Dominant Road Effort Lifts Virginia Over James Madison

The No. 9 Virginia women’s lacrosse team dominated No. 19 James Madison, earning a 10-3 road victory.

“I think we did a lot of the little things really well, starting with Courtney Swan on the draw,” said head coach Julie Myers. “We were able to dominate those possession and really create a lot of caused turnovers. I thought we did a nice job of controlling the game. Our defense made big saves after big saves. Our attackers did enough scoring on the other end. Morgan Stephens really did a great job of pushing the pace and using her skills in transition and generating fast-break goals to break the back of our opponent. We did lots of little things well that just culminated in a performance that I am really proud of.”

Morgan Stephens scored three goals with an assist, her second hat trick of the season. Courtney Swan had two goals and three assists.

Virginia will be back at Klöckner Stadium on Saturday, March 23 when it hosts No. 6 Duke at 1 p.m.
