Hanover, NH - Roger Levesque continued to prove he is one of the top collegiate soccer players in the country as he scored two goals and added two assists to help power top-ranked and unbeaten Stanford to a 6-0 victory over Richmond on Saturday afternoon at the Dartmouth Tournament.
The first goal came at 12:16 of the first half when Levesque took a pass from Todd Dunivant and fired point-blank range past the Richmond goalkeeper. Seven minutes later, Levesque fired a shot that deflected off the Spiders goalkeeper.
Levesque collected his team-leading eighth assist of the season when he fired a pass to Darren Fernandez who pushed it into the Richmond net at 23:51 to make it a 3-0 Stanford lead.
Stanford added two more first-half goals by Todd Dunivant at 27:13 and Johanes Maliza at 28:08. Levesque was credited with his ninth assist of the season on Dunivant's score.
James Twellman collected Stanford's lone goal of the second half at 62:39 when he took a pass from Todd Leber to drill a shot down the middle of the Richmond net.
The six goals was the most since the 2002 season when Stanford defeated Illinois-Chicago, 6-0, in the third round of the NCAA Tournament.
Levesque's six points (2 goals, 2 assists) now gives the senior All-American forward a team-leading 17 points.
Robby Fulton collected his second straight shutout, and third of the year.
Sunday (9/22, 2:30 p.m. et), Stanford will face Dartmouth.
