UVa on Wrong End of Another Top-10 Faceoff


The No. 9 Virginia women’s lacrosse team fell 13-7 to No. 6 Duke, snapping a Cavalier three-game win streak.

Virginia trailed by a goal, 6-5, at halftime, but was outscored 7-2 in the final 30 minutes. Duke doubled up Virginia in shots in the second half.

“I don’t think we shot particularly well in either half, but we needed to do a better job in the second half” said head coach Julie Myers. “I thought we were competitive in the first, and then we had a couple of breakdowns on defense and gave them some really easy looks at the goal.”

Virginia fell to 0-3 in ACC contests and 5-5 overall. All five of Virginia’s losses have come in games against top-10-ranked opponents.

“I think there were a couple of times we made some mistakes and came up empty,” Myers said. “We gave Duke, who is a really disciplined team, too many opportunities. What we take away from this game is we can’t play flat.”

Casey Bocklet scored two goals with an assist. Ashlee Warner had a goal and an assist. Liz Colgan, making her second-straight start in goal, logged six saves.
