The Stanford women's soccer team finally got some luck on its side. As a result, the fifth-ranked Cardinal (15-2-5) advances to the third round of the NCAA tournament. Stanford, which advanced on penalty kicks over California (15-5-1), hosts Connecticut on Friday at 7 p.m. The Huskies beat Wake Forest, 1-0, to advance. Stanford beat UConn, 1-0, in its second game of the regular season. "At this stage, every game is tough," Stanford coach Paul Ratcliffe said. "It doesn't matter who we play; we just have to get after them." Kristin Stannard scored on an assist from Ali Riley in the first half to give the Cardinal the early edge. Cal scored the tying goal with 1:50 remaining in regulation. Allison Falk, who sustained a bloody lip during the game, converted the game-winning penalty kick after Alex Gamble knocked one away.
