PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The University of Michigan women's lacrosse team concluded a two-game road swing with a 19-10 setback at Brown on Wednesday (April 9) at Stevenson Field.
Freshman Jess Angerman (Shoreham, N.Y./Shoreham-Wading River) recorded her third career hat trick, leading U-M with three goals; while freshman Tess Korten (Glen Head, N.Y./North Shore) had a team-high four points (2G, 2A). Kim Coughlan (Port Jefferson, N.Y./Saint Anthony's) also contributed two goals, marking her third two-goal performance in the last four games.
Michigan held the Bears scoreless through the first four and a half minutes of the game before a free position goal from Brown's Richael Walsh ignited a 4-0 run over a span of 1:29.
Korten halted Brown's run at the 20:51 mark as she drove around the crease from behind right, beat her defender and slipped the ball past BU goalie Kellie Roddy with a quick shot fake and high shot.
Three minutes later, Brown tallied back-to-back goals in 30 seconds to push its lead to five, 6-1, with 17:22 remaining in the first half.
The Wolverines responded with a 4-0 run of their own over the next four minutes to slash the Bears' lead to one, 6-5, by the 11:27 mark. Coughlan jump started the run as she drove hard right, dipped under two Brown defenders with one hand just before the crease, regrouped and fired a high shot into the net.
A free-position goal from Angerman, followed by a solo goal from freshman Anna Schueler (Chicago, Ill./Loyola Academy) and another free-position goal from freshman Emily Braun (Grand Rapids, Mich./Grand Rapids Catholic Central) capped the run.
Before the half, the Bears registered three unanswered goals, including a score with just 15.2 seconds left on the clock to take a 9-5 lead into the break.
In the second stanza, Michigan clipped Browns lead down to three goals on three different occasions as the two teams traded goals for the first 15 minutes.
Angerman, Coughlan and Korten each netted their second goals of the day in the first half of the second period, with each goal separated by a Brown tally, and the Bears led 11-8 at the 17:07 mark.
Brown answered with three straight goals before Angerman solidified her third career hat trick on a feed from Korten with 8:59 on the clock. After two more goals from the Bears, Korten dished out her second assist of the day to freshman Madeline Dion (Annapolis, Md./Annapolis), who was cutting left to right through the eight meter.
The Bears netted the final three goals of the contest to produce the final score of 19-10.
The Wolverines will now return home to host California on Saturday (April 12) at 1 p.m. for the program's first-ever Pink Game at Michigan Stadium.
