The No. 18 Stanford women’s lacrosse team finished off their final road stretch with a bang this weekend, defeating No. 22 Colorado before traveling to Eugene and putting away Oregon for the second time this season.
The No. 15 women’s lacrosse team (9-4) routed the San Diego State Aztecs 18-9 (8-5, 0-0 MPSF) on Thursday evening. The win comes just four days after a tough loss to USC in triple overtime on Sunday.
On an East Coast road trip from Friday to Sunday, No. 22 Stanford women’s lacrosse (4-1, 0-0 PAC-12) took its game to New York for impressive wins against Albany (3-1, 0-0 America East) and No. 10 Stony Brook (2-2, 0-0 America East).
No. 21 Stanford women’s lacrosse (2-1, 0-0 PAC-12) took advantage of a rare sunny day on Sunday afternoon by turning up the heat on UC Davis (2-4, 1-1 MPSF) for a 19-10 victory. After a tough opening night loss to No. 13 Denver, the Cardinal has rebounded with two consecutive wins against unranked opponents to close out a three-game homestand and move above .500 for the first time in the young season.
On a wet chilly night at Cagan Field, No. 18 Stanford (0-1, 0-0 PAC-12) dropped its season opener against No. 19 Denver (1-0, 0-0 Big East) 8-7 in a game decided by inches in the very last seconds of play. Trailing 7-1 at the half, the Cardinal mounted a furious comeback that came up just short as senior Areta Buness fired a shot on goal in the waning moments of the game that caught a piece of Denver goalie Carson Gregg and rolled to a stop centimeters in front of the goal-line.
