Stanford men's soccer arrived in Seattle late Friday night ahead of Sunday's 5 p.m. NCAA Tournament third-round match at No. 2 seed Washington.
Sunday's third-round match will be shown live on the web on Washington's athletic channel.
With a full day in the Emerald City Saturday, the Cardinal did its share of sight-seeing and played a little bit of tourist before visiting Husky Field for a short workout.
The team loaded up on its bus in the mid-morning and headed out to Pike Place Market for a few hours of sight-seeing and lunch. The sight-seeing didn't come without a fun task for the players, however, as the coaching staff broke the team up into teams of four and tasked them with a photo scavenger hunt list.
After a few hours of exploring downtown Seattle, the Cardinal returned to its hotel and spent a few hours relaxing before heading to Husky Field for a one-hour workout. The light training session in the chilly but dry Seattle weather focused mainly on non-contact work and included fun drills for the players. The workout ended with the teams lined up in two lines the length of the field and using just headers to advance the ball towards goal, where the final player needed to tee up a one-timer for a teammate.
Training through for the day, the Cardinal finished the day with dinner at a local restaurant, then held one final team meeting which featured the results of the afternoon's photo scavenger hunt.
