The Virginia women’s lacrosse team held visiting Richmond to 15 shots, including only five in the first half, and defeated the Spiders 13-5 tonight in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers (2-0) were led offensively by Blair Weymouth’s three goals and two assists, with all three goals coming in the decisive first half. Kate Breslin notched her second consecutive hat trick, while at the other end of the field the Virginia defense did not allow the Spiders (2-2) and appreciable time in the arc. The Cavaliers dominated the draws, winning 12 of the 20 in the game, including three by Ashley McCulloch.

The Cavaliers jumped on the board first as Jess Wasilewski won the draw and Virginia set its offense where Weymouth drove from the top, scoring just over a minute into the game. Richmond tied the game at 1-1 in the seventh minute, on an 8-meter, and the ‘Hoos’ attack erupted.
