Freshman forward Jordan Morris earned a pair of accolades Tuesday for his standout performance Friday night at UC Santa Barbara, being named Pac-12 Player of the Week and earning a spot on Top Drawer Soccer's Team of the Week.
Morris becomes Stanford's second Pac-12 Player of the Week this season, and second in a row after keeper Drew Hutchins claimed the honor last Tuesday.
Morris scored the first two goals of his collegiate career Friday, accounting for Stanford's production in its 2-1 overtime win in Santa Barbara.
Morris opened the scoring just past the half-hour mark, then, after the Gauchos had equalized in the second half and sent the match into extra time, the Mercer Island, Wash. native redirected a Ty Thompson shot past Gaucho goalkeeper Josh McNeely for the 95th-minute winner.
The win improved the Cardinal's record on the year to 5-1-1 and extended the team's winning streak to five. It is the longest winning streak for the program since winning six in a row in September 2009.
The goals move Morris into second on the team with seven points, as the freshman leads the Cardinal with three assists.
Stanford will have the chance to match its longest winning streak in five years when it opens Pac-12 play this weekend at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium. The Cardinal starts the weekend Thursday at 7 p.m. against No. 3 Washington and finishes it up Sunday at 3 p.m. against Oregon State. Both matches will be broadcast on the Pac-12 Network.
Cardinal freshman Maddie Bauer earned a spot on Top Drawer Soccer's Team of the Week after standing out defensively in a 2-0 win over host Colorado to open the Pac-12 season. She also assisted on the game-winning goal.
Meanwhile, Cardinal freshman keeper Jane Campbell was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week for her performance in the Cardinal's win at Colorado.
She earned her second shutout and improved to 6-0-0 since taking over for senior All-America Emily Oliver, who retired for medical reasons. Campbell has contributed to four shutout victories in her six starts, and her goals-against average has dropped to 0.48.
Campbell made two saves and successfully defended six Colorado corner kicks against the Buffaloes, who entered the match at 8-1, the best nonconference record in school history.
This week, Campbell and her teammates play their Pac-12 home-opening matches, first playing host to Arizona on Friday (4 p.m.), and then Arizona State on Sunday (5:30 p.m.).
