NCAA soccer: Stanford wins women’s championship, College Cup set for men’s tournament

After years of NCAA tournament disappointiment, Stanford won its first women’s championship with a 1-0 victory over Duke on Sunday in Kennesaw, Ga. The Cardinal (25-0-1) lost in the final the previous two seasons. Video here.

Meantime, Creighton’s 1-0 victory over South Florida in extra time rounded out the semifinal field for the men’s College Cup: top-seeded North Carolina (20-2-2) vs. No. 13 UCLA (18-4-1) and second-seeded Creighton (21-2-0, 18 shutouts, five goals against) vs. unseeded Charlotte (16-4-3) on Friday in Hoover, Ala. ESPNU will show the semifinals, as well as Sunday’s title game.

Finally, a special shout-out to Ohio Wesleyan Coach Jay Martin, who, by virtue of his team’s Division III title, became the winningest coach in men’s college soccer history (608).

Steven Goff is The Post’s soccer writer. His beats include D.C. United, MLS and the international game, as well as local college basketball.
