Oregon State women's soccer notches first-ever road win at No. 7 Stanford

5 NCAA women’s soccer players to watch from the preseason top 25

STANFORD, Calif.  – The Oregon State women's soccer team toppled No. 7 Stanford, 2-1, on Thursday, for its first road win against the Cardinal in program history. With the victory, the Beavers have now defeated Stanford two of the last three meetings dating back to Feb. 28, 2021, after the two teams split last season with a win each. Oregon State is now 9-1 on the season and 1-1 in Pac-12 play.
 
"We were pinned in and defending, but I never sensed any doubt from the group," said head coach Lauren Sinacola. "The team was focused on the job at hand and did what we needed to do to come out with a win. We had a lot of players step up tonight and to say I'm proud is an understatement. We will enjoy this win, learn from it, and refocus for our Sunday matchup against Cal."
