NCAA Lacrosse: Colorado Women’s Lacrosse (3-2) Dominates Temple 15-9 In First Back-To-Back And Home Field Wins In Program’s History
Cal Berkeley Women’s Lacrosse Defeats Temple 8-6 In Philadelphia; Cal Men’s Lacrosse Defeats Sonoma State 13-12
Cal senior goalkeeper Morgan Dyson made seven saves in a complete-game effort, while counterpart Jessica Colucci made 13 saves in 60 minutes for the Owls.
“The game was a battle,” Cal head coach Theresa Sherry said. “Our games with Temple usually are going to be a fight. Being on the road, we’re happy to get the win and that we’re going back to California on a positive note. The Temple goalie played real well. We were struggling to find a rhythm. I’m proud of DennaFaye Herald, Alex Tickner and Morgan Dyson for finding a way to get it done. It was not the prettiest win, but I’m happy to come away with the win on the road.
“It snowed last night about 10 inches, and they plowed the field this morning. It was pretty clear throughout the game but bearable. I’m happy with the girls winning on a chilly day.”
Chelsea Rosiek put Temple on the scoreboard first with a goal at 2:29. After a foul by the Owls’ Tracy Zimmer, Tickner converted an eight-meter shot at 4:30 to tie the game at 1-1. Rosiek then fouled Tickner, who tallied another eight-meter goal at 5:16 to give Cal a 2-1 lead.
Cal returns to Berkeley for a three-game home stand starting next Saturday, March 8, when the Bears host fellow Mountain Pacific Sports Federation team UC Davis at 1 p.m. at Memorial Field. The Bears then host a pair of non conference games when they play William and Mary at 3 p.m. on March 11 and Vermont at noon on March 14.
Cal Berkeley Women’s Lacrosse Plays #5 Penn On Friday And Temple On Sunday At Geasey Field In Philadelphia
On the past two Sundays, Cal played two other 2008 semifinalists – then-No. 3 Duke, in a 19-7 loss, on Feb. 15 and then-No. 3 Syracuse, in an 18-2 setback, on Feb. 22. The Bears will take on four-time defending national champion Northwestern on April 5 in Evanston, Ill.
California (2-2, 1-0 MPSF) travels to Philadelphia for a pair of non conference games, as the Golden Bears take on fifth-ranked Penn (1-0) on Friday, Feb. 27, at 3 p.m. PT and Temple (0-0) on Sunday, March 1, at 9 a.m. PT.
Penn is the third 2008 NCAA semifinalist on the Bears’ challenging schedule this season.
The Bears played both Penn and Temple for the first time last season, defeating Temple, 10-7, in the East West Challenge in San Diego and losing to Penn, 12-7, in Berkeley.
Penn has a 1- 0 record after defeating Drexel, 10-4, on Feb. 21 at home at Franklin Field. Junior midfielder Ali DeLuca (3 goals), a 2008 IWLCA second-team All-American, and senior attacker Becca Edwards (1 goal, 2 assists) led the Quakers with three points apiece. Junior goalie Emily Szelest made three saves in 60 minutes for Penn.
Former U.S. national team player and William & Mary All-American Karin Brower is in her 10th year as head coach of Penn, which she coached to the national championship game last season. Penn spent several weeks ranked No. 1 by the IWLCA in a year that included a regular-season victory over eventual champion Northwestern. The IWLCA and Inside Lacrosse magazine each named Brower the Coach of the Year in 2007, when she also led the Quakers to the national semifinals.
Temple opens its season with a Feb. 25 home game against Rutgers before playing Cal on Sunday also at Geasey Field. The Atlantic 10 coaches selected the Owls, the 2008 conference champions, to finish third in the conference this year.
Junior midfielder Chelsea Rosiek is Temple’s top returning scorer from last season, when she ranked fourth in points (43) and goals (27) for the Owls. Rosiek also collected 16 assists. Junior defender Tracy Zimmer ranked third on her team in ground balls (33) in 2008.
Former U.S. World Cup champion and 2008 Atlantic 10 Coach of the Year Bonnie Rosen is in her second year as Temple head coach. In her first season as Owls coach, she led her team to a first-round NCAA Tournament appearance, in which it lost to Maryland, 20-7.
Cal continues conference action when it hosts Mountain Pacific Sports Federation opponent UC Davis at 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 8, in Berkeley.
