WASHINGTON - Virginia women's lacrosse sophomore Casey Bocklet scored four goals to lead eight different scorers as the Cavaliers posted a 12-6 victory over Penn Friday afternoon at Georgetown University's Multi-Sport Field in the first round of the 2013 NCAA Division I Women's Lacrosse Championship.

At press time, Virginia (10-9) is tied with Princeton for the second most NCAA Tournament victories with 30, trailing Maryland (48). Princeton will face Duke later tonight at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

The Cavaliers took an early 2-0 lead on goals by senior Caroline McTiernan and sophomore Liza Blue in the game's first two minutes.

Penn (11-6) tied it at 2-2 on a free position shot by junior Tory Bensen at the 15:42 mark in the first half and held its first and only lead of the game at 4-3 when senior Caroline Bunting scored off a helper from freshman Nina Corcoran.

Virginia closed out the half with three goals, two by Bocklet, to take a 6-4 lead at halftime.

The Cavaliers would run off another five goals, the first two by Blue, to open the second half as part of an 8-0 run that spanned 28:31.

Bunting ended the Quakers' scoreless drought with 4:30 remaining netting her second goal of the game to score her 100th career point. After suffering a hard foul from Virginia senior goalie Kim Kolarik, she notched her fourth point of the game finding Corcoran at the top of the 12-meter fan for the uncontested tally with 39 seconds remaining.

Bunting finishes her career with 101 points, the 21st Quaker to amass at least 100 career points.

Virginia held a 30-20 edge in shots and a 13-7 advantage in draw controls, including 7-2 in the decisive second half.

The Cavaliers advance to the second round of the 2013 NCAA Women's Lacrosse Championship and will face host and No. 6-seed Georgetown Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at Multi-Sport Field.

Virginia holds a 7-3 edge in the all-time series and is 2-0 in NCAA Tournament games against Georgetown. The Cavaliers lost the last meeting, 8-7, in Charlottesville, Va. on Apr. 9, 2008. The Cavaliers and Hoyas last met in the NCAA Tournament on May 21, 2004 in the national semifinals with Virginia prevailing 12-9 in Princeton, N.J. and went on to win the national championship.
