Women's Lacrosse Suffers First Loss of Season

North Carolina snaps Tech's unbeaten streak.

April 7, 1999

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- The Virginia Tech women's lacrosse team had its unbeaten streak stopped at five matches with an 18-5 loss to No. 7 North Carolina at Rector Field House on Wednesday.

Tech, now 5-1 on the season, jumped on the board just 34 seconds into the match on a goal by Dawn Will (Phoenix, Md.) off of an assist from Catherine Augustyn (Fairfax, Va.). After UNC tied the match at 1-1, the Hokies took a one-goal lead on an unassisted goal by Augustyn with 21:31 left in the first half.

The Tar Heels (5-4) then took a 6-2 lead before the Hokies got back in the scoring column. Tech scored the next three goals to cut the lead to 6-5 on two goals by Jane Poole (Charlottesville, Va.) and one by Will. UNC scored the final three goals of the half to secure a 9-5 halftime lead.

North Carolina scored nine unanswered goals in the second half to post the 18-5 victory. Erin McGinnis led UNC with four goals, while Meghann Mohler tallied three goals and four assists. Tar Heel goalies Debbie Castine and Melissa Coyne combined for nine saves in goal.

The Hokies will open Atlantic 10 Conference play this weekend at Rector Field House. On Saturday, Tech will play host to Temple at noon and will entertain St. Josephs at noon on Sunday.
