Mission’s Shonly Wallace made an instant impact in her first game with the University of Oregon Ducks lacrosse team over the weekend.
Wallace scored five goals and added two assists to help lead the Ducks to a 20-12 win over Liberty University on Saturday.
The seven points she recorded were the most points ever by a Pac-12 player during the opening weekend and tied for the second most in a season opener in the history of the Ducks lacrosse program.
Wallace scored three goals and added an assist in the first 30 minutes of the game, including two goals in the game’s first 10 minutes.
The Mission Lacrosse Club product was named the Pac-12 offensive player of the week for her efforts.
Wallace spent last season at Stony Brook University in New York, scoring one goal in six appearances.
She was also a key part of a Team Canada squad that earned silver at the 2019 U19 World Championships. She scored 13 goals and added four assists at that event.
Wallace and the Ducks head to Florida this weekend with games against Jacksonville on Friday and Stetson University on Sunday.
The team then travels to Denver on Feb. 21 before returning home on March 1.
