Christen Press scored off a turnover early in the second half and then assisted on Allison Falk's goal as the Stanford women's soccer team downed visiting UC Santa Barbara, 2-0, on Friday night in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Stanford will play in the second round of the tournament on Sunday against Kansas at 1 p.m. Kansas defeated Denver, 2-1, in the opening match of the night.
"Christen had a great game," said Cardinal head coach Paul Ratcliffe. "Our team created several quality chances on a solid Santa Barbara team. We're happy with the 2-0 result, but now we have to move on and focus on Sunday's game.
"We will have to play to the best of our ability on Sunday," added Ratcliffe. "It's not going to be an easy match by any means, and we're going to have to play well the entire 90 minutes to get the result we want." Falk seconded her coach's thoughts: "Kansas is tough, and we'll have to leave everything on that field if we want to beat them. That's how it is when you get to the NCAAs; you have to step on the field and battle intensely."
