Scouting The Ducks
Despite leading for most of the second half of its season-opener against No. 20 Hofstra, Oregon couldn't pull of the victory and fell 12-11 on Sunday. Bina Barrett scored a career-high five goals, and Jana Drummond added four goals, as the Ducks nearly posted the program's first win over a ranked foe since the 2008 season.

or more, including last season's 18-6 win in Fresno.
Last Time Out
Despite a three-goal effort by freshman Rachel Minarovich, the Bulldogs were overwhelmed by UC Davis on Saturday and fell 21-5 at Aggie Stadium. Sophomore Amanda
Cross added two goals for the Bulldogs, pushing her season total to four. She also recorded an assist. The Aggies outshot Fresno State 45-6.
A Look Back At Year 2
"We Are Your Team!"
The Bulldogs experienced undeniable growth during the 2010 season. Indeed, Fresno
State improved in many statistical categories from its first season in 2009. Krisdina Gehring became the first Fresno State lacrosse player to earn all conference honors as she earned second-team All-Mountain Pacific Sports Federation as a defender last season. Gehring was second in the conference in caused turnovers a game at 1.93. She had 27 total caused turnovers which was a team-best.
