This Week In Pac-12 Women's Soccer
With three weekends left in the regular season, league play is just past its halfway point as five conference match-ups remain on each team's schedule. STANFORD (14-0-1, 6-0-0) holds a two-game lead over WASHINGTON STATE (10-4-2, 4-1-1) at the top of the conference standings.
The Cardinal is in its sixth week at No. 1 in the NSCAA poll after defeating ARIZONA STATE (6-8-0, 2-4-0) in the nationally televised NSCAA Game of the Week on Friday. UCLA (10-1-3, 3-1-2) dropped down a spot in the poll to No. 7 as a result of Friday's 0-0 draw with current No. 21 WSU. OREGON STATE (10-4-1, 4-2-0) rounds out the Pac-12's presence in the NSCAA poll at No. 23.
UTAH forward Erin Dalley is the Bank of the West Pac-12 Women's Soccer Player of the Week for the second time in three weeks. On Friday, the senior buried the game-winning header in overtime against then-No. 18 Oregon State to give Utah its first win over a top-25 opponent since 2009. It was Dalley's only shot of the game, but it led to the Utes' sixth straight home win and fifth shutout of the season.
