Hilcoff Named All-Pac-12 Second Team

///

EUGENE, Ore. – Oregon lacrosse sophomore Hanna Hilcoff has earned Pac-12 all-conference second team honors, the league office announced on Wednesday.
 
Hilcoff is the eighth Duck to receive first- or second-team all-conference recognition since the Pac-12 established lacrosse as a conference sport in 2018.
 
A Jupiter, Fla., native, Hilcoff led the Ducks for the second straight season with 35 goals and 54 draw controls as a sophomore. She ranks fifth in the Pac-12 in both categories, and is the only player in the conference with at least 30 goals and 40 draw controls.
 
Hilcoff accounted for more than 30 percent of Oregon’s 114 total goals in 2021, finding the net multiple times in 10 of the Ducks’ 12 games. Hilcoff opened the season with seven straight multi-goal performances and had six hat tricks or better, including a six-goal performance vs. Stanford on March 22. She has scored multiple goals in 16 of 19 games to open her collegiate career.
 
A force on the draw as well as around the net, Hilcoff’s 54 draw controls made up nearly 45 percent of Oregon’s total draws won on the season. She grabbed five or more draw controls in each of the final five games of the season, and came up one short of her own UO single-game record with a season-high nine on April 4 vs. USC. Hilcoff also added 13 ground balls and five caused turnovers on the season.

First-Half Run By UC Davis Too Much For Ducks To Overcome

///

EUGENE, Ore. – A 12-0 scoring run by UC Davis to close the first half proved to be the difference for the Oregon women’s lacrosse team in a 19-9 loss on Saturday afternoon at Papé Field.
 
How it Happened: The Ducks (3-9) jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals by freshmen Nakeeya McCardell and Morgan McCarthy, with McCardell opening the scoring on a pass from Lillian Stump and McCarthy converting on a free-position shot.
 
It was all UC Davis for the final 22-plus minutes of the half, as the Aggies (9-4) scored 12 unanswered goals to take a 12-2 lead into the break.
 
Oregon started well again in the second half, scoring three straight to cut UC Davis’ lead to 12-5. The Ducks opened with a man-up advantage following a yellow card on the Aggies late in the first half, and Alli Bateman capitalized less than a minute in with a goal on another assist from Stump. McCardell followed with her second goal of the game, and leading scorer Hanna Hilcoff notched her first of the day at the 24:58 mark.
 
UC Davis responded with a goal at the 24:40 mark, but McCardell and Hilcoff again scored back-to-back goals to get Oregon within six, 13-7. Hilcoff answered another Aggies goal with her third of the day with 15 minutes left, joining McCardell with a hat trick and bringing the deficit back to six.
 
The Aggies extended their lead to eight with less than 11 minutes to go before McCarthy scored her second goal to make it 16-9, but UC Davis finished the game with three consecutive goals. Oregon played even with the Aggies in the second half, 7-7, but that 10-goal deficit from the first half was too much to overcome.
 
Who Stood Out: Hilcoff and McCardell each had a hat trick with three goals apiece. Hilcoff added a team-high six draw controls, and McCardell stuffed the stat sheet with four draw controls, three caused turnovers and three ground balls. McCarthy scored twice and also had three caused turnovers and three ground balls, and Stump assisted on a pair of goals. Alle Dunbar finished with seven saves in net.
 
Notable: Hilcoff has scored in 19 straight games to open her career, and she has scored multiple goals in 16 those contests … Hilcoff had a hat trick or better for the sixth time this season and 10th time in her career … McCardell scored multiple goals for the fifth time while earning her first hat trick, and McCarthy also notched her fifth multi-goal performance … Stump recorded multiple assists for the third time this season and fourth in her career … Hilcoff grabbed five or more draw controls for the sixth time in the last eight games, and 10th time in her career … Dunbar now has 118 saves on the season, moving past Louisa Dorsch (117, 2005) into No. 8 on the Oregon single-season list.
 
Up Next: Oregon will close out the 2021 regular season against Colorado on Friday, April 23, at 6 p.m. PT at Papé Field. The Ducks will honor Stump, Dunbar, Marlee Moon Gaddy, Olivia Mannon and Rachel Williams in a Senior Day ceremony prior to the start of the game.

