STANFORD, Calif. - Senior co-captain Allyson Marquand fired an unassisted goal from 25 yards out to propel the nationally-ranked Stanford women's soccer team to a season-opening 1-0 victory over Long Beach State in a non-conference game on Sunday at Maloney Field.

Stanford's defense allowed the 49ers only one shot in the game that resulted in a save by All-American goalkeeper Nicole Barnhart. The game marked Barnhart's 23rd career shutout.
