Opening Day Domination

Sep 3, 2022

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - No. 4 Stanford opened its season with two dominating wins at the Bruno Classic at Harvard. The Cardinal started the day with a 27-6 victory over Wagner before a 19-6 win over the host and 16th-ranked Crimson.

The two wins are the first in the Brian Flacks era at Stanford and the 27 goals scored against the Seahawks are the most in any game for Stanford since 2015 (29-9 vs. MIT).

No. 4 Stanford 27 - Wagner 6

The Cardinal jumped ahead early in its first game of the season, scoring the first 10 goals before Wagner dented the back of the net. Eight of those first 10 goals were scored by different players, as Stanford moved the ball around and found success up and down its lineup.

Nine goals were scored by players seeing their first collegiate action, led by redshirt freshman Jack Martin with four. True freshman Chase McFarland tallied three, while CJ Indart and Grant Watson each had one.

Nolan Krutonog played all 32 minutes in the cage for the Cardinal.
