It was another week and another dominant road trip for the No. 6 Stanford men’s soccer (12-2-1, 6-0-1 Pac-12) as it cruised to victories over No. 21 Washington (10-5-1, 3-3-1) on Thursday and Oregon State (5-10, 2-5) on Sunday. The Cardinal finished their 2017 conference road schedule with an unblemished 5-0 record for the first time in school history.
Coming off of a dominant 1-0 victory over Oregon State on Sunday, the No. 8 Stanford men’s soccer team (10-2-1, 4-0-1 Pac-12) heads to Seattle on Thursday for a showdown with the No. 21 Washington Huskies (9-4-1, 2-2-1).
Hilliard-Arce’s 65th minute goal elevated No. 8 Stanford men’s soccer (10-2-1, 4-0-1 Pac-12) over Oregon State (4-9-0, 1-4-0) in a 1-0 victory on Sunday afternoon. The Cardinal dominated the Beavers in shot attempts (23 to 8) and in shots on goal (9 to 2), but Stanford had trouble converting outside of the one goal.
Despite a statistical domination of rival No. 19 Washington (9-3-1, 2-1-1 Pac-12) for the majority of a cold, hazy Thursday night at Cagan Stadium, a sluggish start by Stanford’s strikers yielded an early Huskies goal, and No. 8 Stanford (9-2-1, 3-0-1) had to settle for a 1-1 draw against its toughest competition for the Pac-12 crown.
The Stanford men’s soccer team continues to shine. It remains undefeated in its last seven road PAC-12 matches dating back to last season, keeping the streak alive with a 1-0 win against UCLA on Sunday at Drake Stadium in Los Angeles. No. 11 Cardinal (8-2-0, Pac-12 2-0-0) have won their last seven matches against the Bruins (3-5-0, 0-2-0) over several seasons.
No. 11 Stanford men’s soccer (6-2-0) is off to a strong start this season. It began with three rapid wins over Creighton, Northeastern and SMU in the first week of September.
The back-to-back national champion Stanford men’s soccer look to start their season with a win at San Jose State as they take on the Spartans Friday Aug. 25.
No. 5 Stanford men’s soccer (12-3-4) opened its NCAA Tournament with a hard-fought 2-0 victory over Pacific (13-4-2) on Sunday evening at a rainy Cagan stadium. The win means that Stanford will advance to the third round of the NCAA Tournament after having a bye week for the first round.
