Stanford 3, St. Mary's 0
Date of competition: Tuesday, August 20, 2019
A flurry of second-half goals lifted No. 5 Stanford to a 3-0 win over No. 11 Saint Mary's on Tuesday night at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium in a men's soccer exhibition.
"It was a fantastic soccer game between two wonderful teams and exactly what any program would want going into the season," said Cardinal coach Jeremy Gunn. "Obviously we were happy with the result but it was a very tough game for both sides trying to break down two outstanding defenses. It's great to get the shutout and limit their chances, and that hard work paid off when we scored three brilliant goals late on."
Ousseni Bouda and Kei Tomozawa finished with one goal and one assist apiece, Jack O'Brien netted the opening tally and Stanford's defense contributed to the shutout.
The first half ended in a goalless tie as both teams threatened to take the lead. Andrew Thomas made a fine save to deny the Gaels on the counter attack in the 29th minute before Stanford's best scoring chance of the half 10 minutes later.
