The UC Davis Lacrosse team came into last week in a three-way tie with Stanford and California for the fourth and final spot in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament.
Losses to both Stanford and Fresno State for their final two MPSF matches, however, eliminated UC Davis from postseason contention.
UC Davis started the week at Aggie Stadium against Stanford. The Cardinal had a half-game lead for the fourth spot entering the game but the Aggies were determined to overtake their MPSF foe.
UC Davis and Stanford started off the game exchanging 4-0 runs in the first half. The Aggies trailed by just one goal at halftime. The Aggies went on a 6-0 run to take a 16-12 lead at one point, but the advantage was not big enough. Stanford responded with a 6-0 run of their own and eventually won 19-18.
The Aggies then took on Fresno State but were not able to finish their conference play with a victory. The Bulldogs scored in overtime to defeat the Aggies 12-11.
They will take on Saint Mary’s on Tuesday in the season finale.
