[MEN'S COLLEGE: Friday]
Stanford hasn't gone to the NCAA Tournament since 2009 and California hasn't made the postseason since
2010, but they made huge statements on the opening day of the 2013 men's season.
The Cardinal tied No. 1 Maryland, 3-3, while Cal defeated No. 3 Georgetown, the 2012 national runner-up,
Stanford led the Terrapins, 2-0 and then 3-2, and had a chance to put the game away in the 86th minute but JJ Koval
hit his penalty kick off
the crossbar. Maryland responded almost immediately with the equalizer from Jake Pace
In overtime, Stanford lost Brian Nana-Sinkam
to a red card, but goalie Drew Hutchins
came up big to preserve the tie. Zach
led Stanford with two goals -- the second on a run past three Maryland defenders. Preseason All-Americans Patrick Mullins
and Schillo Tshuma
also scored for Maryland. (WATCH:

In Berkeley, the Hoyas had plenty of possession, but Connor Hallisey
scored from distance late in the first half to give the Golden Bears the lead and fifth-year senior Steve
added a penalty kick three minutes into the second half.
Hallisey moved through midfield and blasted a shot from 25 yards out to open the scoring in the 41st minute.
“We had possession out of the back,” Hallisey said. “I just moved into a gap. I got the ball and turned, and I had no pressure. I just dribbled at the backline, and
they weren’t stepping, so I just decided to take a shot, and it went in.”
The Bears doubled their lead after forward Stefano Bonomo
dribbled into the Georgetown box and was taken down for a penalty kick. Birnbaum -- one of three Cal co-captains -- calmly buried the ball in the back of the net for his third career goal. Upsets ...
