FRESNO, Calif. --- The Fresno State lacrosse team fell to No. 19 Stanford 19-5 on Wednesday night at Bulldog Stadium.

"Playing teams like Stanford in our conference is going to make us better," said Fresno State head coach Jessica Pausewang. "I look forward to watching us translate what we learned from this into games."

Stanford went on an 8-0 run to start the game in the first 10 minutes of play. Fresno State broke the streak with a free position goal from freshman Chelsea Hall to get on the board.

The Bulldogs allowed the Cardinal to score three more goals before freshman Sarah Goetz found the back of the net for the 'Dogs second goal of the night.

After trailing Stanford 15-2 at the break, senior Kara Concheck came out to score the first goal of the second half with 26 minutes left in the game. Concheck went on to score two more goals against the Cardinal to record her first hat trick of the season.

"Kara had really well-placed shots today, and Lisa Barnaba and Ashley Phillips are doing great things for us on the defensive side," added Pausewang. "Going forward we are definitely going to use all of our senior leadership on the field."

The 'Dogs held Stanford to four goals in the second half, though were unable to comeback from their first half deficit, dropping their second conference game of year to the Cardinal, 19-5.

Fresno State (1-4, 0-2 MPSF) continues conference play when they host first year program Colorado on Saturday at noon in Bulldog Stadium.
