Lady Chants lose first-ever lacrosse match to Cincinnati

Coastal Carolina scored eight goals, but it was not enough to overcome Cincinnati’s 13 in the first-ever lacrosse game played in Coastal Carolina history.

Cincinnati, also competing in their first game of the 2013 season, advance to 1-0, while Coastal will look to improve on the 0-1 start to its season.

The Bearcats struck first in the game when Taylor Young slotted an unassisted goal less than two minutes into the first half. The Chants countered less than a minute later when freshman midfielder Paige Timberg scored the first goal in Coastal Carolina lacrosse history in front of the 344 fans on hand to watch Coastal’s inaugural game. Lily Yednock would net another goal at 26:40 to give the Chants a 2-1 lead. Cincinnati then regained the lead with four straight goals in a span of 12 minutes, and would not relinquish the lead for the rest of the game.

The Chants finished the game with a 21-18 advantage in shots, but were edged out by the Bearcats in ground balls (16-14), draw controls (15-8) and saves (8-4). Cincinnati was also 2-2 on free-position shots while the Chants finished 2-7 in that category.

Leading the way for Coastal was freshman Keri White, who recorded three goals to tally the first hat-trick in Coastal history. White finished the game with five shots (four on goal), and three ground balls.

Charlotte O’Leary netted two goals, one assist and two draw controls for the Chants. Coastal also received goals from Paige Timberg, Lily Yednock and Rachel Ferrara. Yednock also picked up five ground balls to lead the Chants.

The Bearcats were paced by freshman midfielder Courtney Curtis who tallied five goals, one assist and three ground balls on the day. Taylor Young also had a productive day for Cincinnati, scoring three goals on four shots. Rounding out the scoring for Cincinnati were Megan Bell with two goals, and Kylie Ramsland, Katie Kiriazoglou and Ashley Helmrath with one each.

Cincinnati’s goalie Meg Gulmi, who will be credited with the win, stopped eight of the 21 shots on the day.

The Chants will have a day to rest before returning to action Sunday for a noon matchup against Marquette.
