Stanford women head to Corvallis; men are at home for a pair


The third-ranked Stanford women's soccer team concludes a three-game road stretch Friday against Oregon State at 7 p.m.

The Cardinal (11-1-1, 4-1 Pac-12) split a pair of contests last weekend in Los Angeles in its first road matches in over a month. Stanford dropped a 3-0 decision at No. 7 USC and earned a 3-2 double-overtime victory at No. 10 UCLA.

Maddie Bauer scored her first collegiate goal in the 103rd minute against to Bruins to secure the victory. Andi Sullivan and Michelle Xiao also contributed goals, while Megan Turner and Kyra Carusa notched an assist apiece.

Sullivan, a MAC Hermann Trophy candidate, matched her single-season career-high in goals with her fifth of the year at UCLA. She now has a career-best 14 points on the season.

Carusa has contributed at least one point in 8-of-13 games this season.

The Cardinal has scored two or more goals in 11-of-13 games this season, while limiting opponents to one goal or fewer in all but two matches. Stanford has not trailed in 11-of-13 games.

Sullivan and goalkeeper Jane Campbell will join the U.S. Women's National Team for a training camp and two games against Switzerland following Friday's game against Oregon State.

Men's soccer

Undefeated in its first three games to open conference play, No. 16 Stanford (6-2-3, 3-0-0 Pac-12) returns to The Farm to host No. 25 San Diego State (6-2-3, 1-1-1 Pac-12) at 7 p.m. on Thursday and No. 17 UCLA (6-3-1, 2-1-0 Pac-12) at 5 p.m. on Sunday.

Stanford is 14-11-7 all-time against the Aztecs in a series dating to 1976, 7-0-2 in the past nine and unbeaten under Jeremy Gunn. The Cardinal hasn't dropped a result to SDSU since a 1-0 loss in San Diego on Sept. 30, 2011.

Stanford went on the road and came home with a pair of 1-0 wins over No. 16 Washington and Oregon State.

In Seattle, Bryce Marion was taken down near the right sideline, Sam Werner played his free kick into the box and Amir Bashti bagged his first goal of the season in the 78th minute to lift the Cardinal to its first road win over the Huskies since 2006.

On Sunday in Corvallis, Tomas Hilliard-Arce headed home Werner's corner in the 105th minute and Stanford upped its record against the Beavers under Jeremy Gunn to 8-0-1.
