Box Score

Play-by-play recap

The Virginia women’s lacrosse team used a pair of four-goal bursts to pull away from Temple and eventually defeat the Owls 18-8 in Charlottesville at the University Hall Turf Field. Blair Weymouth and Kate Breslin both notched four goals, with Weymouth getting two in the first four-goal blitz and Breslin scoring two to open up the second half, to lead the Virginia attack.

The Cavaliers (4-0) jumped out to a 2-0 lead before Temple was able to get on the board in the sixth minute of play. Virginia then scored four goals in five minutes, with two off the stick of Weymouth, to push out to a 6-1 lead. The teams traded goals over a 22-second span before the Owls scored twice in just over a minute to cut the deficit to 7-4. Virginia’s Kaitlin Duff and Breslin scored 23 seconds apart to push the margin back to 10-5, but Casey Cech’s goal with 10 seconds to play in the half off an assist from Johna Capaldo made the score 10-6 at the break.

Breslin scored twice in the opening 1:46 of the second half to give Virginia an eight-goal cushion. Frengs notched her third goal of the game to pull back within five, but the vaunted Virginia defense held the Owls off the scoreboard for the next 22 minutes. Again Virginia scored four goals in five minutes, with Megan O’Malley and Weymouth both contributing a goal and an assist in that blitz.

Lauren Benner came in for Kendall McBrearty and made two saves while allowing no goals, and Sara Hairfield played the final five minutes in the cage and made three saves while allowing Temple’s final goal.

Virginia returns to action on Friday as it hosts Penn State at Klockner Stadium. Game time is slated for 7 p.m.
