Women’s lacrosse preview

Teams: UC Davis vs. Louisville

Records: Aggies, 5-8; Cardinals, 8-4

Where: U of L Lacrosse Stadium – Louisville, Ky.

When: Today at noon

Who to watch: After posting a measly .351 save percentage and allowing 37 goals during the team’s last two matches, senior goalkeeper Hilary Harkins looks to be back on track as the Aggies hit the final stretch of their season.

A native of Orinda, Calif., the program’s all-time saves leader recently stopped 14 of 25 shots to lead UC Davis to a victory over Cincinnati on Saturday, 12-11.

Did you know? With 12 assists on the season, senior midfielder Katie McMahon has three games remaining to get 10 more in order to become the school’s all-time assists leader.

McMahon currently holds Aggie career marks for goals (235), points (297), shots (553) and caused turnovers (121).

Preview: The Aggies are back in the winning circle after late-game heroics from senior midfielder Katie McGovern propelled UC Davis to a victory over first-year program Cincinnati.

Down 8-5 with 20 minutes left in the game, McMahon and McGovern each scored twice to get the Aggies the lead at 9-8.

After much back and forth play for the remainder of the match, Harkins’ season-high 14th save led to McGovern’s goal in the final seconds.

McMahon and McGovern each found the back of the net four times while sophomore Olivia Jarem, freshmen Jacklyn Taylor, Laura Martin and Gina Hoffmire each scored a goal for the Aggies.

Now the Aggies will make their way to Kentucky to take on another rookie program in Louisville.

Louisville is fresh off of an impressive 15-8 victory over Big East foe Connecticut.

The Cardinals are powered offensively by freshman attacker Bergan Foley, who scored a school-record seven goals in Louisville’s win over UConn.

The Huntingdon Valley, Pa. native leads her team with 56 goals and 113 shots
