    DAVIS, Calif. - Colorado's lacrosse team recovered from a slow start to beat UC Davis 14-3 on Friday on the road as the Buffaloes resumed conference play. They improved to 8-2 overall and 3-0 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation after a stretch of seven straight non-conference games. UC Davis dropped to 3-4 overall and 1-1 in the MPSF.

    CU rallied from a 3-2 deficit late in the first half to score the final 12 goals of the game.

    "Honestly UC Davis, they're a good team," head coach Ann Elliott said. "They're well-coached. They played extremely hard. I don't think we came out doing the little things. We had unforced turnovers in the beginning and we got frustrated and quite frankly got out-played. But our kids were able to turn it around."
    ...

    "I think offensively, we were a little slow in the beginning," Elliott said. "We have to run by people and dodge hard. Their goalie (Lauren Ali) played really well with 17 saves, but we need to finish our shots. We need to use our speed and those are things we need to continue to work on."

    The Buffs will face their third ranked opponent of the season on Sunday when they travel to No. 12/10 Stanford for a 12 p.m. PT game.

    A road win over Stanford would be so big. Seems like Elliott's program has already surpassed DU and the main rival to reach the top of the conference has become Stanford.
