Homestand coming to an end this weekend for men's soccer


No. 5 Stanford (4-1) concludes its six-match homestand with games against USF (1-5) and Yale (2-2) on Friday and Sunday. Friday's contest against the Dons starts at 7 p.m. and will be broadcast via a live stream. Sunday's date with the Bulldogs will air on Pac-12 Network and Pac-12 Bay Area at 1 p.m. with Troy Clardy and Christopher Sullivan on the call.

Stanford is 14-20-6 all-time against the Dons and 7-1-1 in the last nine.

Tomas Hilliard-Arce
Last season, USF beat the No. 23 Cardinal for the first time since 2007, 2-1, in front of the Dons' first sellout since 2011.

In USF's last visit to The Farm the season prior, the Cardinal won 3-1 behind a brace from Tomas Hilliard-Arce. The Matthews, N.C. native came up his defensive position to twice score goals via the header in the first half, sending the then-No. 4 Cardinal to what was its sixth straight victory.

Jordan Morris also added a set-piece goal of his own, scoring a header off a corner from Corey Baird in the 59th minute.

The Cardinal has never beaten Yale in two previous meetings. The Bulldogs won 2-1 at the adidas/Brown Classic on Sept. 12, 2003 and 4-1 in New Haven, Conn. on Sept. 17, 1980.

Matt Janusz gave the No. 19 Cardinal an early 1-0 lead and on Sean Whalen's cross at 14:22 in the 2003 match, but Alex Munns put one in for Yale five minutes later and Andrew Dealy converted a penalty with less than four minutes remaining to drop Stanford to 1-3 at the time, which was its worst start since 1994.

The Cardinal is tied for fifth nationally in assists per game (5.00), tied for ninth in points per game (7.40), 18th in scoring offense (2.20), 14th in shutout percentage (0.60) and 25th in goals against average (0.60).
