Cardinal's Press too much for Bruins

[STANFORD-UCLA WOMEN] Christen Press, the national leading scorer, struck twice with her 24th and 25th goals of the season to lead No. 1 Stanford to a 3-0 win over UCLA that ended the Bruins' bid for an eighth straight trip to the Women's College Cup.

Just like last year when the teams met at Stanford during the regular season, the Cardinal went ahead on an own goal.

It came in the fifth minute when a ball played in by Mariah Nogueira glanced off the head of UCLA defender Elise Britt, off the post and into the goal.

Press put the game away with a pair of goals, the first set up by Camille Levin and the second off a pass from Teresa Noyola,  placing her within one of Kelley O’Hara’s school single-season record set in 2009.

“Christen has emerged as a fantastic leader," said Stanford coach Paul Ratcliffe. "Everyone talks about what a talented player  she is, but for me, her leadership skills have been tremendous this year. She really cares  about everyone on the team, she works so hard in training, and she's an example for all  the younger players. She has really emerged as a great leader and that's been a big part of our success.”

The loss ended UCLA's season at 13-8-1.

'It’s been a  tough and challenging year," said UCLA coach Jillian Ellis, "but I’m proud of the way the team battled, especially in the  second half today. I think we left it all on the field.”
