The stage is set: No. 1 seed Stanford vs. No. 1 seed South Carolina; No. 1 seed Duke vs. No. 2 seed UCLA. Those are this year's NCAA Women's Soccer College Cup matchups after four of the top-seeded teams survived four rounds of tournament games. They outscored their opponents by a combined margin of 13-1 in the quarterfinal round, so there were more than a few candidates for our weekly "Best goals of the week" roundup.
