A gritty second half and a clutch goal in overtime by Marissa Cicione capped a 3-2 come-from-behind win over No. 24 Pacific Saturday sending No. 18 Stanford to the America East Conference Championship Game for the second consecutive year.
Stanford was well-represented at the America East Conference awards banquet Wednesday night, with Kelsey Bing and Corinne Zaonlli earning Goalkeeper of the Year and Rookie of the Year honors, respectively along with six named to the All-Conference team.
No. 18 Stanford travels east again this week as it sets to defend its 2016 America East crown. The Cardinal will take on host UMass Lowell in quarterfinal action Thursday at 12:30 p.m. while looking to advance to Saturday's semifinals.
