Los Angeles, Calif. - Sophomore Julia Garyfallou scored four goals for the 49ers against Loyola Marymount, but the No. 7 Lions prevailed in a 13-8 victory over Long Beach State in the regular season finale for the 49ers.
Melissa Matheson opened the scoring with a goal in the second minute, but the Lions scored three goals to take a 3-1 lead. Garyfallou's first goal cut the lead back to one, and the 49ers held even through the second period to trail 6-5 going into the second half.
