Ducks Host UCSB Under the Lights!
Oregon plays it first Friday night home game of the season when the Ducks host UC Santa Barbara Friday at 7 p.m. at Pape' Field (Pac-12 Live Stream). This will be just the second all-time meeting between the Ducks and the Gouchos. UCSB won the previous meeting, 2-0, in 2004.
WHAT TO WATCH
• Oregon leads the Pac-12 in assists per game (3.67) and is second in both goals (3.67 per game) and points (11.0 per game). Nationally, the Ducks are 11th in assists, 14th in points and 16th in goals.
• Oregon's 4-2 victory over Northern Arizona last week was the 200th win in program history.
• The Ducks have scored 11 goals in three games in 2021. Compare that to last season when the Ducks found the net 14 times in 16 games.
• Eden Hardy tallied five points - the most by a Duck since 2010 - in Sunday's win against NAU. She had a career-best two goals with an assist.
• Senior midfielder Zoe Hasenauer has had an assist in all three games this season. She is now fourth in UO career assists with 14 and is just four helpers behind UO career record holder Jen Stoltenberg (18, 2007-10).
• Sunday versus NAU, Maddy Goldberg became the first UO goalkeeper to be credited with an assist since 2010.
• Chardonnay Curran played in her 76th game as a Duck Sunday against NAU. She is on pace to become Oregon's career leader in games played Sept. 19 at Portland State.
• Ally Cook, who led the Ducks with four goals in the spring, has already scored three times this fall. Cook now has 12 career goals and is tied for 10th on the UO career list. Her game-winner versus NAU was her seventh career (T4th).
• Oregon opened the season with a 5-0 win against Fresno State, the five goals were the most for the Ducks in a single game since 2010 (6-1 vs. Butler) and the most in a season opener since 1997 (7-2, vs. San Francisco State).
• Oregon returns all 11 starters from last season's squad that posted a winning record (6-5-5) for the first time since 2006 (12-6-2), including all-conference picks Zoe Hasenauer, Croix Soto and Leah Freeman. Freeman was also named to the Pac-12 all-freshman team.
