Saint Louis scores two second half goals, shuts out No. 5 Stanford

St. Louis is 2-0-1 over its last three games, including Saturday's upset over the defending champions.

Saint Louis’ Spencer Jones and Leo Novaes tallied second half goals to propel the Billikens to a 2-0 victory over fifth-ranked Stanford Saturday afternoon at Hermann Stadium.

The Billikens, who are unbeaten in their last three games, improve to 2-3-1 on the year. Stanford, the two-time defending NCAA champion, dips to 6-2.

It was the first career goal for both Novaes and Jones. Novaes scored the game-winner in the 57th minute off an assist by Jacob Krupp. Jones’ insurance marker came roughly four minutes later off an assist from Eric Davies.

The win came in front of a season-high 3,326 fans for homecoming.
