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.

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.

San Diego High School Boys Lacrosse Profile: Coronado Boys Lacrosse Senior Middie Kodie Englehart Will Attend Vermont After 2010 Season
Kodie Englehart is a 6’1”, 158-pound midfielder that played lacrosse at Coronado High School in Coronado, Calif. He was a 2009 High School All-American. He also was named to the San Diego Section CIF First Team, the All-City League Team and was named to the San Diego Union Tribune All-Academic Team. In 2006 he was named the San Diego Middle School Defenseman of the Year.
The University of Vermont men’s lacrosse program will add nine newcomers for the 2011 season. Head coach Ryan Curtis made the announcement today.
Derek Braig (Reisterstown, Md.), Mark D’Anthony (Hampstead, Md.), Kodie Englehart (Coronado, Calif.), Charles Graff (Middlebury, Ind.), Connor McNamara (Winchester, Mass.), Michael Quinn (Las Vegas, Nev.), Peter Santulli (Hinsdale, Ill.), Brian Slevin (Setauket, N.Y.) and Ahmad Zachary (Lower Merion, Pa.) will all join the class of 2014.
“We are very excited to announce our fourth recruiting class; the class of 2014,” Curtis said. “This is an impressive group of young men who have had great success on and off the field. Each member of this class will have the potential to make an immediate impact on this program and add quality depth to our team.”
“We’re still having a slow start,” Cal head coach Theresa Sherry. “We are plagued by injuries right now, but that shouldn’t be a factor in the first five minutes of the game. We’re trying to make changes at practice. But the strange thing is we look really good at practice and then we come out here and we can’t seem to get up for these first few minutes of the game. It’s really tough, especially when we’re short to come back. We just don’t have the legs to come back.”
California lost to Vermont, 15-11, in a nonconference game on a cold, overcast Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium in Berkeley.

Vermont’s Kristen Millar led all scorers with five points (3 goals, 2 assists). Lindsey Hegarty added three goals and Allison Pfohl had two goals and one assist.
The Catamounts aided their quick start by winning the first four and five of the first six draw controls. This is the second straight game in which Cal fell behind quickly, including an 8-1 setback in the early going against William and Mary on March 11 in Berkeley.
