Women’s lacrosse preview

Teams: UC Davis vs. St. Mary’s

Records: Aggies, 4-10 (2-4); Gaels 3-10 (0-4)

Where: Aggie Stadium

When: Thursday at 7 p.m.

Who to watch: Gina Hoffmire led the Aggies in scoring in Sunday’s 18-5 loss to Denver by finding the back of the net twice. The sophomore midfielder is now second on the team in scoring with 27 goals.

Leading scorer Britt Farquharson (32 goals) and third-leading scorer Christina Corsa (24 goals) each tickled the twine once on Sunday.

Did you know? This will be the second matchup between the Aggies and Gaels this season. The two teams squared off in a 14-13 overtime thriller that went UC Davisway in Moraga on Feb. 22, giving it its first win of the year.

Preview: The Aggies battled Denver closely in the first half of Sunday’s contest, trailing just 4-2 heading into halftime.

The game’s second session, though, was a different story, as Denver scored 14 of the 17 second-half goals to pick up the win.

Both UC Davis and St. Mary’s have struggled this season, combining to drop 15 of their past 19 games. Although both clubs are a part of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, Thursday’s game at Aggie Stadium will be counted as a non-conference contest since the two teams have already faced one another.

The Aggies hope to recapture some of the momentum they picked up when they knocked off the Gaels earlier this season as the MPSF Championship looms on the horizon.
