In their last meeting, No. 18 Stanford women’s field hockey upset No. 8 Wake Forest 4-2 on Wake Forest’s home turf. It was the 2010-11 season; a season that took the Cardinal all the way to a first-round match in the NCAA tournament against No. 2 North Carolina.
This season, though, the rankings sit far closer and No. 13 Stanford will come into the game as more of an equal against No. 14 Wake Forest than it did three years ago.
