The Stanford men’s soccer team has proven that when push comes to shove, it can get things done. Faced with the despairing reality that a loss to UC-Santa Barbara would mean the end to their hopes for a postseason run in the NCAA tournament, the Cardinal fought until an overtime golden goal from senior Adam Jahn in the 96th minute proved the final source of salvation for a team in need of a win.
Stanford did wonders for its postseason hopes with a 1-0 overtime win over No. 25 UC-Santa Barbara on Friday night. Senior Adam Jahn headed the game-winner into the net in the 96th minute.
This Friday, the Stanford men’s soccer team will try their luck in the infamous Harder Stadium when they face off against the UC-Santa Barbara Guachos. Although the game seems to be an insignificant out-of-conference matchup, much more is at stake. If unranked Stanford can pull off a win against the Guachos, who are currently No. 25 in the NCAA rankings, they would be in a good position to make a run at the NCAA tournament.
