Soccer Edged by No. 10 Stanford, 2-1
Oct. 17, 2004
Stanford, Calif. - Stanford won its first Pac-10 game this afternoon as the Cardinal upended Arizona State, 2-1, at Maloney Field. Senior Emilee Shim scored the game-winning goal in the 80th minute off an assist from junior Leah Tapscott to help the Cardinal improve to 9-3-2 on the season, with a 1-1-1 mark in conference play. The first Pac-10 loss dropped Arizona State to 6-7-1 overall and 2-1-1 in the Pac-10.
Stanford opened the game with a goal by senior Martha West in the 11th minute. West, who drew a foul, fired a free kick into a line of defenders, but took the ball back and dribbled into an opening before lobbing a shot over the keeper.
Both teams continued to generate opportunities, but with 10:13 left in regulation, Tapscott fired the ball into the box and Shim fired it into the cage for the go-ahead goal.
Up next, the Devils return home to host in-state rival Arizona on Friday, October 22 at 7:00 p.m.
