April 13, 2014
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -The University of Cincinnati women's lacrosse team fell in its final road contest of the season, 19-3, at Temple on Sunday afternoon.
The Bearcats (8-6, 0-4 BIG EAST) received goals from Dani Tunnell (Frederick, Md./Oakdale), Courtney Curtis (Mason, Ohio/William Mason) and Michelle Platz (Cincinnati, Ohio/St. Ursula). Taylor Young (Cincinnati, Ohio/Sycamore) had an assist for UC.
The host Owls (5-8, 2-2 BIG EAST) were led by two goals apiece from Rachel Schwab, Nicole Tiernan, Morgan Glassford, Summer Jaros and Rachel Barile. Carly DeMato had a pair of assists for Temple.
The Owls recorded the first three scores of the game over the opening 10 minutes before Curtis scored on a feed from Young to make it 3-1 with 19:26 to play in the first half. Unfortunately for UC, that would be their only score of the opening half as the Owls closed the frame on a 5-0 run to take a 9-1 lead into the break.
The teams traded the first four goals of the second half, with UC's scored from Tunnell and Platz, making the score 10-3 with 25:52 left in the contest. The Owls then found another gear, closing out the game on a 9-0 to provide the final margin of 19-3.
Meg Gulmi (Syosset, N.Y./Syosset) made seven saves in the effort for UC in taking the loss. Temple's Jaqi Kakalecik recorded eight saves to earn the victory.
