The Cardinal are 6-0-1 and have shown no trouble in maintaining the form that has taken them to consecutive national championship matches over the past two seasons. Friday’s game was a rematch of last year’s NCAA title bout, with Stanford gaining a measure of revenge in besting the Fighting Irish in a lightning-delayed contest, 2-1. The Tar Heels drop only as far as #2. If we’re to see Carolina and Stanford face off this year it would have to be in the NCAA Tournament.
The TopDrawerSoccer.com Women’s College Team of the Week is chosen after reviewing every match report for Division One soccer. Choosing this week’s winner was a tougher decision than usual, but we ultimately decided on Duke’s Kelly Cobb, who scored 2 goals and added 4 assists in a pair of Blue Devil wins, most notable a 7-2 defeat of Texas A&M.
A freshman forward from Alaska, Cobb has 5 goals and 4 assists for Duke thus far.
