Hannah Farr and Kyle Fraser then tallied back-to-back goals for Stanford to put the Cardinal right back into the match, 4-3.

Senior Lara Bennett was able to secure the next draw control and sophomore Nikki Puszcz found Propst to move the match to a 6-3 advantage for the Ducks with 9:46 left in the first stanza.

Oregon recorded two of the last three goals scored in the half to bring an 8-4 lead into intermission.

Farr and Rachel Hinds brought the Cardinal back within two goals of UO to open up the second half, but Ja. Drummond, Propst and junior Kate Cathell countered back with Oregon goals to give the Ducks an 11-6 cushion.

Anna Kim got one of the goals back on the next trip down field on a free possession shot after sophomore Erika McCool earned a yellow card for her foul on Kim, but it was not enough as sophomore Sami Kiser and Ja. Drummond were able put back the last two Duck goals to give Oregon the victory over Stanford.

In addition to Ja. Drummond's record-setting four goals, Kiser recorded a career-high three goals and Propst added two. Barrett tallied three assists and freshman Olivia Pyne assisted with two goals.
