Yet another one

“"STANFORD, Calif. -- First-half goals by Ryan Walker-Hartshorn and Chioma Ubogagu lifted No. 4 Stanford to a 2-0 victory against UC Santa Barbara on Thursday night, extending the Cardinal’s unbeaten streak in home openers to 26.

Stanford (4-0) also earned its fourth consecutive shutout, its longest such streak to open the season since 1989. UCSB is 2-2-1.

“The team is making progress. Each game, they get a little bit better.” Stanford coach Paul Ratcliffe said.

  Walker-Hartshorn and Ubogagu
Ubogagu played a role in both Stanford scores as her shot on goal in the 16th minute was left-footed by Walker-Hartshorn, past USCB goalkeeper Beth Ritter. It was just enough to score her first goal of the season.

Moments later, Andi Sullivan supplied a through ball to Ubogagu who then turned toward the goal, shooting past the UCSB defense and setting herself up for a left-footed cross-goal shot in the 19th minute. It was Ubogagu’s third goal of the season.

“Chi is on fire for her senior year,” said Ratcliffe. “She’s a force to be reckoned with. Now, we’ve got to keep her hot.”

Goalies Jane Campbell and Sarah Cox each played a half to combine on the shutout. Stanford hasn’t allowed a goal for 379 minutes, 35 seconds, dating back to last season.

The Cardinal play host to rival No. 25 Notre Dame on Sunday at 4 p.m. ET.
