THE DUCKS vs. THE AGGIES
UC Davis is one of Oregon's most-common opponents with 21 previous matchups between the two teams, which shared a conference for many years before the Pac-12 began sponsoring lacrosse. The Ducks own a 14-7 record all-time and a 6-1 record as the visiting team, but the Aggies have won the last four games. UC Davis enters the game with a 1-2 record against Pac-12 opponents, beating Cal and losing to Colorado and Stanford.
Oregon has been able to rely on several players for offensive production this season. Through eight games, seven Ducks (Katie Collins, Alyssa Wright, Bailey Smith, Morgan McCarthy, Shonly Wallace, Hanna Hilcoff and Lillian Stump) have recorded a hat trick. Both McCarthy (Mercer) and Stump (George Mason, San Diego State) have recorded three goals and three assists in a game.
Senior defender Sydney Lawrence has wreaked havoc for opposing offenses this season. In her fourth season with the team, the Plano, Texas-native has found a role on the UO defense where she can force opponents to plenty of mistakes. She ranks second in the Pac-12 in caused turnovers (15) and caused turnovers per game (1.50).
