Glagolev's Five Goals Not Enough in Loss to Stanford
STANFORD, Calif. – Sun Devil Lacrosse fell to Stanford in their Pac-12 road opener on Friday night at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium.
Arizona State (3-3, 2-1) found themselves trailing a majority of the game, but put forth a valiant comeback effort to pull to as close as three goals, before eventually losing 19-11. The Maroon & Gold will look to re-group for their next game, as they stay in the Bay Area to take on California on Sunday at 12 PM.
Emily Glagolev and Carley Adams attempted to take over the game, each delivering a spectacular offensive performance. They both eclipsed the 100-career goal mark in style, finishing with a combined 10 points. Katie Brodsky and Taylor Pinzone joined them in scoring 3+ points, allowing ASU to keep pace with Stanford through two and a half quarters.
Arizona State had cut what was once a seven goal Stanford lead to only three thanks to a 4-0 run that spanned from the end of the second quarter through the start of the third. The Cardinal had a run of their own, extending an 11-8 lead to 16-8 after scoring five unanswered goals. The Sun Devils threatened with a few late goals, but the Cardinal put the game away in the fourth quarter by a 19-11 score.
- Emily Glagolev was brilliant offensively, scoring five goals and dishing out an assist.

- Katie Brodsky was credited with three assists, as she continues to emerge as a passer.
- This is her fourth straight game with multiple assists.

The Carley Adams to Emily Glagolev connection was working early, as the two attackers teamed up to score the first two Sun Devil goals. However, a 3-0 Stanford run gave them an early 5-2 advantage. Coach McCormack took a timeout to re-group the team and it worked to perfection, as ASU would score eight seconds later. For the third time in the period Carley Adams fed Emily Glagolev for a goal, cutting into the Stanford lead. A late Cardinal goal extended their lead to 6-3 before the end of the period.
Arizona State struck first in the quarter, as the Emily Glagolev takeover continued. She scored her fourth goal of the game, finishing off a perfect pass from Katie Brodsky. A 5-0 Stanford run created the most separation of the game to that point, as the Cardinal took a 11-4 lead. Carley Adams came through with a much-need goal, snapping the Stanford run and making it 11-5 at the half.
The Sun Devils came out extremely strong in the second half, scoring the first three goals of the third quarter. Taylor Pinzone opened the scoring in the third quarter, converting off a great feed from Emily Glagolev. Emily Munro followed that up by firing a free-position shot past the Cardinal goalkeeper. Only 18 seconds later, Maddy Hunter somehow found an opening on a back-hand shot to cut the lead to three. Stanford answered with a run of their own, scoring the next five goals to retake a commanding lead. Goalkeeper Flynn Murphy game into the game with 1:13 left in the period. No scoring occurred for the rest of the quarter, with Stanford holding a 16-8 lead.
Just like in the third quarter, ASU came out with the first goal, as Taylor Pinzone finished through contact after receiving a pass from Katie Brodsky. Stanford would respond with two straight goals to capture their largest lead of the game, 18-9. Arizona State would not go down without a fight, as Taylor Pinzone and Emily Glagolev allowed the Sun Devils to score two of the final three goals.

The game will be broadcasted on Pac-12 Regional Bay Area Network and the Pac-12 Now App, with more information available here. Rounding out the road trip is a showdown with USC on Friday, Mar. 25.
