After allowing the visiting Tigers two goals in the first 90 seconds, the No. 3 Cavaliers gave their mothers a present for Mothers’ Day as the `Hoos (17-3) outscored Princeton 8-1 over the remainder of the first half and then won 13 of the 19 draws in the second half to claim the NCAA first round victory 19-10 today in Charlottesville. Kate Breslin and Blair Weymouth both had eight points to lead the Cavalier offense while Brittany Kalkstein had six draws. Princeton’s Katie Lewis-Lamonica had five goals to lead the Tigers (10-7).

Princeton’s Alex Gangler scored 63 seconds in and Lewis-Lamonica scored 27 seconds later to stake the Tigers to an early 2-0 lead, but Kalkstein assisted Weymouth and then batted a loose ball into the cage 17 seconds later to tie the game at 2-2. Lewis-Lamonica scored two minutes later to give Princeton a 3-2 lead, but Virginia scored the final six goals of the half, including three from Breslin, to take an 8-3 lead at the break.

The Tigers scored the opening goal of the second half as Lewis-Lamonica drove to the cage 1:43 into the period to stop the Virginia run. The Cavaliers answered with a three-goal run in 1:55 thanks to a pair of saves by Kendall McBrearty and a goal and an assist from Breslin. The Tigers closed the gap to 11-6 with a pair of goals four minutes apart as Marie McKenna and Lewis-Lamonica both scored. Weymouth answered with two goals in 29 seconds to push the margin up to 13-6. Ashley Amo scored off the draw off an assist from Kristin Morrison to pull the Tigers within six at 13-7.

The Cavaliers went on a 5-0 run over the next six minutes, with five different `Hoos scoring and Weymouth adding two assists, as UVa jumped out to an 18-7 lead with 11 minutes to play. A Kathleen Miller goal stopped the run, and Holly McGarvie’s goal two minutes later cut the deficit to nine at 18-9. Breslin notched her sixth goal off an assist from Weymouth two minutes later, and Lewis-Lamonica closed out the scoring with her fifth goal of the afternoon at 3:22.

Kalkstein’s sixth draw control of the game not only led all players but also gave her 57 for the season, which ties Jamie Haas for the all-time record for draws in a season. Weymouth’s fifth goal of the game was the 100th of her storied career, and she becomes just the fourth person in school history to notch 50 goals as a second-year. Breslin now has 60 goals as a fourth-year; she is only the fourth person in school history to notch 60 as a fourth-year.

The win over Princeton was the second this year for the Cavaliers and ups Virginia’s record against the Tigers to 14-12, and it evens the record of the two schools in NCAA action at 4-4.

Virginia advances to play North Carolina, who defeated Richmond 14-7 in first-round action. Other first-round winners included Northwestern, Syracuse, Maryland, Penn, Johns Hopkins and Duke. The NCAA quarterfinal game will take place on Saturday, May 19. Game time is slated for 2 pm at Klockner Stadium.
