Going into the round of 16, everyone assumed Stanford would need several heroic performances to upset No. 1 Marshall and move on to the elite eight. Senior center-back Noah Adnan stepped up to the plate with one of the greatest games a center-back has ever had, as he assisted the opener before making two goal-line clearances on either side of halftime to preserve the clean sheet. It means the Maryland native single-handedly caused a three-goal swing in a performance to be remembered forever.
