SEATTLE – Goals from senior Abby Greubel and fifth-year Madison Haley provided the offense, while senior goalkeeper Katie Meyer made a season-best six saves, to hand No. 14 Stanford (10-3-0, 4-1-0 Pac-12) a 2-1 victory over Washington (3-6-3, 1-2-2 Pac-12) on a rain-soaked Sunday from Husky Soccer Stadium.
Stanford put pressure on Washington throughout the match, totaling 19 shots – including 11 in the first half.
Greubel, who returned to the pitch on Thursday at Washington State for the first time since September 9, put the Cardinal on the board in the 42nd minute as she dribbled to her left toward the top of the box and slotted a shot into the bottom right corner of the cage.
The goal was Greubel's fifth of the season to rank second on the team in that category.
The Huskies managed to equalize in the 57th minute when Ruby Hellstrom stretched out and poked a shot past Meyer who was closing in on the play.
Washington put seven of their 14 total shots on frame in the setback.
The two teams remained knotted at a goal apiece until the 83rd minute when Kennedy Wesley sent a ball into the box that was deflected to the foot of Haley. The native of Dallas, Texas settled the ball and fired a laser into the bottom left corner of the goal for the eventual game-winner.
Washington goalkeeper Olivia Sekany turned away a few good chances for the Cardinal, tallying four saves while allowing the two goals, as Stanford put six of the 19 shots on frame.
Stanford, which has won three straight matches, will travel to Colorado next week for an 11 a.m. PT match against the Buffaloes on Sunday.
