The 19th-ranked Cardinal field hockey team showcased an all-around team effort Tuesday, earning a 1-0 win over host Cornell in a nonconference game. Stanford captain Sarah Helgeson scored the lone goal.
The first half saw the Cardinal (2-4) throw down a brutal offensive assault with a season-high 11 shots in a half, including Helgeson's goal that she put away on a cross that bounced off the post.
The Cardinal returns to action next week as it travels east again to take on UMass and Yale. Stanford will take on the Minutewomen on Friday, September 23 at 1 p.m. (PT) before facing the Yale Bulldogs Sunday at 9 a.m.
Ryan Onizuka scored in the 17th minute and the Menlo College men's soccer team made it stand in a 1-0 victory over host Oregon Tech in a nonconference contest Tuesday.
Goalie Alex Coates-McDowall recorded the seventh shutout of his one-plus year career at Menlo, moving him into first place all-time in that category.
David Beary sent a ball past the defense to get Onizuka behind the defense and had a right side shot over the Owls keeper.
Oregon Tech outshot Menlo for the game, 12-7, including a 5-3 advantage in shots on goal.
Menlo (6-2) continues its road trip next week, opening Golden State Athletic Conference play with a Thursday meeting at San Diego Christian.
