On Sunday, No. 3 women’s soccer (4-0, 0-0 Pac-12) will take on the University of San Francisco (4-1, 0-0 WCC) in hopes of continuing its undefeated streak.
No. 3 Stanford will look to extend a 29-game home unbeaten streak and secure Paul Ratcliffe’s 300th victory as head coach — he is two short.
No. 3 Women’s soccer (1-0, 0-0 Pac-12), the first team on Stanford’s 2019-20 athletic calendar, started the year on a high note with a 2-1 road win over No. 6 Penn State (0-1, 0-0 Big Ten) on Friday. Both Stanford goals came courtesy of the dynamic boot of junior forward Catarina Macario.
The same excitement of this summer’s Women’s World Cup is present at Cagan Stadium for No. 3 Stanford women’s soccer. The Cardinal, however, are more accustomed to sitting at the top of the polls. Before the program-record 45-game win streak was snapped in the semifinals of the 2018 College Cup to eventual champion Florida State, Stanford had held the No. 1 spot since Oct. 10, 2017.
“With the first pick, in the first round of the 2019 NWSL college draft the Chicago Red Stars select Tierna Davidson from Stanford University.”
There was no storybook ending for Stanford women’s soccer (21-1-2, 10-0-1 Pac-12) as Florida State (19-4-3, 5-4-1 ACC) chopped the Cardinal’s season one game short of competing for its second straight national title. Stanford could not overcome two first half goals from two Seminole defenders.
No. 1 seed Stanford women’s soccer (21-0-2, 10-0-1 Pac-12) punched their ticket to the College Cup in North Carolina with a 2-0 shutout of No. 2 Tennessee (16-3-3, 7-2-1 SEC) in the quarterfinals.
“Jordan always comes through clutch.”
No, not Michael. Head coach Paul Ratcliffe was referring to Pac-12 midfielder of the year, senior Jordan DiBiasi. Her header was all Stanford (20-0-2, 10-0-1 Pac-12) needed to take down the Badgers (14-4-4, 6-2-3 Big Ten) in the third round of the College Cup.
