Sunday’s tournament match for Stanford men’s soccer can be summarized in just two words– ANDREW THOMAS. The redshirt senior goalkeeper denied one Saint Mary’s (18-0-2, 6-0-1 WCC) penalty kick and watched another clang off the crossbar as the No. 9 seeded Stanford (12-3-5, 7-2-1 Pac 12) advanced 4-2 on penalties over the eight seed in the third round of the NCAA tournament.

Men’s soccer loses to Cal at home for the first time since 2010

No. 6 Stanford men’s soccer (11-3-4, 7-2-1 Pac-12) lost 0-1 in their regular season-finale match against Berkeley (7-9-2, 3-7-0 Pac-12). The upset seemed all the more unlikely considering how solidly the Cardinal have performed this season, and it was a goal in the 84th minute that shattered expectations. As Cal swarmed the field after the 90 minutes were up, a gloom passed over the Stanford crowd.

Men’s soccer prepares for San Diego State

Today No. 6 Stanford men’s soccer (9-2-4, Pac-12 5-1-1) travels south to battle San Diego State (6-8-1, 1-6-0). This will be the second meeting of the season for the two teams. Stanford won the last contest in late September to the tune of 3-0. All time, the Cardinal lead the series 18-11-8, with the Aztecs’ last win coming in 2011. Since that game, Stanford has outscored SDSU 39-9.
