Oct. 21, 2001
SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Santa Clara University's men's soccer lost yet another game by one goal on Sunday evening at Buck Shaw Stadium, this time to No. 8 Stanford by a score of 1-0.
Santa Clara (6-7-0), which had won its previous two games by 2-1 scores, looked good at times on offensive while playing their usual steady style of defense. The Broncos ended up the evening with 10 shots, five in each half, but none could find the back of the net.
Stanford (11-1-0) ended up with 12 shots on the night, including Roger Levesque's shot in the 71st minute that found the back of the net, beating freshman netminder Steve Cronin with his head. Levesque's eighth goal of the season came off a perfect pass from Aaron Biddle that was sent from thirty-five yards out on the right side.
Andrew Terris played very well for the Cardinal, making four saves, while his counterpart Cronin made five to keep the Broncos in the game.
The Broncos have lost six of their seven games this season by 1-0 scores, the only other loss coming to Bradley University in August by a score of 2-0.
Santa Clara will resume West Coast Conference action next Saturday evening when they host the Gonzaga Bulldogs in a critical game. The Bulldogs are currently 2-0-1 and in first place in the conference, while the Broncos are close on their heals with a 2-0-0 conference mark.
