Stanford leaves it until later
by Paul Kennedy, November 13th, 2009 8:15AM



WOMEN'S NEWS ... During its 20-0-0 start, the only problem No. 1 Stanford has had is scoring early. Once again, the Cardinal needed a second-half burst to defeat upstart Northern Arizona, 2-0, in the first round of the NCAA Division I Women's Tournament. Christen Press scored two second-half goals, both on assists from Kelley O'Hara, to end the suspense.

The Lumberjacks tested Stanford early, but the Cardinal finished with a 37-3 edge in shots. Stanford moves on to the second round Saturday against BYU, a 2-0 winner over UC Santa Barbara.

NCAA Division I Women's Scoreboard

* VERY CLOSE. Soccer America's preseason women's predictions turned out to be very close to the final rankings, at least in terms of the top eight teams. Soccer America was right on with Notre Dame at No. 5, only one spot off for Stanford (1 vs. 2), UCLA (4 vs. 3), Florida State (6 vs. 7) and Boston College (7 vs. 8) and two spots off for North Carolina (3 vs. 1) and Portland (2 vs. 4). Penn State finished at No. 9 instead of No. 6. South Carolina, unranked in the preseason, sneaked in at No. 8.

Santa Clara sixth-year senior Jordan Angeli was named the Defensive Player of the Year, while Portland's Kendall Johnson and Santa Clara's Allie Vernon shared the Freshman of the Year award. Pilots coach Garrett Smith earned the top coaching accolade. Besides Enyeart, three other UP players were named to the All-WCC first team: goalie Kelsey Davis, Danielle Foxhoven and Sophie Schmidt.
