The Catamounts then poured it on in the second half, with Cox scoring twice in the first six minutes and then adding two more later in the half to finish with seven goals, one off the school record of eight held by UVM Hall of Famer Lyn Jordan '85. Cox also assisted on Sara Talbot's first-half goal to give her eight points, tying the school mark.
