College Men: Stanford improves to 5-0-0 in Pac-12

Stanford scored three times in less than 15 minutes in the second half to beat UCLA, 3-0, and improve to 5-0-0 in the Pac-12. The Cardinal is six points clear of Washington halfway through the conference schedule.

It’s just the second time in program history the Cardinal has put together a five-match conference winning streak in the same season. The 2000 squad also did so in the first year of Pac-12 men’s soccer.
 
“It was a tremendous weekend,” Stanford head coach Jeremy Gunn said of the weekend that began with a 3-1 win over San Diego State. “We can be very excited about how the first five have gone, but there are miles to go. There’s no room for complacency because every single one of these games can have different outcomes. If we keep showing up with the right mentality and the right work rate then the class of how we’re playing right now can hopefully shine through.”
 
Sam Werner started the 15-minute barrage in the 66th when Corey Baird cut a ball back to the top of the box and Werner put it away to the far post. Tanner Beason and Adam Mosharrafa followed with goals to give Stanford its largest win over UCLA.

The Cardinal outshot UCLA 20-11, and forced Bruin freshman Kevin Silva into a season-high eight saves.
