Keeper Campbell wins shootout for Stanford

Stanford goalkeeper Jane Campbell scored in the fifth round of the shootout to give Stanford a 4-3 victory on penalty kicks over Florida after their game ended in a 2-2 draw. The win sends the Cardinal to the Women's College Cup for the sixth time in seven years.
 
Stanford took leads on goals by Taylor Uhl and Kendall Romine, but Florida answered each time, first on an own goal and then on Havana Solaun’s goal in the 79th minute.
 
In the shootout, Stanford opened up a 2-0 lead on goals by Romine and Lo’eau LaBonta after Annie Bobbitt hit the post and Campbell saved Annie Speese's shot. Chioma Ubogagu missed for the Cardinal, giving the Gators new life, but Campbell broke the 3-3 deadlock to give Stanford the win.

“It’s never going to be easy winning in the quarterfinals," said Stanford coach Paul Ratcliffe. "It’s always going to be difficult and I feel for Florida because I know how difficult it is when you’re so close. I thought they had an amazing game. We’re happy to be back. Last year, we didn’t get there. I think it’s a great treat for the kids and the thing we all look forward to is going to the final four. It’s going to be a really fun weekend and the opportunity to claim the national championship is a great karat for all of us.”
