from press release

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - University of Denver junior Jenn Etzel (Bel Air, Md.) buried a pass from sophomore Jill Remenapp (Woodbine, Md.) with just six seconds on the clock to break a tie and give the Pioneers a 10-9 win over Vanderbilt in the 2013 season opener on Saturday afternoon.

Remenapp had seven points in the game off two goals and five assists for the Pioneers (1-0), while Etzel added an additional goal and an assist in the game. Redshirt senior Kara Secora (Denver, Colo.) recorded a hat trick in the game.

"The game was a bit sloppy at times, but it is a great way to start the season," head coach Liza Kelly said. "We saw incredible plays from a lot of individuals, and we are looking forward to our next opponent."

Vanderbilt (1-2) jumped to a three-goal lead in the first five minutes. Denver stormed back and tied the game four times but did not take a lead until the final shot of the game.

Redshirt sophomore goalie Hannah Hook (Arnold, Md.) made eight saves to earn the win in her first career start.

The Pioneers remain on the road for a pair of games next weekend, playing at George Washington on Feb. 22 at 1:30 p.m. MT and Delaware on Feb. 24 at 10 a.m. MT. Denver opens the home schedule on Saturday, March 2, when Louisville visits Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium.
