Cal Berkeley Women’s Lacrosse Leads 12-0 At Halftime, Rolls To 16-6 Win Over Siena On March 12


California responded in a big way after suffering two tough defeats in its last two games with a convincing 16-6 victory over Siena on Wednesday afternoon from Kabam Field at Memorial Stadium. Golden Bear veterans led the way to get the team back in the win column with five goals coming from junior Gaby Christman, four from senior Amelia Burke and three from senior Paige Gasparino. Christman recorded nine shots, Burke was 3-for-4 with free-position attempts and Gasparino also chipped in an assist, two ground balls, a draw and a caused turnover.  Cal (2-2, 1-2, MPSF) set the tone early and shut out the Saints through the first half.  "We knew this game was a critical turning point of our season," head coach Ginger Miles said. "We wanted to set the tone early and maintain the momentum throughout the game. We needed to clean up the mental mistakes that we had made in the two previous games. We did a great job today in all facets of the game." Just two minutes into the game, Christman notched her first goal of the day to give the Bears the early 1-0 advantage. That goal kick started the scoring barrage as the Bears went into the locker room with a 12-0 halftime lead.  "Gaby came out on fire," Miles said. "She really wanted to set a tone. Often times she is the spark on offense and defense, and she has made her mark causing turnovers and utilizing her speed on offense too." The huge first-half lead gave Miles and her coaching staff a chance to get more players off the bench and into the game for some valuable playing time.

UC Davis Women’s Lacrosse Outlasts Siena 11-9 In Overtime On March 10 To Remain Undefeated At 4-0


Junior Elizabeth Landry scored four goals while sophomore Ellie Delich added another three to lift UC Davis to an 11-9 overtime win over Siena in non-conference women's lacrosse action at Aggie Stadium Monday evening. Both players scored in the extra frame to help the Aggies remain undefeated for the year.  UC Davis moves to 4-0 overall. The Saints slip to 1-4.  Landry scored one goal in the first half, two in the second, then her fourth on the opening possession of the overtime period. She also picked up a game-high six draw controls. Delich netted back-to-back midway through the first half then added an insurance goal in the 63rd minute. Freshman Melissa Kellan provided another two goals while Meghan Jordan and Morgan Sissler each netted one. Senior Carly Voris had an assist, three draw controls and five ground balls.  For Siena, sophomore Sarah Croutier shot 4-for-5 while Alyssa Treanor hit another two. Junior midfielder Julia Sirianni had a goal with a team-leading four draw controls.  The game ran in streaks for either team before settling into a 9-9 tie at the end of regulation. Croutier and Treanor sparked the Saints to a 2-0 lead in the first nine minutes before Delich's consecutive scores led a 3-0 Aggie comeback. Croutier responded with two goals amidst a run of four unanswered Siena goals to set the board at 6-3 through the 28th minute. However, Kellan's eight-meter goal in the 29th and Jordan's unassisted drive with five seconds left in the first period evened the tally at 6-6 at the break.   The ebb-and-flow pattern continued into the second as Landry's two goals extended UC Davis' scoring stretch to five unanswered, giving the Aggies an 8-6 lead through the 39th minute. Croutier's four goal halved the deficit to one at the 10:30 mark in the second, then turnovers by either side halted the scoring before Kellan's second-chance goal made it 9-7 in the 49th minute. UC Davis suffered a tough break minutes later when a goal came off the board in the 51st: Delich had found Voris cutting through the eight-meter area, and Voris converted the pass, but the shot was disqualified after a routine stick check. The lead remained at two, and Siena gained possession.  The Saints closed the gap to a 9-8 when Treanor converted an eight-meter chance in the 55th, then Sirianni equalized when she converted an Erin Mossop assist with less than four minutes remaining. UC Davis had three chances to take the game in regulation. Junior Sara Quero drew a charge when Croutier attempted a crease roll -- a play on which she had scored twice before -- with 2:40 remaining. The Aggies quickly transitioned to the offensive end, but Siena freshman goalie Samantha DePasquale came up with a big save on an ensuing eight-meter attempt.
