After a successful regular season, No. 1 Stanford women’s soccer (17-0-2, 10-0-1 Pac-12) begins postseason play tonight against Seattle (10-7-3, 6-1-1 WAC).
Basketball season is finally here. If you believe the numbers, last year marked a successful but otherwise unremarkable season for Stanford men’s basketball, where the team garnered eleven conference wins compared to their six in the year before. This was Stanford’s best Pac-12 record since 2008.
In a Thursday night matchup, the No. 6 Stanford men’s soccer (10-2-4, Pac-12 6-1-1) defeated the no. 87 San Diego Aztecs (6-9-1, 1-7-0) 2-0 after two decisive goals in the second half.
The Stanford Cardinal football team (5-3, 3-2 Pac-12) has fallen out of the AP College Football Top 25 once again, after yet another heart-wrenching loss to Washington State. The good news? The Cougars look like the best team in the Pac-12 and might be heading to the Rose Bowl. The team suffered a ‘quality loss.’ The bad news? Any loss is still a loss. The Cardinal are now effectively eliminated from winning the Pac-12, and to make matters worse, they take on the Washington Huskies on the road this weekend. The Huskies aren’t looking too hot either though, getting upset by Cal just last weekend. What was once billed in the preseason as a marquee matchup is now just a Saturday evening game between two unranked teams. The Stanford Daily’s Andrew Tan, Shan Reddy, and Gregory Block take a look at Stanford’s offensive identity, the defensive game plan against Jake Browning, and the outlook for the rest of the Cardinal’s season.
The No. 1 ranked Stanford women’s soccer team (15-0-2, Pac-12 8-0-1) traveled to Washington State (11-5-1, 4-5-1) yesterday to face the Cougars in a match that ended in a 1-1 double overtime draw. The Cardinal’s unbeaten streak marches on, now standing at 39 games since their last defeat. This tie, however, marks the end of their 26 game Pac-12 win streak, which dates back to October of 2016.
This Sunday packs a pair of home games for Cardinal soccer, when the No. 1 ranked women’s team (13-0-1, 6-0-0) will host the Colorado Buffaloes (12-0-3, 4-0-2) at 12pm, and later at 3pm the No. 12 ranked men’s team (7-2-3, 4-1-0) will seek to fend off the Washington Huskies (8-6-0, 3-3-0) in a rematch of the previous Sunday’s contest.
The Stanford Men’s Water Polo Team fought well at the Mountain Pacific Invitational Meet held in Avery Aquatic Center this past weekend.
The No.1 seeded Cardinal (13-1) geared up for their first match of the weekend against the San Jose State Spartans (15-7). Sophomores Ben Hallock and Tyler Abramson had an impressive showing putting up 4 and 2 goals respectively. By the end of the game nearly every one of the Cardinal in the water scored at least one goal. With a final score of 19-8, it was smooth sailing to a victory for Stanford in the opening game.
