DU Women's Lax Loses Championship To Stanford

From: LaxPower.com

The No. 18 University of Denver women's lacrosse team took No. 15 Stanford to double overtime, but the Cardinal's Karen Nesbitt scored a sudden victory goal to give Stanford an 11-10 win in the championship game of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championship Tournament on Sunday afternoon at Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium.

“I am very proud of how we played against a tough Stanford team,” head coach Liza Kelly said. “We showed a lot of heart and emotion on the field. I am especially proud of our seniors who stepped up and showed their leadership.”

No. 1 seed Denver (13-5) took an early 2-1 lead, but No. 2 seed Stanford (14-5) scored five-straight goals over a nearly 29-minute stretch.

Ali Flury's hat trick gave her 202 career goals, the most in Denver history, and her 236 points ranks third in the program's record book. Flury scored at least one point in all 69 career games at Denver and had a goal in her final 48 games, both the second longest streaks in the NCAA.

Do the Lady Pioneers still make it into the NCAA tourney?

All I could find online is that Stanford will play in the NCAA "Play-In" game against UMass, so it doesn't look like DU will make it.
