“Stanford is a very, very good team,” said Head Coach Dan Tobias. “They are an excellent team and they played really well today. They kept the ball and they were very good in all facets of the game. It is disappointing for us because I felt like we got out played. Stanford was definitely deserving but we got outworked and out hustled which is very uncharacteristic for our program.”
In the first half, Stanford’s Marisa Abegg got the first goal at the 20:20 mark. The goal came off a rebound that Allison Falk passed to Abegg who then headed it in. The Wildcats were not able to muster any offense in the first half notching zero shots.
In the second half, Stanford increased it lead on Ali Riley’s goal at the 52:49 mark. Kelley O’Hara assisted on the goal. O’Hara then got the final goal for the Cardinal at the 65:24 mark off a corner kick.
Chelsea McInytre was in goal for the Wildcats; she recorded fourteen saves, beating her previous best of 11 (
“I do believe that we will bounce back because I looked at the girls’ faces and that (getting outplayed) is what seemed to bother them the most,” explained Tobias. “We have a nice home stand this weekend and we are going to put ourselves in a good situation.”
