Sophomore Jill Remenapp (Woodbine, Md.) scored three goals and added four assists to lead the University of Denver women’s lacrosse team to a 13-8 come-from-behind road win over the University of Vermont on Thursday afternoon at Virtue Field.
Sophomore Rachael Dillon (Mount Sinai, N.Y.) and junior Jenn Etzel (Bel Air, Md.) also recorded hat-tricks for the Pioneers (8-1). Dillon did so on just three shots, on Denver’s way to its sixth-straight win.
DU trailed Vermont (4-5) by a score of 6-2 before scoring 11 of the game’s next 12 goals.
“We didn’t get off to the best of starts today,” head coach Liza Kelly said. “With that said, I thought we made some great adjustments in the second half to hold them to two goals. We got great second-half performances from Jenn, Kara and Jill, and I thought Chelsea Cook (Bay Shore, N.Y.) was pretty strong the entire game. Moving forward, we need to focus on putting together a full 60-minute performance.”
Redshirt-senior Kara Secora (Denver, Colo.) found the back of the net twice and added an assist, while senior Mikayla Clark (Eden Prairie, Minn.) added two goals. Cook came up with three groundballs to play a role in Denver’s defensive performance. Redshirt sophomore goalie Hannah Hook (Arnold, Md.) made nine saves to earn the victory.
