SANTA BARBARA, Calif. --- Day two of the 2013 UCSB Winter Invite was more of the same for California Baptist University. The Lancers went 0-2 on the day and are now  0-5 on the season.

The No. 18 Lancers took on some stiff competition on this day, as they met the 2012 National Collegiate Athletic Association champions and No. 1 Stanford Cardinal.

Despite its best efforts, CBU was only able to muster up one goal against the champs, a third quarter score by Doris Tran. The lack of offensive firepower led to a 19-1 loss.

The next game seemed to hold more promise for the struggling Lancers, as they faced a team that they were 2-1 against all-time.

CBU's faltering offense provided some punch against Sonoma State, but despite three goals from Hannah Evans, and two each from Laura Kocsis and Molly Gritchen, the Lancers fell just short.

They fell behind early, trailing 5-4 at the half, but a strong third quarter pushed them ahead 7-6 heading into the final frame.

The Seawolves fought their way back into the game in the last quarter and sent the game to overtime tied 9-9. Sonoma State scored once in the first overtime period, and the Lancers failed to score, leaving them with another loss, 10-9.

The winless Lancers look to right the ship at home next weekend as they host their first tournament of the 2013 season.

Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, Concordia, CSU Bakersfield, CSU Northridge, CSU San Bernardino, San Diego State and UC Irvine come to the Lancer Aquatics Center for the eight game Lancer Mini Invite on Feb. 2.
