The Cal field hockey team lost eight starting players from last year's squad, but last Sunday this year's team achieved the same feat that veteran players did last year.

With the Bears' 6-1 defeat of Davidson Sunday, Cal finished its conference games with a 5-0 record. Last year the Bears were also undefeated in conference going into the NorPac tournament

In the first four minutes of Sunday's match, Lea Jaeger of the Wildcats scored the first goal on a penalty corner.

Cal (9-4, 5-0 in NorPac) responded to the initial point with five different players scoring six goals. Sophomore midfielder Stephanie Lyons scored the equalizer on a penalty corner.

Senior defender Leslie Katch scored on a rebound from another penalty corner to hike up the score to 2-1.

After halftime junior forward Amber Stockstill continued the Wildcats beating. Cal's Nora Feddersen faked a shot and passed the ball to Stockstill, who scored for 3-1 lead.

Erin Robinson slapped in a goal on another penalty corner. Sophomore Pooja Mehta lifted a shot past the Davidson goalkeeper for another point.

Lyons started the Bears' scoring outburst and she capped it with another goal off a penalty corner for a final score of 6-1.

Junior midfielder Elizabeth Harkins returned to the Cal lineup Sunday after a hamstring injury put her out for over a month. She had three assists during the game.

The Bears will play their final season match this Sunday at 1 p.m. against Stanford at Kleeberger field.
