The Virginia women's lacrosse team rallied from a 2-0 deficit to start the game to take a 5-4 lead at the break, and then rallied again down one with 21:33 to play to score five of the final seven goals of the game for the 10-8 victory over Syracuse on the road. Jess Wasilewski had a goal and two assists in the 5-2 run in the first half, and then Blair Weymouth scored Virginia's final two goals of the game for the Cavaliers. Virginia (3-0) won the final five draws of the game, with Kaitlin Duff controlling three of them, to secure the victory.
After Syracuse's Katie Rowan scored twice in the first two minutes of the game to spot the Orange to a 2-0 lead, Wasilewski assisted the first of Brittany Kalkstein's three goals on the day to get UVa on the board. The teams traded goals in the next minute to give SU a 4-2 lead, but the UVa defense shut down the Orange for the remainder of the half. At the other end of the field, Wasilewski scored and then assisted Kalkstein again to tie the game at 4-4 with 5:38 to play in the half. New York native Kate Breslin gave Virginia its first lead of the game with 15 seconds to play as she buried an 8-meter from the center hash.
Syracuse opened up the second half with two goals, one each from Halley Quillinan and Ashley Pike to take a 6-5 lead with 20 minutes to play. Kalkstein scored her third goal of the game, again assisted by Wasilewski, to tie the game at 19:19. A draw and dump from Ashley McCulloch to Megan Havrilla put the Cavaliers back on top five minutes later, but Rowan scored her third goal of the game two minutes after that to even the game again.
Duff drew a shooting space foul and converted it for her only goal of the game with 11:34 to play and put UVa up 8-7. After SU gained the ball back in the goal circle, an off-ball foul on the clear gave Weymouth the ball at the restraining line. She ran uncontested and scored at 5:56 to give UVa a 9-7 lead. Duff won the draw but SU again gained possession. Kendall McBrearty made one of her seven saves to give the Cavaliers control, but a turnover allowed the Orange to score at 2:29 to pull within one. McCulloch won the draw and Weymouth drew a shooting space foul almost immediately. She scored off the 8-meter to give UVa a 10-8 lead. Duff won her fourth draw of the game and the Cavaliers held on for the win.
Virginia returns to action on Wednesday as the Cavaliers travel to Philadelphia to take on Temple in a game postponed from Feb. 25. Opening draw on March 7 is at 1 p.m.
