Cal men upset Santa Clara in Stanford Invitational 

The Cal men’s soccer team won its fifth game of the season against Bay Area rival No. 22 Santa Clara Thursday night, 2-1, in Buck Shaw Stadium. Sophomore Carl Acosta led the Golden Bears to their fourth straight victory, recording both of Cal’s goals.  

Acosta’s first score came at the 27:20 mark when he took a pass flicked on from a long goalkeeper punt, beat the Santa Clara defender and slammed home his second goal of the season. He would capitalize again just five minutes later after a cross deflected off both a Cal player and a Bronco player to his waiting feet where he slid a low ball past Santa Clara netminder Steve Cronin.  

Cal field hockey gets overtime win over Georgetown 

In a steady rain on Kehoe Field the California field hockey team (6-1) took its fifth straight win in a 3-2 overtime victory against Georgetown (3-4). Regional All-American Nora Feddersen scored her second goal of the season to give the Golden Bears the edge over the Hoyas two and a half minutes into overtime.  

With only six minutes remaining in regulation time, Jessica Quinn fired another past Bear goalkeeper, Kelly Knapp, who before this game had allowed only three goals past her between the pipes, to tie the game, 2-2. Feddersen zipped the game-winning shot off of a corner.
