Davis, Calif. - Stanford (1-0, 1-0 MPLL) opened its 2003 season today against UC Davis (0-1, 0-1 MPLL) and earned a 12-8 win over the Aggies. The Cardinal was led by sophomore Nina Pantano who netted three goals and tallied one assist.

The Cardinal more than tripled the Aggies on shots, taking 40 while limiting UC Davis to only 12. The Aggies were able to convert their shots in the first period and were down only 6-5 at the half. In the second half, the Cardinal chalked up four goals in the first 15 minutes to extend its lead to 11-6 en route to the final 12-8 victory.

UC Davis put the first score on the board, but Pantano rallied for the Cardinal before senior Kim Cahill and freshman Megan Burker posted goals to give Stanford a 3-1 edge. UC Davis put together a few strong offensive minutes and reclaimed the lead at 4-3 with 11:27 remaining in the first half. Burker added her second goal of the day just over one minute later before junior Jess Scott notched a goal for the Cardinal 5-4 advantage. Just under the five minute mark, UC Davis tied the match again, but with less than four minutes to go, sophomore Kelsey Twist put Stanford ahead 6-5 going into halftime.

Stanford opened the second half with a 5-1 run, with two goals from Pantano and one apiece from Cahill, Twist and freshman Sarah Bach. Junior Abbi Hills posted the final goal of the day with just under a minute left for the 12-8 win.

In goal, junior Christina Saikus tallied two saves while freshman Kate Horowitz collected her first collegiate save.

The Cardinal open the 2003 home season next Saturday, February 22nd at 1 pm at Maloney Field against the New Hampshire Wildcats.
