[PAC-10 MEN] Freshman Alec Sundly scored two goals, including the gamewinner, to lead California to a 3-2 win over Stanford on Thursday that clinched the Pac-10 title and an automatic berth into the NCAA Men's Tournament.

The Bears improved their record to 8-1-1 in the Pac-10 (and 12-2-3 overall), rebounding from a last-place conference finish in an injury-riddled 2009 season to claim Pac-10 supremacy in 2010.

“I tried to do it for the seniors,” Sundly said of the Senior Day win. “As I was getting mentally prepared for this game I was thinking, ‘Man, this might be their last game,’ and I just put it all out on the field.”

Cal’s largest home crowd of the season -- 2,415 -- was on hand for the game.

Stanford, which finished its season with am  8-10-0 record (4-6-0 in the Pac-10), played a man down after goalkeeper Jason Dodson picked up a red card for fouling senior forward Davis Paul outside the Cardinal box.

Paul, who assisted on all three Cal goals, was one of seven Cal seniors honored before the game. He set up fellow senior Servando Carrasco for the third Golden Bear goal.
