When the Stanford women’s soccer team was deemed No. 1 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll last week, the only question was whether the Cardinal could hold on to the spot when meeting local rival Santa Clara University on Sunday, Oct. 3. Turns out there was no cause for concern there. In the second half of Sunday’s match, CHRISTEN PRESS and LINDSAY TAYLOR scored within 1 minute, 39 seconds of each other to lift their team to a 2-0 victory.
