Strange Goings On at The Farm

Stanford 1-1 UNC, 2OT

Yaaaas, that’s KO scoring on a certain Ashlyn Harris of the visiting Tar Heels to level the game 1-1. UNC struck first with a give-and-go from Casey Nogueira to Tobin Heath. The game would go on double overtime and despite Baby Press making life difficult for Ash in the latter stages, her goaltending (6 saves) preserves the draw.

That game is epic for several reasons. Three future recipients of the MAC Herman Trophy were on the pitch, all Cardinal (KO, Press & Teresa Noyola—all three would play for the national title, with Tess finally winning one for the Card in 2011.)

No less than six ’15ers (O’Hara, Press, Engen, Harris, Heath, & Klingenberg) saw action in the match. Many more players were current or former USWNT, U-WNT, WPS or NWSL (Nogueira, Noyola, Allie Long, Lindsay Taylor, Ali Riley, Nikki Washington, Allison Falk etc…).

The Last Hurrah a/k/a Black Gloves

Images of KO’s penultimate game (and final win) as a Cardinal, and the dinner on the eve of Stanford’s 2-1 win over the UCLA Bruins in the NCAA Women’s Championships semifinals. The snapbacks have the College Cup/Pac-10 conference champions logo on them.

KO put Stanford on the board with an assist from Baby Press. Cheney then equalized for UCLA. Press scored unassisted in sudden death OT.

KO’s last win as an collegiate athlete. Cardinal brought a clean sheet (25-0) to the championship on December 6, but infamously lost to UNC.

KO & Press ended the season with a combined 123 points, the highest scoring tandem in the country, and were instrumental in reestablishing Stanford as a dominant power in NCAA Division 1.

Rachel Quon, Ali Riley, Alicia Jenkins, Kira Maker, Kristin Stannard, Hillary Heath, Lindsay Taylor, Morgan Redman, Madeleine Thompson, Courtney Verloo appear in pics.

Hands-down GOAT Stanford x Cal (x kellex) game: 


KO in her headband phase, and she was wearing a red one. Matchy-matchy with Alex.😻😻😻

Except for the hat trick, of course. Sorry Alex. ⚽️⚽️⚽️

Too much to get into. Brianna Bak, Alicia Jenkins, Ali Riley & KO at the coin toss…Ali at Amanda White’s heels…Allison McCann x Baby Horse…Mariah Nogueira and Baby Press celebrating KO’s brace (two consecutive headers)…KO celebrating for three…UNDEFEATED. 

—at least for another month.
