Denver Beats UC Davis to Advance to MPSF Championship

DU outshot its guest by a 22-10 margin and forced 15 turnovers, as the Aggies were successful in just two of seven clear attempts before halftime. UC Davis recovered with 5 for 12 shooting after the intermission and committed just four second-half turnovers, but the Pioneers won eight of the 11 draws to protect their lead.

Junior Alyssa Cranska collected a season-best 13 saves in the contest, facing 35 Denver shots. Hoffmire finishes the season with 50 goals, becoming just the fourth player in school history to reach that plateau. Cal Aggie Athletics Hall of Famer Allison Stonebarger was the first, scoring exactly 50 in both 1998 and 1999. More recently, Katie McMahon hit that milestone in each of her four seasons.

The Pioneers advance to Sunday's MPSF title game. Stanford clipped third-seeded Cal in the opposite semifinal to earn a championship-game berth. The MPSF winner will host Atlantic-10 champion UMass in an NCAA play-in game on May 8.
