Pacific enters the weekened with a 2-6 record after splitting four matches in four days last week in Philadelphia.

Two Tigers earned NorPac honors this week with sophomore goalkeeper Molly Macierz being named the West Defensive Player of the Week and freshman forward Nicole Laskosky being named the West Rookie of the Week. Macierz sports a 3.47 GAA this year as the lead GK of three for Pacific. Melissa Maultsby leads the Tigers with three goals and six points.
