Taylor strikes twice again to give Stanford title

[PAC-12] After falling behind for only the second time this season, No. 1 Stanford got two second-half goals from Lindsay Taylor and beat Oregon State, 2-1, on Friday night and clinched its third consecutive Pac-12 championship. It was the third consecutive two-goal performance for Taylor, who scored her 15th and 16th goals of the year, matching her single-season high set during her first-team All-America season of 2008.

The Beavers went ahead on fourth-minute goal by Jenna Richardson, but Stanford came back on goals by Taylor, the Pac-12’s leading scorer, in the 54th and 65th minutes.

Following its 2-0 win at Oregon on Sunday, Stanford is 18-0-1 overall and 10-0-0 in the Pac-12 with one match left.

The Pac-12 doesn't have a post-season tournament.
