NCAA Lacrosse: Stanford Women’s Lacrosse “2011 Media Guide” Shows The Cardinal “Reaching For New Heights”


NCAA Lacrosse: #7 Stanford Women’s Lacrosse (13-1) Captures Top Seed In MPSF With 18-13 Win At Oregon April 15

No. 7 Stanford took control of the MPSF, clinching the No.1 seed in the conference tournament with a solid 18-13 defeat of Oregon.

The win for Stanford (13-1, 5-0 MPSF) leaves the Cardinal as the only undefeated team remaining in the conference, clinching at least a share of the regular season title. “I am really happy with offensive production against a tough MPSF opponent on the road,” said head coach Amy Bokker. “We came out really strong in the second half and finished some great opportunities.” Leslie Foard led the Cardinal on Friday as the senior had five goals and an assist, converting all five of her free-position shots. Foard also contributed three draw controls and caused four turnovers. Stanford fell behind early on as Oregon came out energized and built a 3-1 lead. The Cardinal fought back and took the lead for good with 7:01 remaining in the first half as Jacqueline Candelaria found the back of the net for the second time. The goal gave Stanford a 5-4 lead, which it would build to 7-5 at haltime. Foard had a first half hat trick, while Candelaria and Sarah Flynn each had a pair of first-half goals. The Cardinal outshot the Ducks 18-12 in the half, while Annie Read made seven of her nine saves in the period.

Northern California High School Lacrosse: Menlo School Girls Lacrosse (9-4) Loses Wild Double-Overtime Game 17-16 To Rival St. Ignatius On April 12

The Menlo School girls’ lacrosse team jumped out to a 4-0 lead, gave up nine straight goals, battled its way into double overtime but still dropped a 17-16 nonleague decision to visiting St. Ignatius on Tuesday.

The loss marked the 12th straight year that Menlo coach Jen Lee has lost to the Wildcats. “Menlo came closer than ever, really and truly, to earn a regulation win against its local and legitimate nemesis — St. Ignatius,” Lee said.

Menlo (9-4) jumped out to a 4-0 lead on four straight goals by sophomore middie Ali Kim. The Wildcats, however, then scored nine unanswered goals to grab a 9-5 halftime lead. Menlo trailed by 11-5 with 18:07 left to play before launching a comeback with six straight goals in the span of 8:28 to tie SI at 11 with 8:03 left to play.

Menlo took a 13-12 lead on goals by Kacie Madeira and Michaela Michael, but SI forced overtime with a goal with just 14 seconds left. After SI took a 16-15 lead in the first overtime, Menlo’s Savannah McKinnon raced up the middle, was fouled and passed to junior Sophie Sheeline, who scored to make it 16-16 with just 10 seconds left to play. After taking a break before the second “sudden-victory” overtime, SI finally scored to end the marathon match.
