Macario earns second Pac-12 Player of the Week honor


Stanford junior Catarina Macario earned her second consecutive Pac-12 Conference Women's Soccer Offensive Player of the Week award after scoring three goals and recording a pair of assists in two victories for the second-ranked Cardinal last week.

She scored twice in a 5-0 victory over No. 14 Washington State, her sixth multi-goal match of the season. Macario also scored in Stanford's 4-0 win over Washington, which left the Cardinal as the only team within an unbeaten conference record.

Macario leads the nation with 39 points and has 15 goals, tied for the national lead with Louisiana Tech sophomore Autumn Woodward, who repeated as Conference USA's Offensive Player of the Week.

Stanford (10-1, 3-0) travels to Corvallis for a match with Oregon State (9-1-1, 1-1-1) at 7 p.m. Thursday. The Cardinal owns a 26-1 record against the Beavers, including the past 15 in succession.

Stanford has not allowed a goal in the past 123:34 minutes against the Beavers and has shut them out in four of the previous five contests and 14 times overall. Oregon State has never scored more than two goals (once) in match against Stanford.

The Cardinal leads the NCAA in goals per game (3.90), total goals (43), points per game (11.82), total points (130), shots per game (23.45) and shots on goal per game (11.27).
