Posted by Beth Maiman on Tuesday, Apr. 9 at 9:28 pm.

The women’s lacrosse team looks to pick up their first MPSF conference win tomorrow when they face the Fresno State Bulldogs in their fourth road game of the season. The Ducks started out the season strong, but have fell into a slump, losing six of their last seven games.

However, with the Bulldogs also winless in conference, a victory is in the cards for the Ducks. Oregon is 5-0 all-time against Fresno State and was victorious in their last match against the Bulldogs 21-4.

Oregon is 1-2 on the road this season and 5-7 overall. Freshman Carly O’Connell and junior Shannon Propst have been key offensive threats for the Ducks. O’Connell received MPSF rookie of the week for the second time this season. She posted four goals and three assists in Oregon’s last game against Cal. Propst leads the Ducks in assists this season with 26. Propst is only eight assists away from setting the single-season record for assists.

The first draw in tomorrow’s match is set for 1 p.m.
