MORAGA, Calif. -- The Saint Mary's lacrosse team returns to Moraga this week to host UC Davis on Friday at 6 p.m. in the Gaels' home opener.
Saint Mary's (0-2 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation) played its first two matches of the season last weekend, dropping contests against San Diego State and USC.
Leading the way offensively on the trip was the trio of Amanda Cross, Jillian Chong and Krista Morgan.
Cross found the net twice and assisted on two more goals to tally four points between the two games. Chong led the scoring charge against USC with three goals, and Morgan scored two goals against San Diego State.
Friday's match will be the first this season in MPSF play for UC Davis (1-1). The Aggies won their last match, defeating host Stetson 18-4 on Sunday.
In the win over the Hatters, Davis got three goals apiece from seniors Stephanie Guercio, Elizabeth Datino and Hannah Mirza. Datino also had four assists, tying the UC Davis all-time record of 80. She led the NCAA in points per game in 2012.
After hosting Davis on Friday, the Gaels make the trip through the Caldecott Tunnel next Tuesday to take on Cal at 4 p.m. They'll then return to SMC to host Marquette on March 10 at 1 p.m.
