Lady Cavaliers Dominate

Lady Cavaliers dominate this day. The East Carolina Lady Pirates (1-1) were the guests in Charlottesville, Virginia to open the 2021 season for the UVA lady Cavaliers. Four goals in 3:43 jump-started UVA to a commanding 21-6 victory. This one was over almost as soon as it started. Megan Tryniski (1g,2a) stopped the Cav’s run, albeit temporarily.

UVA went back to work and shut the door on ECU shutting them out for nearly 39 minutes while dominating as well on the offensive side. A ten-goal outburst ended the first half at a 14-1 score. Ad

Things would pick right back up with the home team adding six more net benders that pushed it to 20-1. ECU showed their heart and showed no quit with Megan Pallozzi nabbing a pair and Frances Kimel tacking on another.

Maggie Bostain (1g) ended the Cavs scoring before Pallozzi (3g-1a) and Camryn Pennypacker (1g) brought it to the 21-6 final.

Lady Cavaliers dominate the Lady Pirates. How solid was the UVA offense? 12 players registered a goal. Led by Ashlyn McGovern (4), Lillie Kloak with 3 and McKenzie Hoeg nailed two goals and two helpers. Megan Pellozzi led the Pirates with 4 points with 3 goals.
