Auburn 0-3 Stanford: Cardinal too strong

A defensive breakdown in the last 10 minutes doomed the Auburn soccer team as it dropped a 3-0 decision to No. 6 Stanford on Friday afternoon at the Turner Soccer Complex in Athens, Ga.

"We played a great first half. We knew Stanford was going to start fast and goal number one was to not let them score in the first 10 minutes and we did a great job of that," Auburn coach Karen Hoppa said. "[Allison] Whitworth played amazingly and we got to halftime zero-zero, which we felt we could build on, which we did."

Stanford (4-0-0) dominated possession in the first 45 minutes and held Auburn without a good scoring chance and just one shot while taking nine shots of its own.

Stanford's Christen Press broke the deadlock in the 59th minute, converting a one-on-one with Whitworth.

Lindsay Taylor put the Cardinal up 2-0 in the 80th minute when she scored following a free kick and then Morgan Redman iced the game just over a minute later .

"We played a great 80 minutes but after the second goal we just crumbled and that's not typical of Auburn soccer. To give up two goals in the last 10 minutes is unacceptable and that's something we need to fix from a mentality standpoint," Hoppa said. "On the positive side for 80 minutes we played toe-to-toe with the number six team in the country."
