Twelve different Gators found the back of the net en route to a Florida lacrosse win over Cincinnati, 19-6, Sunday at Donald R. Dizney Stadium.

The game, which was scheduled to start at 11:30 a.m., finally began at 3 p.m. after a long delay due to severe weather in the area.

“We got a lot of different looks from a lot of different players, offensively, which was really good to see,” UF coach Amanda O'Leary said. “I thought defensively, Mary-Sean (Wilcox) and Cara (Canington) came up with some big saves and our defenders did a really good job of keeping Cincinnati from scoring.

“It was just a team effort in every way and I was glad to see everyone stepping up to contribute out there today. ”

Sam Darcangelo led the way for No. 7 Florida (4-1) with a career-high four points on four goals. Rookie Sammi Burgess notched three goals and dished out a career-high three assists to score a career-high six points. Also scoring points for Florida were Carli Marsh (2 goals, assist), Nora Barry (goal, 2 assists), Mollie Stevens (2 goals), Alex Puller (goal, assist), Lauren Lea (goal), Chloe O'Haire (goal), Devon Schneider (goal), Hannah Burnett (goal), Carly Ross (goal), Taylor Bresnahan (goal) and Beth Willertz (assist).

Florida set the tone early, scoring seven goals in less than seven minutes of play over the Bearcats (1-2).

The Gators return to action at 1 p.m. Saturday when they visit No. 12 Stony Brook in Stony Brook, N.Y.

Women's tennis: No. 3 Stanford (7-0) defeated No. 5 Florida 7-0 on Sunday at Stanford. UF falls to 7-2, while the Cardinal are 7-0.

Softball: Due to heavy rain, all four games scheduled for day 3 of the University of Florida Lipton Invitational were canceled.

Florida is back in action Friday, when the Gators face Oregon at 3:30 p.m. at the Diamond 9 Citrus Classic in Orlando. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.

Women's golf: Due to early morning rains, round one of the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate Championship in New Orleans was canceled. All teams competing will play 36 holes today.
