[COLLEGE WOMEN: Weekend]No. 2 Stanford remained unbeaten when fifth-year seniorCourtney Verloo completed her first collegiate hat trick by converting a free kick from 22 yards -- her second free-kick goal of the game -- in the 108th minute to give the Cardinal a 3-2 comeback victory at No. 13 Santa Clara before 3,252 fans on Sunday night.
 
Santa Clara had taken a 2-1 lead on a left-footed shot by Mexican international Sofia Huerta in the 83rd minute after the Cardinal was unable to clear a shot by Julie Johnston, but Verloo equalized with 54 seconds left in regulation when she scored from the penalty spot after freshman defender Maddie Bauerwas fouled inside the penalty area.

Verloo had scored on a free kick from just outside the box in the second minute, but Johnston one-timed a shot off one bounce into the goal in the 16th minute.

The win was the ninth consecutive victory for Stanford over Santa Clara, closing the gap in their series to 18-16-5 in the Broncos' favor.

“This was a game we feel we should have won,” said Santa Clara coach Jerry Smith. “We had the lead and gave them the tying goal. We scored two quality goals in the run of play and gifted them three goals on dead balls with fouls. I’m disappointed because I feel that we were the better team today."

UNBEATEN AND UNTIED. No. 1 Virginia improved to 9-0-0 with a 3-1 win at Pittsburgh on Sunday. The Cavaliers, who matched their best start to a season since 2004, fell behind onDana DelleFamine's breakaway in the 12th minute before recovering thanks to two goals from Makenzy Doniak and a goal and an assist  from Morgan Brian.

The Cavs are the only unbeaten and untied team in the country after the other four teams that were perfect at the beginning of the week all lost or tied.

-- No. 15 Denver began the week at 7-0-0 but tied TCU, 1-1, and lost to Nebraska, 2-1. Kristen Hamilton scored to become the Pioneers’ all-time scoring leader with 117 points with the opening goal in Lincoln, but the Cornhuskers answered 12 seconds later as Katie Kraeutner scored off a cross from Jordan Jackson. Jaycie Johnson scored off a cross from Samantha Areman for the winner in the 79th minute.
 
-- No. 22 Michigan handed Iowa its first defeat after seven wins with a 2-1 victory over the Hawkeyes on goals by leading scorer Nkem Ezurike and Kayla Mannino, whose goal came just 59 seconds after freshman Bri Toelle's equalizer.

-- No. 10 Georgetown had to settle for a 1-1 tie with UCF after starting the season with seven wins. Junior Tatiana Coleman's penalty kick earned the Knights the draw, which snapped the Hoyas' home winning streak at 16 games.

-- Unranked Penn began the week at 4-0-0 but had to settle for ties at William & Mary (0-0) and Old Dominion (2-2).

ACC WATCH.Senior Hayley Brock scored the game’s lone goal in the fourth minute to lead No. 23 Maryland to a 1-0 win over No. 3 Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons suffered their first loss of 2013.

-- Crystal Dunn scored the first hat trick of her career as No. 5 North Carolina ended a two-match losing streak with a 4-0 win at Miami. It was the first UNC hat trick in almost three years.

--  Junior midfielder Marta Bakowska-Mathews scored on a free kick in the 87th minute to lift No. 7 Florida State to a 1-0 victory over N.C. State.  The goal was the first of the season for the English native.

Freshman Watch ...

-- Darian Jenkins scored her team-leading sixth and seventh goals of the season to lead No. 6 UCLA to a 2-0 win over Pepperdine in Malibu and a 3-0 win at Loyola Marymount.

    I am not a Santa Clara fan but as an ex-referee I found the penalty call that I watched on ESPNU to be a joke considering the calls during the rest of the match.
