Women's Lacrosse Falls 14-4 To No. 15 Boston University
March 2, 2005
BOSTON - Freshman Kathleen Typadis (Medfield, Mass.) posted her second hat trick of the season but it was not enough as the No. 15 Boston University women's lacrosse team defeated the UMass Minutewomen 14-4 on a very cold Tuesday afternoon at Nickerson Field.
Angie Martin led all players with five points in the game scoring three goals and adding two assists. She was one of three Terriers to tally three scores as she was joined by Alyssa Trudel, a Tewaaraton Award watch list member, and Jenny Hauser.
Boston University (1-0) opened the scoring four minutes into the game when Hauser went in for the unassisted score. Martin and Lauren Mortin added goals and within the first 10 minutes of play the Terriers had a 3-0 lead.
Typadis answered for UMass (1-1) finding the back of the cage at the 19:37 mark, but the Terriers added two more goals in response to go up 5-1 with 13:16 in the half.
After being fouled inside the eight-meter zone, Typadis converted a free position shot to pull the Minutewomen within three, 5-2.
With 7:18 to play in the period, Typadis found junior Jackie Nesbitt (Springfield, Pa.) cutting towards the goal for the score to close the gap to 5-3, but Boston University tacked on its sixth goal with three seconds remaining as Morton took the pass from Mary Beth Miller for the score.
The Terriers outscored UMass 8-1 in the second half to close out their season-opening victory. The only UMass goal of the period was Typadis' third score of the game - sixth of the season - with 27 minutes to play.
Trudel scored three goals and Martin added two in the second half as Boston University was able to control possession by causing eight turnovers in the period (16 for the game).
Junior Lauren McCarthy (Derry, N.H.) made 12 saves in the cage and collected seven groundballs for the game. For the Terriers, Anne Sheridan posted six saves facing 13 shots.
Typadis' performance comes on the heels of earning Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week honors for scoring three goals and posting an assist in the season-opener against Holy Cross (2/26).
The Minutewomen will return to action on Saturday, March 5 when they travel to Havard for a 4:00 p.m. start.
