Stanford Clinches Top Seed

DAVIS, Calif. - Stanford clinched at least a share of the Pac-12 regular season title and the No. 1 seed in the Pac-12 Tournament on Saturday after taking down UC Davis 21-8. The win pushed the Cardinal to double digit wins at 10-3 and continued the perfect streak in conference play at 6-0.

The share of the Pac-12 regular season crown is Stanford's third regular season title in four years and the program's 17th total regular season championship.

Jordyn Case scored five goals on a game-high eight shots to lead the Cardinal to a season best 21 goals. The offensive effort included nine goals in the opening period. 

The Cardinal has now scored 17+ goals in nine games this season winning, each. Stanford has also won five straight games and 10 of its last 11.

11 different scorers got involved in Davis, California, including three first time scorers. Lindsey Devir, Kaleigh Sommers, and Ava Brosnan each opened their Stanford accounts in the dominant victory.

Jay Browne was second on the scoresheet in points behind Case, adding two goals and two assists for four total points. Browne's pair of assists give her 94 in her Stanford career, the third most.

Lucy Pearson and Olivia Geoghan split the goalkeeping duties, holding Davis to just eight goals on the day. This marks the fifth straight game allowing eight goals or less.

The Cardinal was in front in nearly all statistical categories including shots (34-17), shots on goal (24-13), draw controls (18-14), and caused turnovers (8-5).

Stanford used a committee approach on the draw circle, led by Madison McPherson with five DCs. Ava Arceri also chipped in three controls while Jordyn Case, Jay Browne, and Katy Gilbert each had two.

Stanford returns to action next week at Stony Brook for the final nonconference game of the season on Thursday April 25 before concluding the regular season at home against California on Saturday, April 27.

Following the conclusion of the regular season next weekend, Stanford will head to the Pac-12 Tournament as the No. 1 seed in Los Angeles.
