MOST COMMENTED

[STANFORD-NOTRE DAME] Midfielder Mariah Nogueira showed how important she is to Stanford, scoring the winning goal in her first game back from a shoulder injury to give the No. 2 Cardinal a 2-1 win over No. 7 Notre Dame in a rematch of last year's Women's College Cup final. The game was suspended late in the first half  for 49 minutes because of a rare -- rare for Northern California -- lightning storm at soldout Cagan Stadium.

Nogueira's header off Lindsay Taylor's corner kick capped a two-goal comeback in the final 10 minutes to lead Stanford past the Irish.

After Melissa Henderson gave Notre Dame the lead in the 67th minute, Taylor tied it up for Stanford with a 25-yard blast inside the right post.

The Cardinal win was revenge for the 1-0 loss to Notre Dame in last year's Division I final in Cary, N.C.

Nogueira had missed three matches because of her shoulder injury. Defender Rachel Quon also returned to the starting lineup after being out three games because of a leg injury.

Courtney Verloo (knee injury) has not played this season and is out indefinitely.
