Final Stats

DAVIS, Calif. - Sophomore Leanne Zilioli scored four goals and Elizabeth Reifsnyder added three more to lead UC Berkeley to a 17-10 over UC Davis in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation women's lacrosse game at Aggie Field Saturday. The Golden Bear win overshadowed the performance of Aggie freshman Katie McMahon, whose four goals helped her break her school's single-season scoring record.

The Aggies fall to 9-4 on the year, and 1-3 in MPSF competition. Cal improves to 7-8 overall and 2-1 in conference.

McMahon finished the game with 52 goals for the year, breaking Jaime Fitzpatrick's 2003 mark of 51. Senior Kelly Albin matched her with four goals. Senior Leslie Kado contributed two assists, tying Alison Stonebarger's career total of 62 as the school's recordholder in that category.

Albin assisted McMahon on the game's first goal within the first minute of play, but the Golden Bears answered with a 5-0 run. Carly Preble, Zilioli and Reifsnyder each scored within a 2:25 span midway through the first half as part of that stretch. Albin and McMahon each added another first-half goal, but Zilioli and senior Julianne Wu matched them score for score to give Cal a 7-3 lead at the break.

After Reifsnyder added an unassisted score at the 35:03 mark, Monger and McMahon punched in goals at 35:17 and 39:49, respectively, to bring UC Davis within three. However, that was the closest Aggies approached in the second half. On two of UC Davis' second-half goals, Cal responded with its own goal on the ensuing draw.

Goalkeeper Kristen Braasch posted 13 saves in net for the Aggies, while her counterpart Hilary Lynch had eight. Cal's Colleen O'Mara, already the national leader in the category, led all players with three assists.



UC Davis plays its final home game on Sunday against Colorado College. The contest, previously scheduled for 1 p.m., has moved up two hours to 11 a.m.
