BURLINGTON, Vt. – The Oregon lacrosse team jumped out to an early lead, but a Vermont rally sent the Ducks to an 11-9 loss on Friday.

Jana Drummond tallied four points on three goals and an assist while Bina Barrett balanced the attack with three points (two goals and one assist) to lead the Ducks, who fall to 4-5 on the season.

UO started off strong by scoring the first five goals of the contest. Jess Drummond and Barrett scored 34 seconds apart to put the Ducks up 2-0 1:58 in. Jess Drummond converted on a free position attempt a minute later to extend the lead to three goals before Jana Drummond and Alex Breiner found the back of the net at the 5:10 and 8:48 marks, respectively, to give the Ducks their biggest lead of the game.

Lauren Johnson got Vermont on the board with 10:36 expired and Sydney Mas scored the first of her four goals 29 seconds later. Megan MacDonald recorded her second-straight assist and found Mas again at the 13:14 mark to pull the Catamounts within two goals.

Undeterred, Oregon responded with goals from Jana Drummond and Lara Bennett to make it a 7-3 lead with 11:45 left in the opening frame.

Mas completed her hat trick with 10:23 remaining, but the lead remained 7-4 late in the first half. Adison Rounds pulled Vermont within two with 4:33 to go and then started a last minute rally by scoring with 53 seconds to play in the opening stanza. Samantha Stern completed the comeback by scoring with nine seconds to go, tying the contest at 7-7 at halftime.

Vermont scored the first four goals of the second half, taking the lead for good on a Caitlyn Clark tally 6:04 into the final period.

Jana Drummond drew the Ducks closer with her third goal of the day with 7:16 to go and Bina Barrett made it 11-9 with 2:39 left, but UO was unable to get any closer on the day.

Vermont outshot Oregon 24-20 for the game and won the turnover battle, 20-18. The Ducks held the advantage in both groundballs, 15-13, and draw controls, 12-10.

Salliebeth Finnegan got her ninth-straight start in goal and made three saves in the first half. Caroline Federighi closed out the contest by turning aside four of eight shots in the second half.
