NCAA Lacrosse: Cal Berkeley Women’s Lacrosse Loses 7-5 At UMBC On Feb 23 (Video Highlights)

Cal Berkeley Women's Lacrosse vs UMBC

Junior Paige Gasparino netted two goals and senior Melissa Humphrey scored her 50th career goal, but it wasn’t enough for the California lacrosse team to garner its first win of 2013. The Golden Bears fell to UMBC, 7-5, on Saturday in Baltimore.
“We struggled today with getting it in the back of the net,” head coach Ginger Miles said. “Our shot selection was poor, and that came back to haunt us with this being such a close game. We had plenty of offensive looks but we didn’t capitalize. UMBC capitalized on their opportunities, and that’s the story of the game right there. We couldn’t find any rhythm.”
Cal (0-2) tallied the first goal of the game when Humphrey scored her second goal of the season and the 50th of her career at the 25-minute mark. Humphrey ended the day with four shots, three of which were on goal, and three ground balls. Senior Sarah Milik also had three ground balls to lead the Bears in that category.
Following a UMBC goal by Lindsay Cox, Gasparino scored the first of her two scores at the 17-minute mark. The Retrievers would add two more first-half goals and went into the break leading, 3-2.
Cox was strong for UMBC all day, as she went on to score three more times and also added an assist. In the first three minutes of the second half, Cox scored two more of her four goals, giving UMBC a little distance from the Bears.
Trailing 6-2 with 20 minutes remaining in regulation, Gasparino scored her second goal to cut the deficit to 6-3. With just over seven minutes remaining, Junior Amelia Burke scored to cut UMBC’s lead to 6-4. Freshman Lizz Lavie garnered an assist on the score.

The win brings Denver’s record to 2-1, while Lehigh now sits at 2-1.
“We’ve been working hard all week,” said head coach Bill Tierney. “We asked the guys to come out and play hard this week and even though we made some of the same mistakes in the first half that we did last week, I thought we played much better in the second half. Once we got on a roll, it really got their confidence up and we really shot well today.” Freshman Gordie Koerber (Baltimore, Md.) tallied a career-high four goals and his second career hat trick, while Law finished with three goals and four assists for his seventh career hat trick. Sophomore Wes Berg (Coquitlam, B.C.) finished with his fifth career hat trick, second of the season, while senior Cameron Flint (Georgetown, Ontario) recorded two goals and two assists.
