Women's Soccer vs Cal 10/14/2007

Stanford 4 Cal 2

Originally scheduled for Friday, this game was postponed because of rain. It worked out well for us because its Friday start time clashed with the volleyball game and we would have chosen volleyball insetad. We all know how volleyball turned out...

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and there were a number of Cal fans (I would guess mostly family). They must be feeling terrible after their football team gave away the game against Oregon State last night, losing the chance to be the number one ranked team in the nation. Too bad for them.

The game started with a bang when Ali Riley scored her first goal of the season just over a minute into the game. Kira Maker (our goalie) made a pivotal point blank save to preserve our 1-0 lead before we reeled off 3 straight goals. Our third goal was a spectacular swerving drive by Lizzy George which brought her cheering section to their feet. The fourth was through what I thought was a questionably-awarded penalty kick. If only we had this ref against Santa Clara.

Cal scored 2 late goals but the result was never really in doubt. I'm definitley looking forward to the games next week against UCLA (#1 this week) and USC.
