Jack Scores First Ever Goal for Bulldogs
Feb. 12, 2009
FRESNO, Calif.- - The Fresno State women's lacrosse team made history once again as Heather Jack scored the program's first-ever goal in the second half of the Bulldogs game against No. 18 Stanford. Fresno State did lose 20-1. The goal came on a free position shot with 4:21 remaining in the contest.
Jack passed up the shot from the left side, ran behind the goal, then came back out just to the right of the goal and scored. Once the goal was scored, the ball was given to coach Sue Behme.
"Scoring the goal was a good thing," Behme said. "We did better than we did on Saturday (against Cal)."
A big highlight for the Bulldogs was on the defensive end where they forced 11 turnovers while Fresno State had only nine. Chelsea Davis caused three of the Cardinal turnovers.
"Our team defense stepped up," Behme said. "To force 11 turnovers was fantastic and our defense in the second half really improved."
Another area Behme saw great improvement in was the teams' ability to control ground balls. The Bulldogs won four while Stanford won five.
"We did a really good job fighting for ground balls," Behme said.
"Join the State - Fresno State!" - The `Dogs travel to Denver, Colorado to take on Canisius on Monday, February 16 at 10:00 am. They return home to Bulldog Stadium on Saturday, April 4 as they host Saint Mary's at 1:00 pm.
