The 13th-ranked Stanford women’s lacrosse team won its fourth consecutive game Saturday as it earned a 14-9 victory at No. 19 James Madison.
After trailing by two goals at halftime, Stanford (6-2, 1-0 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation) outscored James Madison (6-1, 1-0 Colonial Athletic Association) 9-2 in the second half to claim the comeback victory.
The Cardinal was led by junior Rachel Ozer who tallied a season-high seven points on five goals and two assists. Her five goals are tied for the ninth most in a single game in Stanford history.
Ozer leads Stanford with 36 points on 24 goals and 12 assists on the season.
“She had some lasers for shots and was playing fearless, which was awesome,” head coach Amy Bokker said.
Freshman Lucy Dikeou also provided strong offensive contributions, notching four goals, two ground balls and two draw controls. She is fourth on the team with 17 points (12-5).
“She definitely came out sharp in the first half,” Bokker said. “She had such great speed and I thought she did a great job utilizing that throughout the entire game.”
Stanford was strong on defense holding James Madison to 17 shots, including just six in the second half. The Cardinal also held a 15-10 advantage in draw controls.
