[STANFORD-OKLAHOMA STATE] Stanford is returning to the Women's College Cup for the fourth consecutive year thanks to its 2-1 overtime win over Oklahoma State. Senior Lindsay Taylor's golden goal from point-black range less than three minutes into overtime gave the Cardinal the win, its 50th straight at home.

Stanford outshot the Cowgirls, 14-1, in the first half but could not score. The Cardinal finally broke through in the 52nd minute when Kristy Zurmuhlen fired a shot through the legs of a defender and inside the far post.

Oklahoma State tied the score 17 minutes later when Sarah Brown struck on a 20-yard shot into the upper corner.

Stanford, which finished with a 21-3 edge in shots, won the game when senior Teresa Noyola pushed the ball wide to outside back Rachel Quon, who raced to the end line and hit a cross to the top of the six-yard box, where Taylor met the ball with a sliding first touch for the winner, her 20th goal of the season.

Stanford’s seniors – Zurmuhlen, Taylor, Noyola and Camille Levin – completed their home careers with a 53-0-1 mark at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium. They are 93-4-3 overall and take an unbeaten record into the College Cup for the third year in a row.
