The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos travel north to take on the CAL Bears in an early season MCLA lacrosse game.  CAL jumps to an early lead in the first quarter before the Gauchos offense turns up the heat in the second quarter.  CAL’s freshman middie from Novato High, Max McKone, scores an incredible five goals and pulls CAL to within 2 goals late in the fourth quarter, but the Gauchos win their sixth straight game of the 2014 season, 13-11.

WCLA Lacrosse: #1 Colorado State Women’s Lacrosse Captures Third National Championship With 14-4 Win Over UC Santa Barbara On May 11

Colorado State Women's Lacrosse

Colorado State capped an undefeated season, dominating UC Santa Barbara 14-4 at the El Pomar Sports Park to become the first No. 1 seed to win the US Lacrosse Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates National Championship since Cal Poly in 2007. It was the third national championship for CSU’s seniors, and avenged a loss to UC Davis in last year’s title game.
“We put a lot of pressure on ourselves because we didn’t want to feel like we did last year,” said senior Hayley Bernstein, who had five goals in the championship game and was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Midfielder. “All week we were saying we’re going to make history, and it couldn’t have turned out any better.”
The Rams made history with excellent play and some serious toughness.
“I had my appendix out a week and a half ago,” said Bernstein. “We’re such a close team when I woke up from my surgery, half my team was in the waiting room.”
She was hardly alone in showing grit. Senior midfielder Sarah Moyer got her left wrist stepped on in the semifinals and was gingerly holding it for much of the last two days. She scored two goals in the championship game. Senior Karly Slyne was wearing a knee brace from an injury she suffered on the same field last year, and ignited a key three-goal run in the first half with a goal and two assists. And senior attacker Maddie Garcia had her shoulder bandaged and was hobbling around on a bad ankle the entire tournament. She netted three goals in the championship game, and was named the tournament’s Most Outstanding Attack player.

WCLA Lacrosse: “2013 WCLA Women’s National Championships” Semifinals Feature #1 Colorado State Defeating #4 Cal Poly 23-13, #11 UC Santa Barbara Defeating #2 BYU 12-11 On May 10

2013 WCLA Championships

It was a fitting end to a record-setting day. With 14 seconds left in the game, UCSB’s Katie Mitchell buried a shot from close range after taking a pass from teammate Lindsay Alex to complete a 12-11 come-from-behind win over Brigham Young in the semifinal round of the US Lacrosse Women’s Collegiate Lacrosse Associates National Championships, presented by Harrow Sports.
The victory sends the Gauchos to Saturday’s championship game against top-seeded and unbeaten Colorado State. The Rams exploded offensively, posting 23 goals in a 23-13 win over Cal Poly.
The leader of the offense was senior Karly Slyne, who notched 12 points (7g, 5a), the second-best single game performance in the 13-year history of the tournament. It was sweet redemption for Slyne, who injured her knee last year on the same field and missed Colorado State’s championship game loss to UC Davis Club.

Recaps from Friday’s consolation games follow:

Univ. of Texas 17, Pittsburgh 13: Texas junior Tully Moorehead led all players with eight goals in its win against Pittsburgh. All 17 Texas goals were unassisted, but came from eight Longhorn players. A tied game at 13 with 7:07 to play, Texas ended on a four-goal run to seal the win. Junior Stephanie Miller led Pitt players in points, notching four goals with one assist.

Georgia 10, Santa Clara 4: Georgia held Maggie Burke, the WCLA Division I Midfielder of the Year, scoreless as Emily Seidel made nine saves to lead a strong defensive effort. Georgia held Santa Clara scoreless for more than 21 minutes in the second half. Georgia attacker Parisa Ayers led all scorers with three goals.

Minnesota 15, Florida Club 14 (2 OT): Down 9-5 at half, Ashlee Miller scored Minnesota’s last two goals of regulation to tie the game at 13 and force overtime against the Gators. Both teams added a score in the first three-minute halves of overtime, tying the game at 14, but Miller would have a hand in the winning tally after finding Lisa Hirsch for the game-winning goal of the contest with 19 seconds left in sudden victory overtime. Miller (6g) and McKinley Cardin (3g, 3a) of Florida had six points each. Florida goalie Heather Gable finished with 11 saves and Minnesota goalie Alexandra Thalhuber finished with 13.

USC  Club 19, Maryland Club 6: After receiving five yellow cards in the first half, Maryland played two players down beginning with 2:02 left in the first half.

USC graduate student Madison Aguirre made several point-blank saves for the Trojans ending the game with 10 total. Megan Lusby led Maryland with three goals and an assist.

Michigan Club 16, Northeastern 9: Northeastern scored first, but did not lead the rest of the game and Michigan pulled away scoring the last three goals of the first half and maintained at least a four-goal lead to the end of regulation. Junior Julianne Patterson and sophomore Katie Mezwa led Michigan’s attack with five points each. Brittany O’Rourke had three goals for Northeastern.

Virginia Club 19, Oregon Club 9: The Cavaliers opened the game with three-straight goals by three different scorers before Oregon got on the board eight minutes into the game. Virginia ended with nine scorers and 10 players with points. Grace Jackson (UVA) led all players with four goals and two assists. Keaton Otake (2g) and Hanna Peper (1g, 1a) led Oregon in points.
