[STANFORD-BOSTON COLLEGE 3-1] The 1-2 punch of senior Kelley O'Hara and junior Christen Press combined for all three goals as No. 1 Stanford beat Boston College, 3-1, Friday night before a sellout crowd of 2,200 at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium and earned a berth in the NCAA College Cup.

O'Hara added to her school record with her 24th and 25th goals of the season, and Press assisted on both of O'Hara's goals - tying Marcie Ward's 2000 assist record of 14 and then breaking it.

Boston College, the No. 2 regional seed, surprised the Cardinal by scoring only 1:42 into the match when Julia Bouchelle collected a pass from Victoria DiMartino in the box and sent a shot past a diving Kira Maker and off the right post before deflecting in.

Less than a minute later, Stanford answered back when a shot by Press bounced off the crossbar to O'Hara, who buried the rebound.

O'Hara put Stanford ahead in the 26th minute. A flick forward by Lindsay Taylor, and a touch pass by Press released a sprinting O'Hara on a breakaway.

Press finished off the scoring with her 20th goal of the season in the 85th minute.
