It is Stanford’s fifth trip to the College Cup in the last six years, and they are gunning for the program’s second national championship. They will face Florida State on Friday, December 5th at 4:30 pm PST. If they win, they will play in the national championship match on Sunday at 10:00 am PST against the winner of the Virginia – Texas A & M semifinal.
NCAA Division I Men’s Bracket
Impressively, Bay Oaks had three alums competing in the NCAA Men’s Soccer Sweet 16 round this past weekend. Although none will be moving on, we congratulate these players on their fine seasons, as all were key contributors to their team’s success.
Max Oldham finished an impressive career at Cal with tough 3-2 loss against Pac-12 rival UCLA. Cal battled back from a deficit twice in the game, but couldn’t pull even at the end. Max is part of the senior class at Cal that is credited with bringing the program back to national heights during the four-year span of their careers.
Also playing in his final collegiate game this weekend was Charlie Ranahan at the University of Washington. The Huskies couldn’t survive their second straight penalty shootout, losing on kicks to Michigan State in the round of 16.
UC Irvine and Noah Gaines were knocked off by No. 11 Providence in a tight 1-0 battle. The Anteaters had one of their best seasons in history, with 16 victories matching the program’s single-season record. Winning two matches in the NCAA tournament was a first for the program and with two more years of eligibility remaining, Noah will look to help his team take things even further in future seasons.
