored once and assisted on the other. She took a crease feed from her sister at 4:21 and then fed Morgan Thalenberg (Annapolis, Md./St. Mary’s), giving the Cavaliers a 6-1 lead at the break.
Virginia exploded offensively in the opening minute of the second half, scoring twice in the first 34 seconds. Haas won the draw and found Hook, who passed to Caitlin Banks (East Setauket, N.Y./Ward Melville), who found a streaking Hansen for th e first goal. On the next draw, Cangemi got possession and drove to the cage, finding a trailing Lauren, who scored to put UVA up 8-1. Lauren rolled the crease six minutes later to give Virginia their largest lead of the game at 9-1.
Vanderbilt then went on a 3-0 run to close the gap as Mary McCeney, April Tellam, and Jeannie Crawley each scored on drives to the net, forcing the Cavaliers to take a timeout at 8:24. Banks won the next draw and drove around the cage, finding Lauren who was trailing her and scored, stopping the Commodores’ run. The teams combined for three goals in a 46 second span as Lauren scooped up a ground ball in the defensive arc and started a transition that was finished as Cangemi drove to the cage following a foul on Banks. Vanderbilt won possession of the draw and drove to the net, and Hansen then won the next draw and took it to the cage, finding Haas, who fed Hook who was driving to the net for the Cavaliers’ 12th goal. Lindsey Buchanan (Towson, Md./Towson) then scored her first career goal at Virginia as she batted in a loose ball from a save made from a Cangemi free positiion, putting Virginia up 13-5. Amanda Rice scored fhe final goal for the Commodores on a free position with 15 seconds to play.
