Stanford has consistently been led by senior leaders Elizabeth Cusick and Kelsey Murray as Murray has scored five goals in the last two Cardinal wins to power Stanford’s offense.

Lacrosse finds success while returning home

After a recent tough slate, Stanford lacrosse (8-5, 3-1 MPSF) got the much-needed conference win against the Fresno State Bulldogs (8-6, 1-5 MPSF) in dominant fashion by scoring 10 unanswered goals to start the game and finishing with a 17-4 victory.

The Cardinal’s usual playmakers once again fully displayed their offensive powers as the likes of Kelsey Murray and Elizabeth Cusick led their team to an offensive blowout against conference opponent Bulldogs. Murray started the game remarkably, finding the back of the net 5 times in the opening 15 minutes to propel Stanford on its first half run that essentially ended the game before it started.
