Play-by-play recap

The Virginia women’s lacrosse team dropped a tough 12 – 9 decision to No.15 Johns Hopkins today (April 14) in Baltimore. No.5 Virginia (11-3) was led offensively by Brittany Kalkstein (3g,1a and Jess Wasilewski (3g). Jen Holden led the ‘Hoos defensively with five ground balls and two caused turnovers.

The Cavaliers scored first on a Megan Havrilla goal in the first minute but Hopkins tied the score less than a minute later. Kalkstein put Virginia back in the lead three minutes into the game with an 8-meter goal. Hopkins went on a 3-0 run to lead 4-2 midway through the first period. Hopkins won the draw and scored immediately, igniting a 4-goal run. After the third goal, Hopkins won the draw and stalled for five minutes before going to goal. With fifteen seconds to go, McBrearty made a save but the ball bounced out. JHU’s Mary Key stuck it back for a goal with thirteen ticks on the clock. On the ensuing draw, Kalkstein grabbed it at the restraining line and took off for the goal. She was fouled with one second to play, and she buried the 8-meter at the buzzer. Hopkins led 8-4 at halftime.

Virginia won the draw to start the second half, and Kalkstein scored her third goal 31 seconds into the half. A Megan O’Malley goal four minutes later, pulled Virginia to within two at 8-6 with 25 minutes to play.

Two goals by Kirby Houck started a four goal run in six minutes for the Blue Jays. Hopkins led 12-6 with 12 minutes to play.

Virginia rallied winning the final three draws; Wasilewski scored back-to-back goals 77 seconds apart, and 40 seconds later, Kate Breslin scored to pull Virginia within three.

Kalkstein won the draw, but a Virginia shot was saved by Lizzie O’Farrell, and time ran out on the Cavaliers.

Virginia returns to action on Tuesday, April 17 as the Cavaliers travel to Fairfax to face the Patriots of George Mason. The opening draw will take place at 7 pm.
