As the weather remains inconsistent over the past few days, Virginia lacrosse remains the same. They just keep winning. Saturday afternoon in 40 degree and rainy weather, the Cavaliers took down a struggling Towson team 11-2.
Virginia scored early and often in the contest. Freshman Steele Stanwick fired off his first two shots successfully, and had a four goal advantage before Towson found the net. The Cavaliers allowed two back-to-back Tiger goals, but it would be their only goals of the contest.
After a 6-2 halftime lead, Virginia cruised to victory behind Stanwick who had three goals in the game, and Shamel Bratton who also netted a hat trick. Virginia has defeated Towson in all of their previous nine meetings, while also improving to 9-0 on the year.
Next up for the Cavs, a meeting with perennial powerhouse Johns Hopkins at Homewood Field in Baltimore, MD. Gametime is set for 8 p.m. on March 21st.
