BERKELEY, Calif. -- No. 9 Stanford remained unbeaten Saturday, collecting a 5-2 victory against No. 16 California.

In a match that was postponed due to the threat of rain last weekend, Stanford (8-0) claimed the doubles point and held on for a pair of three-set victories.

One of those came from Carol Zhao, who clinched the match at the No. 3 spot with a 6-3, 6-7 (6), 6-4 triumph against Denise Starr.

Stanford, which has now defeated three top-25 opponents on the road, took a 1-0 lead thanks to an 8-4 victory from its No. 2 duo of Taylor Davidson and Ellen Tsay.

California (6-4) knotted the match at 1-1 following a 6-3, 6-2 victory from Zsofi Susanyi on court No. 2.

Kristie Ahn followed with a 6-3, 6-3 victory against Anett Schutting at the top spot of the lineup to put Stanford back in front 2-1.

Tsay added a 6-4, 6-3 win against Klara Fabikova at the No. 5 spot, bringing the Cardinal closer to clinching.

Lynn Chi’s 7-5, 6-3 victory against Davidson on court No. 4 allowed the Golden Bears to trim the deficit to 3-2.

Zhao then provided the deciding point when she outlasted Starr in three sets.

Caroline Doyle added a 6-2, 0-6, 7-6 (8) victory to round out the match.
