STANFORD - California men's soccer head coach Kevin Grimes earned his 100th career coaching victory at Cal on Saturday when the Golden Bears topped Stanford, 1-0, at Stanford. Sophomore Servando Carrasco kicked in a rebound off a shot by sophomore Hector Jimenez in overtime to give the Bears the victory. Cal improved to 7-2-4, 2-1-2 with the victory.

Carrasco, Jimenez and sophomore Davis Paul provided all the scoring chances in the match as Carrasco and Jimenez tallied three shots on goal, while Paul recorded four.
