AT A GLANCE

  • DEFENSE! DEFENSE!: The Golden Bears' backline was tremendous last time out, holding Stanford to five shots through regulation and two overtimes en route to Cal's 1-0 win down on the Farm last Friday. Cal's defense did such a phenomenal job keeping Stanford's offense in check that senior keeper Cato Knipping had just one save on the day.
  • Shooters Shoot: In the win over the Cardinal, the Bears went 4-for-4 in the shootout, not even needing the fifth shot to secure the win. Kiki de Bruijne, Sophie Everett, Claire Hind, and Sydney Decher were all successful in their attempts. Knipping was up to the task, stopping the second and fourth attempts by the Cardinal to seal the win.
  • More on the Shootout: The last time Cal had a shootout came against Northern California rival UC Davis on Oct. 30, 2019 – with the Aggies coming out on top. In that contest, current assistant coach Katrina Carter had a successful try.  
  • Best in the West: With the win over Stanford, the Bears achieved one of their goals for the year, sweeping California rivals UC Davis and Stanford. Cal went 2-0 against the NorCal foes this year.  
  • Checking the Standings: With two weekends left in the regular season the Bears' path to the America East Conference Tournament is beginning to clear up. Cal, at 3-3 in the AE, currently sits in sixth in the AE standings. The top six, which all advance to the AE Conference Tournament, Maine (5-0), Vermont (4-2), UAlbany (4-2), UMass-Lowell (4-2), Stanford (3-3), Cal (3-3).
