Brian Carroll scored three goals and dished out an assist, as the Cavalier men's lacrosse team downed Vermont, 16-4, in action on Tuesday night. The win improves Virginia's record to 8-0, and 24-1 all time in night games.
Virginia got the scoring started 14 seconds into the game on Danny Glading's lone score of the night. It was the only goal in the first six minutes, before the Cavaliers added two more. After Vermont scored to make it 3-1, Virginia added three in a row, and went into halftime with a comfortable 8-2 lead.
The Cavaliers kept their strong play going, scoring the first six goals of the second half and expanding the lead to 14-2 by the fourth quarter. They went on to coast to the 16-4 victory.
In addition to Carroll's three goals, freshman Steele Stanwick also found the back of the net multiple times. Stanwick scored twice while dishing out two assists on the night as well.
It marked a reunion of sorts at Klockner Stadium, as former Cavalier defenseman Ryan Curtis is the head coach at Vermont. Curtis played under Dom Starsia from 1997-2000 and earned All-American honors. He falls to 0-2 against his alma-mater.
Virginia gets back to work on Saturday, when the Cavaliers host Towson for a 2:00pm showdown.
