No. 6 Stanford 6, Pacific 1
STANFORD, Calif. -- Stanford received goals from six different players in a 6-1 rout of Pacific on Friday night at the Varsity Turf.
The Cardinal (8-2, 2-0 NorPac) continued its dominance of the Tigers (3-8, 1-2 NorPac), extending its winning streak to 14 overall in the series.
Tied at 1-1, Stanford scored twice in the final 10 minutes of the first half before adding three more goals in the second stanza to finish the night with a season-high six goals.
Kelsey Harbin got the Cardinal on the board early when she drilled a shot off a penalty corner, set up by Shannon Herold and Hope Burke. Harbin leads Stanford with five goals and 13 points on the year.
Clemence Couteau scored her team-best third game-winning goal of the year in the 25th minute, placing a shot between the Pacific goalkeeper’s legs off a feed from Maddie Secco.
Goalkeeper Dulcie Davies saw most of her action in the first half, making three of her four saves. The lone goal allowed was the first given up at the Varsity Turf since Sept. 6 when No. 20 New Hampshire scored in the second minute -- a span of 224:03.
The Cardinal carried its momentum into the second half, dominating a majority of the possession. Elise Ogle scored just 41 seconds into the second half, becoming the 11th Stanford player to record a goal.
Casey Deeds became the 12th Cardinal player to record a goal when she scored her first career goal in the 67th minute, knocking in a rebound off a shot by Kasey Quon.
No. 9 Boston College 3, No. 20 New Hampshire 1
DURHAM, N.H. -- Ninth-ranked Boston College earned its third win against a ranked team, defeating No. 20 New Hampshire 3-1 at Memorial Field on Friday afternoon. The Eagles (9-2) outshot the Wildcats (5-5) 15-7, dominating in the second half 10-2.
"The girls really preserved through a very tough second half," head coach Ainslee Lamb said. "New Hampshire played extremely well. I was impressed by their play. We have to learn how to continue to play at a consistent high level for the entire game and UNH challenged us with that today. We want to refocus our tactics and combine that disciplined play with the energy that we have brought to every game this far."
The Eagles didn't waste any time getting on the board, notching a goal in the fourth minute of action. Sophomore AshLeigh Sebia tallied her third score of the season at the 3:32 mark on a pass from classmate Kelcie Hromisin.
Junior Emma Plasteras increased BC's lead to two at the seven-minute mark on an unassisted score. The midfielder leads the team with eight goals on the year.
BC held the 2-0 lead for much of the game until UNH was awarded a penalty stroke in the 58th minute. Megan Bozek cut the lead to one by converting the attempt, but it didn't last long as freshman Eryn McCoy scored her seventh of the season three minutes later on a penalty corner. Plasteras, who inserted the ball, tallied her team-leading 10th assist.
Sophomore goalie Leah Settipane tallied five saves on the afternoon. Classmate Jordyn Hamilton made a stop for her first career defensive save. The Eagles earned four corners while the Wildcats registered six in the game. UNH goalie Carlie Tarbell recorded two saves.
