Durham, NH - The Cardinal (7-7 overall, 6-0 MPLL) surged back from an 8-2 deficit in the middle of the second half and out-scored the Eagles (10-4 overall, 4-0 America East) 7-2 in the final 20 minutes of the game en route to their 10-9 loss today at New Hampshire. This game snaps Stanford's four-game winning streak and puts the team even at 7-7 for the season.
Stanford took a quick 1-0 lead to start the game with a goal by freshman Julia Calzonetti at 28 seconds. New Hampshire's Sue Yund answered with a goal at 5:57 and she was countered by the Cardinal freshman Nina Pantano, who had the first of her two goals at 6:24 to put Stanford ahead 2-1. This was the last lead for the Cardinal, however, after the Eagles scored 4 unanswered goals to go into the intermission up 5-2.
New Hampshire started the second half with another 2 goals, but the Cardinal attacked at 39:41 and freshman Kelsey Twist scored 4 goals over the next 10 minutes to bring the score to 9-6 with 10 minutes left to play. New Hampshire's Jessie Groszkowski, who led all scorers with 6 goals, added the final Eagle goal at 51:17. Stanford came back with goals by sophomore Abbi Hills, senior tri-captain Liz Britt and another by Pantano, but both teams were kept scoreless for the final 2 minutes and the Eagles came away with the 10-9 victory.
Twist's 4 goals put her at 28 goals this season, tying her for 9th in the record book for single-season goals. She currently leads the team in scoring with 28 goals and 9 assists for 37 points. Twist is one of four freshman topping the squad this year, she is joined by J. Calzonetti with 28 points, Claire Calzonetti with 22 points and Pantano also with 22 points.
Following this trip the Cardinal head back to the West Coast to battle California, in Berkeley, on Saturday, April 27th at 2pm, then they finish up the regular season with a match at home vs. the UC Davis Aggies on Tuesday, April 30th at 7pm.
