Marist vs. Cal Box Score
Here is evidence that the Gaels should not let themselves be intimidated by the Cal Golden Bears.
Back in March, Iona's fellow MAAC team Marist went toe-to-toe with the number one team in the nation, losing a close 1-0 game. The Red Foxes' Melanie White limited the Golden Bears to five hits. Marist had six themselves, and actually had many scoring chances in the game against both of Cal's great pitchers.
Can Iona beat number one? It would take every player stepping up her game. At any rate, they should NOT feel in awe just to be on the same field.
