SANTA CLARA, Calif. – In a matchup of two evenly matched teams, eighth-seeded Santa Clara beat Cal 1-0 in double overtime in the first round of the NCAA Tournament from Stevens Stadium.
The lone tally of the match came off the head of Izzy D'Aquila with 26 seconds remaining before penalty kicks. Keren Goor sent a beautiful ball into the box that D'Aquila outjumped the defenders and goalkeeper for. After a bounce, the ball found the side of the net to keep the Broncos (11-6-3) dancing.
It was a slugfest from the start.
