PULLMAN, Wash. – Stanford’s 26-match Pac-12 road winning streak was snapped by Washington State, 1-0, on Sunday, ending a women’s soccer streak that had reached five years.
The loss also officially ended Stanford’s four-year reign as Pac-12 champions, though UCLA would have clinched the title later in the afternoon with its 2-0 victory over Oregon.
No. 7 Stanford (13-4-1 overall, 6-3-1 Pac-12) has had trouble in Pullman in recent years, pulling out victories in overtime and in the 86th minute in its past two trips there. This time, a goal by Jocelyn Jeffers in the 58th minute held up for the Cougars (13-3-3, 6-3-1).
Stanford edged WSU in shots, 13-12, but the Cougars dominated on corners, 11-3, on the way to ending an eight-match losing streak to the Cardinal.
Stanford concludes the regular season on Wednesday when California visits in a 7:30 p.m. match televised on the Pac-12 Networks.