Ducks Hang On For 9-8 Win In Berkeley

///

BERKELEY, Calif. – The Oregon women’s lacrosse team built a six-goal lead over California early in the second half and then survived a comeback attempt by the Golden Bears to leave Berkeley with a 9-8 win on Friday night at California Memorial Stadium.
 
The Ducks (2-8, 2-4 Pac-12) got their final road trip of the spring off to a strong start while completing a regular-season sweep of the Golden Bears after picking up a 14-9 victory last month in Eugene.
 
How it Happened: Cal (2-10, 0-6 Pac-12) scored six minutes into the game to take a 1-0 lead, but freshman Nakeeya McCardell responded for the Ducks five minutes later on a pass from sophomore Katie Collins. Freshman Haley Cummins gave Oregon its first lead of the day at the 15:24 mark with her third goal of the season.
 
Freshman Lindsay Clarke put Oregon back in front with a goal less than a minute after Cal evened the score, and Collins followed with an unassisted goal of her own to make it 4-2. The Golden Bears cut Oregon’s lead to one just a minute later, but the Ducks answered with three straight scores to take a 7-3 lead into halftime. Collins scored her second of the half on a free-position attempt, and scoring leaders Hanna Hilcoff and Lillian Stump each followed with their first goals of the game to give Oregon a four-goal advantage.
 
Oregon extended its scoring run to 5-0 to open the second half, with Morgan McCarthy finding the net on a free-position shot before Stump scored her second of the day on an assist from Hilcoff. But Cal came storming back with a 5-0 run of its own over the next 22-plus minutes, cutting Oregon’s lead to 9-8 with 5:43 left in the game.
 
The Ducks were unable to muster any more offense down the stretch, but the defense kept the pressure on the Golden Bears. Cal had a decent look with 2:35 remaining, but the shot ricocheted off the post. The home team had one more chance after an Oregon turnover with 35 seconds left and took a timeout with five seconds remaining, but Cal’s final shot was blocked and the Ducks held on for the victory.
 
Who Stood Out: Seven different players scored for the Ducks, with Stump and Collins each finding the back of the net twice. Clarke, Cummins, Hilcoff, McCardell and McCarthy each had one goal, and Collins and Hilcoff each recorded an assist. Logan Gierke and Olivia Mannon each had three caused turnovers to lead the defense while Lexie Likins forced two, and Hilcoff grabbed five draw controls. Senior Alle Dunbar notched three saves in net while allowing a season-low eight goals.
 
Notable: Collins led the Ducks with three total points, her first career game of three points or more … Stump scored multiple goals for the eighth time this season and 22nd time in her career, while Collins recorded the first multi-goal game of her career … Hilcoff has now scored in 17 straight games to open her collegiate career … Oregon had the advantage on total shots (25-20) for the first time this season … UO caused double-digit turnovers (12) for the fifth time this season.
 
Up Next: The Ducks will play at Fresno State on Sunday at 11 a.m. PT. The game against the Bulldogs replaces Oregon’s originally-scheduled contest at Stanford, which was canceled due to COVID-19 developments within the Cardinal program.

Hilcoff has carried the Oregon offense along with senior Lillian Stump (18 goals) and freshman Morgan McCarthy (10); that trio has combined to account for 66.3 percent (55-of-83) of the Ducks’ total goals.

Senior goalkeeper Alle Dunbar has been racking up saves through the first nine games of her senior season, ranking third in the Pac-12 and 11th in the nation with 96 total after setting a new career-high with 15 on March 28 at USC. Dunbar entered 2021 with a career-high of 12 saves – done in the 2020 season finale – and has bested that mark four times already with last week’s 15-save game, two 14-save showings and one 13-save performance. Dunbar has recorded double-digit saves in five of nine games as a senior, and she is ninth in the NCAA with 10.67 saves per game. Dating back to the 2020 finale vs. Fresno State, Dunbar has recorded 108 total saves in her last 10 games. 

Freshmen Stepping Up
The Ducks have started two true freshmen midfielders – Nakeeya McCardell and Morgan McCarthy – in each of the first nine games of the season, and fellow rookies Lindsay Clarke (6 starts), Haley Cummins (5) and Sydnie Soto (4) have also made multiple appearances in the starting lineup. McCarthy is third on the team with 10 goals and five assists, and she has come on strong recently with four total points in each of the last two games and her first career hat trick on Sunday vs. USC.
