No. 3 Florida Pulls Away Late to Defeat High Point

“I thought Mary Sean did a really good job coming in for Mikey (Meagher) and saw some shots and really made some huge saves,” O'Leary said.

Bruns and Dashiell led the Gators with four ground balls each on the afternoon while Gilroy picked up seven draw controls, as part of UF's dominance on draw controls in the game. In the second half, the Orange and Blue recorded five straight draw control to start the half while beating out the Panthers 16-6 in the contest. Dashiell also led the Gators with two assists while sophomore midfielder Nora Barry (Marcellus, N.Y.), senior attack Gabi Wiegand (Bay Shore, N.Y.) and Bruns all chipped in one each.

“We got three straight wins against three great opponents in UNC, Jacksonville and High Point and we did it in some weather conditions today that weren't ideal but we have persevered and stuck with the game plan,” O'Leary said “But we are certainly ready to be back home and play in front of our home crowd for the next three games in five days.”

The Gators are back in action on Wednesday for their home opener that opens a three-game homestand as they host No 18/19 Stony Brook with a 3:30 p.m. opening draw at Donald R. Dizney Stadium.
