Cardinal falls as four shots hit woodwork

[STANFORD-CALIFORNIA] Stanford's regular season of misery finally ended as it fell to archrival California, 1-0, on Rachel Mercik's golden goal. A crowd of 1,455 at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium watched in disbelief as the Cardinal hit the woodwork four times and slumped to 6-5-0 in Pac-12 play.

Stanford finished the regular season with an overall record of 13-5-1. It had lost only four times over the previous four seasons. Its five Pac-12 losses were the most in 20 years of conference play.

Cal's win was the first over Stanford in seven seasons. The Bears have also had their troubles recently as they went six games without a win before beating Washington on Sunday.
