Lacrosse: Vanderbilt nips Davidson, 11-10

Davidson, N.C. -- The eighth ranked Vanderbilt Commodores (8-3, 4-0)overcame a slow start against the Davidson Wildcats (5-8, 0-2) to pull out an 11-10 victory in Sunday's American Lacrosse Conference matchup. The Vanderbilt attack, led by sophomore Jess Roguski's hat-trick had to fight for everything against a Davidson defense which earned six cards in the game.

The Wildcats got out of the gate quickly, scoring the first three goals
of the game. The Commodores answered, with junior Jeannie Crawley
scoring a goal for the fifteenth consecutive game, but would trail for
much of the first stanza.

After a 7-6 halftime deficit, the Commodores took their first lead at
the 41:38 mark on a free position goal by sophomore Mary McCeney. The
Vanderbilt defense tightened up in the last thirty minutes, allowing
only three goals. Freshman goalkeeper Ashley Bastinelli had four of her
seven saves the second half.

Crawley, McCeney and sophomore Michelle Allen each scored twice for the
Commodores. Junior Tara Schmucker caused three turnovers and added four
ground balls to lead the Commodore defense, while also scoring for the
sixth straight game.

The Commodores return home next Sunday, April 21st, when they host the
Ohio State Buckeyes in American Lacrosse Conference action.
