Cardinal is fine form at Hawaii

Stanford, ranked No. 2 in the Soccer America Women's Top 25, looked great in its game late Sunday night at Hawaii, a 6-2 win. Juniors Kelley O'Hara and Christen Press both scored two goals.

Coach Paul Ratcliffe started two freshmen on the backline -- Alina Garciamendez in the middle and Rachel Quon at right back -- and Courtney Verloo had a goal and two assists in her collegiate debut off the bench.

Ratcliffe: "We were just happy to get six goals. But we need to keep working on a lot of things. In the back, we still have work to do. The midfield has work to do. But, offensively, we looked strong."

* Here is the first Soccer America Women's Team of the Week, led by Carolina's Casey Nogueira.

* Several records were broken or tied over the weekend:

-- Senior Jessica Okoroafo set a Purdue record when she scored the first goal in the 5-0 win over Ohio and had both goals in a 2-1 victory at Butler, giving her 14 game-winning goals, one more than Lauren Sesselmann had in her career (2001-05).

-- Welshwoman Shan Jones tied the Middle Tennessee school record with four goals in an 11-1 victory over Alabama A&M.
