FRESNO, Calif. - The Fresno State women's lacrosse team dug a hole in the first half defensively and could not quite get out of it, falling to Stanford 20-3 Tuesday evening at Bulldog Stadium in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play.
Fresno State (2-6) struggled defensively allowing 15 goals in the first 30 minutes and 21 shots. The 'Dogs retaliated offensively scoring two goals starting with attacker Kara Concheck off the bench. Freshman Marcy Levatino added the second goal to the scoreboard with eight minutes left to play in the first half.
The Bulldogs used a stronger defensive effort after halftime holding the Cardinal to five goals in the second period and adding one more for the Bulldogs with a combined effort from Taylor Fiehler and assisted by Briana Hetherington.
Goalkeeper Lisa Barnaba started her first game of the season against Stanford and played 42 minutes, recording four saves.
Fresno State heads back on the road and continues conference play against Oregon on Friday, April 6 and then head to Berkeley to face Cal on April 10 before returning home April 13 against Denver.
