Women's Soccer vs Rutgers 9/16/2007

Stanford 4 Rutgers 1
Coming into the Stanford Invitational, Rutgers was ranked #12. They dropped their opening game to #4 Santa Clara 2-1 in overtime. I expected a good match but it wasn't even close as we looked much better than the previous night. Our offense was fluid and we converted most of our chances. Barring the last 10 minutes of the game when we were already ahead 4-0, we cut down on sloppy passes in the midfield and defense.

Rutgers looked average. I'm not really sure whether it was our great defense but for the most part, they showed very little imagination offensively. Their keeper was also pretty much helpless against most of our goals.

We ended up winning the Invitational based on goal difference although I'm sure everyone would have loved to see a #1 Stanford vs #4 Santa Clara match up.

Oh yeah, my friend came to her 3rd Stanford sporting event!
