Long Island, NY - The Virginia lacrosse team tallied nine unanswered goals spanning the second and fourth quarters to top Stony Brook 15-7 and pick up the Cavaliers' first win this season. The game was played in front of a crowd of 2,262 at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium on Long Island. The Cavaliers improved to 1-1. It was Stony Brook's first match of the season.
"It was a really nice win on the road for us," said UVa coach Dom Starsia. "It was a really hard week, but I thought we tightened up our performance, especially in the second half."
After Stony Brook opened the scoring at the 12:44 mark of the first quarter on an unassisted goal by Rhys Duch, the Cavaliers proceeded to build a 5-2 lead by the end of the opening period, including a pair of goals by Jack Riley.
Stony Brook's Bobby Trenkle scored to cut the Cavaliers lead to 6-5 with 9:47 left in the first half. At that point the Cavaliers defense thwarted the Seawolves offense, holding the home squad without a goal for the next 39:56. In that stretch, UVA netted nine unanswered goals, which proved to be the difference in the contest.
Danny Glading, who recorded UVa's first goal of the day, netted three consecutive unassisted scores to ignite UVa's scoring rush. He recorded goals at 9:08 of the second period, 8:12 of the third quarter and then 2:24 of the same period to improve UVa's lead to 9-5. Riley added a pair of fourth quarter tallies to also finish with four goals for the Cavaliers. That was a single-game scoring best for the UVa junior.
Virginia out shot the Seawolves 24-11 in the second half. The Seawolves were daunted by turnovers in the third period, making eight miscues and taking just a pair of shots.
Brendan Callahan had 19 saves in goal for Stony Brook while UVa's Kip Turner turned away eight shots from the Cavalier net, including five in the second quarter while the contest was still a close affair.
The Cavaliers return to action March 3 vs. Syracuse at the 2007 Inside Lacrosse Face-Off Classic at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. Game time is 2:30 p.m.
