NCAA Lacrosse: Cal Berkeley Women’s Lacrosse (8-6) Loses Final Home Game 16-14 To Oregon


Despite a career-high tying five goals by Tara Arolla, California lost a key conference match against Oregon, 16-14, in its last regular-season game of the year on Friday afternoon at Witter Rugby Field. Playing in what is likely the last home game of their careers, goalkeeper Allie Shropshire made six saves and midfielder Chapin Jackson collected one goal and one assist for the Golden Bears on Senior Day.

Cal and the Ducks are trying to qualify and claim the highest seed possible for the upcoming Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament. Cal’s record dropped to 8-6 (2-2 in the MPSF), while the Ducks improved top 5-6 (2-0 in the MPSF).

No. 2 Notre Dame (7-0, 2-0) will play host to BIG EAST foe Georgetown (5-4, 2-1) at noon (ET) on Sunday at Arlotta Stadium. The game will be aired live on ESPNU.

Mike Corey will handle play-by-play duties, while Jamie Munro will serve as the analyst. • This will be the 11th meeting all-time between Notre Dame and Georgetown.

The last showdown between the Irish and Hoyas in South Bend occurred in 1999. Georgetown won that contest 12-8. The only other meeting at Notre Dame was a 13-10 Fighting Irish victory in 1993. That was Notre Dame’s last win over Georgetown. • The Irish are off to a 7-0 start for the third time in program history (31 seasons).

The other 7-0 starts came in 1993 and 2009. • The Irish are coming off a 12-8 win over then No. 8 Villanova. That marked the fifth ranked opponent the Fighting Irish have defeated this season. • Notre Dame’s defense ranks first nationally by allowing just 6.14 goals per game, which is on pace to break the school-record mark of 6.19 from the 2009 season. • BIG EAST rivals Notre Dame (7-0) and Syracuse (8-0) are the only two undefeated teams remaining in all of NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse.
