The Oregon State Beavers made headlines all season long. They ended the regular season 11-3, with all three losses coming to ranked opponents (Simon Fraser, Stanford, and Oregon). In the post season, they came out in fighting fashion and surprised everyone with a 10-9 upset over the Oregon Ducks in the PNCLL Championship game.
With earning their first trip to the National Championships, the Beavers came out tough and ready to play in their first round match-up against the UCSB Gauchos, holding a 5-4 lead at halftime. Although Oregon State wouldn’t be able to hold on to the lead and eventually lost 14-7, it didn’t do anything to diminish the high spirits of a team that had made Oregon State program history in making the National Championships for the first time in program history.
Big thanks to Robert White, who followed the Beavers travels all year long, capturing the best action shots along the way!
