    GAME NOTES

    • USC improved to 5-3 all-time against Stanford and has won four straight over the Cardinal.

    • The Women of Troy extended their conference regular-season winning streak to 17 straight MPSF games; one shy of tying the league record of 18 set by Denver (2013-15).

    • The Trojans have now won 33 of their last 37 games.
    • Stanford became the first and only MPSF team to reach 10 goals against the Trojans this season. The Cardinal is also the first MPSF team to score double-digit goals against USC since April 19, 2015. That day, Stanford scored 12 goals; the last time USC dropped a league contest.
    • Senior attacker Michaela Michael scored five goals in a game for the eighth time in her career. She secured a hat trick for the 37th time in her career.

She also moves into third all-time in MPSF history.
