NCAA Lacrosse: Video Highlights Of Denver Women’s Lacrosse (8-1) 13-8 Come-From-Behind Road Win Over Vermont On March 20
Megan Takacs scored four goals to set California’s single-season goalscoring record and lead the Golden Bears to a 15-12 nonconference win over Vermont on Thursday afternoon at Virtue Field. The junior attacker now has 53 goals, surpassing the previous record of 49 she shared with former Bear Sarah Wheatley. Cal improved to 8-5, while the Catamounts fell to 8-6.
This marks Cal’s first win in a game when the margin of victory was three goals or less. Cal has twice lost by one goal – at Oregon, 10-9, on Feb. 26 and against Boston University, 14-13, in Berkeley on March 14 – and once by three goals – to Denver, 16-13, on March 21 in Berkeley.
“One of those things we talked about was redemption,” Cal head coach Ginger Miles said. “We came out to the East Coast to redeem ourselves after those close losses. Like I’ve said in my blog, we’ve been working on building and learning from past mistakes. And now I think we’ve learned how to win those close games.”
CatamounTV sat down with Head Coach Ryan Curtis and Senior Geoff Worley to preview the 2012 Vermont Men’s Lacrosse season.
University of Denver men’s lacrosse sophomore Cameron Flint (Georgetown, Ontario) scored four goals and had an assist to lead the No. 16/17 Pioneers (1-1) to an 11-6 victory over Vermont (2-1) in the 2011 home opener Sunday afternoon at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium.
“Vermont is a good team, but we forced them to settle for some tough shots,” said head coach Bill Tierney
. “We were as good as we can be and as bad as we can be all in one game, but we are starting to come together. Our guys are still getting used to playing with each other and this was a good win for us.”
Junior Alex Demopoulos (Canton, Ohio) grabbed his first goal of the season and had an assist for Denver, while sophomore Eric Law (Centennial, Colo.) tallied his first points of the season with two assists. Freshman Jamie Faus (Lakeville, Conn.) stopped 11 shots and recorded the first win of his college career.
Connor McNamara had two goals for Vermont and Geoff Worley had a goal and an assist. David Barton made 19 saves in the loss.
Defensively, senior Jeff Brown (Cohasset, Mass.) turned in an outstanding performance for the Pioneers as he limited Vermont’s leading scorer Drew Philie to just one goal. Brown finished the day with three ground balls and three caused turnovers. Freshman Harley Brown (New Canaan, Conn.) led the way with five caused turnovers, while redshirt junior Brendan DeBlois (Narragansett, R.I.) finished with five ground balls and two caused turnovers.
Denver led Vermont in shots (42-26) and ground balls (39-26), and forced 21 turnovers on the day. The Pioneers also won 11-of-21 face-offs and were 20-of-23 on clears.
