Following a seven-point performance in her debut as a Duck, Oregon sophomore Shonly Wallace was named the Pac-12 offensive player of the week for lacrosse on Monday.
Wallace scored five goals and assisted on two others to help Oregon open the season with a 20-12 victory over Liberty. Oregon was one of five programs (Duke, Northwestern, Richmond, Syracuse) to score 20 goals in a game this past week as it extended its win streak in season openers to seven.
A transfer from Stony Brook, Wallace’s seven points were the most by a Pac-12 player over the opening weekend and tied for the second most in a season opener in program history. Wallace and junior Lillian Stump each scored five goals in the win, equaling the program record for goals in a season opener.
Wallace wasted little time making an immediate impact in her debut, as she scored three goals and had an assist over the opening 30 minutes of Saturday’s game. After scoring one goal in six games as a freshman at Stony Brook last year, Wallace found the back of the net twice in the opening 10:04.
