Press shatters Cardinal scoring record

[STANFORD-PORTLAND] Christen Press set the Stanford career scoring record with what proved to be a game-winner as the No. 2 Cardinal earned a 2-1 victory over then-No. 3 Portland on Saturday night at soldout Laird Q. Cagan Stadium.

Mariah Nogueira opened the scoring for Stanford in the 21st minute on a shot from 25 yards, and Press made it 2-0 15 minutes later, chipping a left-footed shot inside the far post.

With her 153rd point, Press broke the mark of 152 established by Sarah Rafanelli (1990-93).

"I've been saying all along, Christen Press is an incredible player," Stanford coach Paul Ratcliffe said. "The goal she scored was fantastic. The whole season and her whole career, she's been amazing. She deserves it and I'm really proud of her."

Press has 13 goals for the season, putting her within one of another Rafanelli record, this one for career goals (59).

"It's a big honor," Press said of her points mark. "But we're just playing the game to win, any way shape or form."

Stanford outshot Portland, 11-1, in the first half that was as close to flawless soccer as the Cardinal has played all season.
