On Tuesday, Stanford women’s soccer (18-1, 11-0 Pac-12) learned its fate for the 2019 NCAA tournament. The Cardinal did not need to wait long.
Colorado’s (4-6, 2-5 Pac-12) Evan Price called game with a 37-yard kick as time expired on Saturday night. The Buffs claimed their Homecoming victory 16-13 against Stanford (4-5, 3-4 Pac-12).
No. 2 Stanford (18-1, 11-0 Pac-12) controlled possession, dictated the run of play and poured on four goals to close out the regular season with a 4-0 win over Cal (13-4-2, 5-3-3 Pac-12) and a perfect conference record. With goal contributions from two seniors, Stanford’s class of ’20 can now claim an 8️1-5️-2️ record, including 4️5️-1️-2️ in Cagan Stadium and 4️2-1️-2️ in Pac-12 play.
On Saturday, a lot of eyes will light up when Colorado’s Laviska Shenault Jr. lines up against Stanford’s Paulson Adebo. Shenault, the Buffaloes’ top receiving option, and Adebo, the Cardinal’s All-American junior cornerback, will meet for the first time—since high school.
No. 2 Stanford (16-1, 9-0 Pac-12) dominated Arizona (10-5-1, 4-4-1 Pac-12) in a high-scoring 6-2 affair on Sunday. The Cardinal claimed its fifth consecutive Pac-12 title Thursday in a win over Arizona State, and are now competing for seeding in the NCAA tournament.
The first 13 points scored came from Stanford players, but only nine came from someone wearing a Stanford jersey. Nneka Ogwumike ’12 opened her emphatic return to Maples Pavilion with a layup and a pair of free throws.
Heads turned last Saturday for sophomore wide receiver Brycen Tremayne’s standout submission to the season highlight reel.
Preseason No. 3 Stanford looked comfortable in a preseason-opening 100-58 victory over the visiting Beijing Normal.
