April 25, 1999
Stanford pulled out the win in what was a less than perfect game. Christina Gilyutin led the defense with her solid crease play. Stanford was challenged for the first time in many games and UCSB was ready to take the Cardinal down.
The lead never dropped below three goals, but it felt closer than that. UCSB came out for the win, and they were intense. We never really got control of the game. We play our best game when we control the tempo. Turnovers created fast break after fast break - this got to be to much for us after a while. We have worked hard this season to learn how to determine when to fast break and when to settle. We have had some awesome moments, today was somewhat of a breakdown in that control.
UP NEXT: First round playoffs at Cal on Saturday, May 1st - opponent TBA.
