Vivonetto records hat trick for Mids

UMBC falls to Vermont

March 29, 2009|By From Sun staff reports

Freshman Dani Vivonetto scored three goals for the Navy women's lacrosse team, but they weren't enough as the Midshipmen fell to visiting Colgate, 10-4.

The Raiders outscored Navy 6-1 in the first half and used stifling defense to maintain the lead.

Erin Rawlick (C. Milton Wright) extended her scoring streak to 26 games with a second-quarter goal for the Mids (6-3, 2-1 Patriot League), who lost their second straight. Colgate (9-3, 3-0) has won seven of eight.

"We have a lot of respect for Colgate," Navy coach Cindy Timchal said. "They are a strong, seasoned group, and they certainly showed why they are the team to beat in the Patriot League. The effort was there today, but again our struggles in the clearing game really held us back. We came out in the second half and fought hard for the full 30 minutes, but after the first half they had - it was just too big a hole for us to climb out of."

Colgate's Brie Moran scored all three of her goals in the opening half, and Molly Carroll added two as the Raiders took control. Moran put Colgate on the board at the 23:56 mark, and Carroll followed with back-to-back unassisted goals as part of a game-opening, 4-0 run.
