Lo'eau LaBonta, starting for the first time at forward, had a goal and an assist to lead No. 2 Stanford to a 4-1 women's soccer victory over Arizona on Thursday night, extending the Cardinal's Pac-12 win streak to 37 matches.
Stanford (12-1-1, 6-0 Pac-12) moved alone into third place on the NCAA Division I all-time list of consecutive conference victories. Only North Carolina (1994-2000) with 55 in the ACC, and Florida (1997-2001) with 49 in the SEC, had more.
After Chioma Ubogagu opened the scoring with a 22-yard left-footed shot in the first half, the defending national champion Cardinal got three goals -- from LaBonta, Alex Doll and Alina Garciamendez -- within a 20-minute span of the second half to take a 4-0 lead.
The Wildcats (5-7-3, 1-3-2) scored in the 74th minute after Candi Osei-Agyemang stole a pass deep in the Stanford end.
The Cardinal's last conference loss was on Oct. 31, 2008 -- 1-0 at UCLA.
The Vandals' Chelsea Small broke through five minutes into the second half, and Annie Millard added a goal at the 73-minute mark.
UCLA's Abby Dahlkemper (Sacred Heart Prep) and Pepperdine's Michelle Pao (Monta Vista High) were also named as candidates for college soccer's top player award.
Torry McTyer, a 6-foot-1, 176-pound "athlete" from Cathedral High-Los Angeles, has given an oral commitment to play football at Cal, according to Scout.com. McTyer, who ran the 100 meters in 10.7 seconds as a junior last spring, plays wide receiver and defensive back.
The Broncos were led by Megan Anders' 12 kills and Kayla Lommori's 10.
