Moraga, CA - In the WWLL North Division playoffs, Stanford handed St. Mary's a 12-9 loss at St. Mary's Stadium. The Cardinal is now 12-5 overall, 7-0 WWLL and will head to the WWLL Final Four next weekend at Berkeley. This marks Stanford third defeat of the Gaels this season including a 15-7 victory on April 18 to close out the regular season.

The Gaels scored the first goal at 1:10 into the first half, their only lead of the game. Two minutes later freshman Abbi Hills (Lakewood, CO/Colorado Academy) put in the first Stanford goal, which was quickly followed by a goal from sophomore Liz Lanese (St. Louis, MO/Mary Institute & St. Louis CDS) and another from senior tri-captain Katharine Barnes (Northhampton, MA/Deerfield Academy). The Cardinal then matched the next three goals by St. Mary's and went into halftime ahead 7-4. Junior tri-captain Caroline Osterwise (Villanova, PA/Harriton HS) put in a goal at 0:24 to start the second half and Stanford kept the Gaels at least two goals away for the rest of the game.

Barnes finished the game with 4 goals to lead to the team and Lanese and Hills each recorded three goals. Junior Liz Britt (Summit, NJ/Summit HS) added one goal for the Cardinal and Osterwise had 1 goal and 1 assist. This win takes Stanford to the WWLL Final Four next Saturday where they will face one of the winners from this week's South Division playoffs, game time to be announced.
