Daily Staff Reports - email@example.com
HARRISONBURG - Junior middle blocker Lizzy Briones collected a match-high 19 kills, but UNCW rallied to win the final two sets in a 3-2 Colonial Athletic Association win over the James Madison volleyball team at Sinclair Gymnasium/Godwin Hall Sunday.
NEWARK, Del., Oct. 6, 2013 - Three unanswered goals in the final 12 minutes of play led to James Madison field hockey's 3-2 loss at Delaware on Sunday afternoon.
JMU dropped to 1-2 in Colonial Athletic Association games and 6-6 overall while Delaware improved to 8-3 overall and 2-0 in CAA play.
With a little more than 11 minutes remaining in the game, Delaware's Kasey Prettyman connected on a shot from the top of the circle to cut the JMU lead to 2-1. The goal came off the Blue Hens' 15th shot of the afternoon and their ninth shot on goal.
A score off a corner by Esmee Peet knotted the game at 2-all with 7:43 remaining in the game. At the 68:24 mark, Michaela Patzner gave the Blue Hens the 3-2 lead when she scored off a centering pass from Meghan Winesett.
Senior Stephanie Tarafas took the loss (3-2) after allowing three goals from 10 shots on goal. Sarah Scher earned the win (8-3) after two goals against and three saves.
Delaware outshot JMU 18-6, including a 10-5 advantage in shots on goal. The Blue Hens also earned eight corners to the Dukes' four earned corners.
The Dukes scored on their first shot of the day, a tap-in by sophomore Saskia Chelmowski from junior Taylor Bailey. Chelmowski now has four goals on the season and nine points, and Bailey has 10 points off three goals and four assists this year.
Redshirt-sophomore Taylor West fired in a shot less than four minutes into the second half to double the Dukes' lead. It was her team-leading 11th goal of the season, and she now has 25 points.
JMU returns home Wednesday, Oct. 9, for a non-conference match against Radford. Play begins at 7 p.m. at the JMU Field Hockey Complex.
