MORAGA, Calif. - Junior forward Liz Eisenberg posted a hat trick as California breezed to a 5-1 victory over San Jose State Sunday at Garaventa Field on the final day of the Saint Mary's Invitational. The Golden Bears improved to 4-1-1, while the Spartans dropped to 1-5.
Cal scored three goals in less than a minute to jump out to a 3-0 lead. Eisenberg started the onslaught with a goal at 17:25, off of an assist from sophomore midfielder Nadia Al-Lami. Junior forward Dania Cabello followed with an unassisted goal at 18:17, and Eisenberg tallied her second goal at 18:37, with an assist credited to Lindsay Clute.
San Jose State cut the deficit to 3-1 with a goal from Shannon Leslie in the 32nd minute.
Al-Lami joined the scoring parade in the second half with a goal at 57:43 after receiving a pass from Alivia Mazura. Eisenberg, who now leads the team with 10 points and five goals this season, capped the Bears' attack with a score in the 80th minute, and Al-Lami earned the assist.
