Stanford, Calif. - Stanford women's lacrosse (4-0, 2-0 MPLL) posted a 15-9 victory over Denver (1-1, 1-1 MPLL) this afternoon at Maloney Field. Sophomore Julia Calzonetti led the Cardinal with three goals and two assists as Stanford outshot the Pioneers 36-19. Cardinal keepers Kate Horowitz and Christina Saikus combined for 15 saves.

Sophomore Kelsey Twist put the first score up for Stanford with a goal less than two minutes into the match. The Cardinal built up the lead to 3-0 before Denver notched its first goal at 14:39. Stanford kept ahead of the Pioneers, though, and took a 7-3 margin into halftime. Horowitz started for Stanford in goal and picked up six saves in the first thirty minutes.

Saikus took over the net for the second half and collected nine saves. Denver tallied a quick goal to open the half, but Stanford tacked on four consecutive scores to build the lead up to 11-4. With four minutes left, Denver's Patience Baldwin netted her third goal of the day to cut the Pioneers' deficit to 13-9, but Stanford freshmen Cassie Harvey and Sarah Bach each scored in the final two minutes to seal the 15-9 victory.

Stanford will be back in action next Sunday, March 9th as Georgetown visits The Farm for the 2nd Annual East/West Challenge. Game time is set for noon.
