Lo'eau LaBonta, starting for the first time at forward, had a goal and an assist to lead No. 2 Stanford to a 4-1 victory over Arizona on Thursday, enabling the Cardinal to extend its Pac-12 women's soccer winning streak to 37.
Stanford (12-1-1 overall, 6-0 Pac-12) moved alone into third on the NCAA Division I all-time list of consecutive conference victories. Only North Carolina (1994-2000) with 55, and Florida (1997-2001) with 49, have more.
After Chioma Ubogagu opened the scoring with a 22-yard left-footed shot in the first half, Stanford got three - from LaBonta, Alex Doll, and Alina Garciamendez -- within a 20-minute span of the second half, from the 48th to 67th minutes, to break it open and take a 4-0 lead.
Arizona (5-7-3, 1-3-2) scored in the 74th minute after Candi Osei-Agyemang stole a pass deep in the Stanford end for the final margin.
Stanford resumes play with its final regular-season home matches, next week against Washington State (Thursday, 7:30 p.m.) and Washington (Sunday, 5:30 p.m.)
