Pioneers Prevail over Aztecs, 17-12

Feb. 23, 2018
DENVER— It was a tale of two halves as the University of Denver defeated San Diego State by a score of 17-12 on Friday afternoon at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium.
The first half was all Denver, as the Pioneers outshot San Diego State 24-5, held a 10-5 draw control and 11-7 ground ball advantage in the opening half, and took a commanding 13-3 lead into the break.
The second half was the Aztecs’ half, as they outscored the Crimson and Gold 9-4, scoring on five of their six free-position shots and won 10 of the 14 draws.
Early on it looked like the game would be all Denver, as the Pioneers were able to take advantage of free-position shots, converting on five of their 11 first-half attempts, as they raced out to an early 6-0 lead.
Once again, the Pioneers scored the opening goal as Julia Feiss opened up the contest with a free-position goal 1:04 into the game (28:56). Over a minute later, Feiss added another free-position goal (26:49), and would ultimately finish with a team-high four goals.
The lead grew to 3-0 after freshman Eliza Radochonski recorded a free-position goal with 21:19 left in the half. Kendra Lanuza made it 4-0 with a no-look, over the shoulder goal (18:48), the junior’s 100th career point. Lanuza is the 17th player in DU history to reach that mark.
Feiss’ third goal of the game came on another free-position shot (17:28) and Quintin Hoch-Bullen would make it six-straight for the home team with an unassisted goal with 14:52 left in the half.
UP NEXT: Denver heads to Stony Brook to play the No. 2 ranked Seawolves on Sunday at 10 a.m. MT. The next Pioneers home game is Wednesday, March 7 against Virginia Tech, scheduled to start at noon.
