Virginia Falls in NCAA Semifinals

May 23, 2009

The Virginia men's lacrosse team fell to Cornell 15-6 in the NCAA Semifinal Saturday afternoon, ending its season in Foxborough, MA for the second straight year.

In its first two NCAA tournament games, the Cavaliers were able to get out to big leads and basically put the game away at halftime. This time it was their opponent that jumped on top early. Cornell started the game on a 3-0 run before Virginia's Danny Glading got his team on the board. The Cavaliers would score only one more goal in the first half and trailed 8-2 at halftime.

The two teams would trade goals in the third quarter and the beginning part of the fourth. Glading cut the lead to 12-6 with 9:53 to go in the game, but that is as close as Virginia would get. Cornell would go on to score the next three goals to put the game away for good. The Big Red will face Syracuse on Monday for the NCAA Championship. Syracuse defeated Duke in the other semifinal game 17-7.

Virginia finishes the season with an overall record of 15-3.
