"We need to keep shooting and keep working for good shots and when we get more adept at running our offense and become better shooters our whole scheme is really going to pay off," added Ramsey.

UCSB junior Katie Mitchell (Lafayette, CA) led all scorers with 4 goals and 4 assists during limited action and 9 Gauchos got in on the scoring with either goals or assists.
