    Tierna Davidson was hacked bad. Looks like an ankle injury.

    Davidson and Xiao. Two of their best players.

    Was there any report on the injuries? Davidson's looked really bad. Xiao, it was hard to tell, but she let out a yelp when she went down. Hope for the best for them. Injuries suck ass.

    There wasn’t a report because as you might know top programs are notoriously tight lipped about injuries. My player’s knee getting scoped was never reported. I hope that they both recover fully.

    I’m interested in the LMU vs UCLA game. LMU is local and I know their coach. But doubt they can keep up with UCLA’s talent.

    LMU best UCLA in the spring. UCLA had 13 field players and were missing most of their starters but it was 1-0.

    I hope that UCLA wins. Anything can happen in college Soccer.

    LMU always puts a quality team on the field. I’m not saying they’ll beat UCLA but don’t be surprised if it’s a one goal game or even a tie.

    Definitely possible. Especially with their roster heavy with So Cal players. But with this earlier UCLA loss and in a game that matters in regards to rankings and maybe some local bragging rights. I can see as Swoosh pointing out a fleury of goals.

    It will be interesting to see how seriously $C takes them. I am hoping that they treat them like USD. Long Beach is a good team.

    Last official meeting in 2016 went to Long Beach State, I'd say it's serious. Plus it's senior day, earliest senior day of my recent memory.

    Weird to have senior day this early. UCLA will have an early senior day too but that is because the last 3 games are on the road.

    I agree with this assessment, but neither has played much this season (Davidson due to USWNT commitments and Xiao due to some other mysterious injury) so I think we will weather this storm:
    • Macario is still making an insane impact despite whatever her nagging injury is,
    • Madison Haley is back (and making an impact),
    • Sophia Smith looks like the real deal, and
    • Jaye Boissier, the NCAA championship hero (or villain depending on your perspective) is back.
    It's amazing Stanford is 6-0 at this point given their tough schedule and how many players have had to miss games so far. Though I'd really hate to be missing Davidson come NCAA tournament time. And, for her sake, I hope this injury doesn't keep Davidson from playing with the USWNT in World Cup qualifying next month.

    Its really not that amazing if you think about it.
    There are two teams on the west coast that dont drop off one bit when a starter goes down.
    The players on the bench are just as good.
    Literally, its a zero sum gain.
    I watched Sanchez play the role of the Canadian, and it was different, but just as good.

    It will be a good game regardless of the score. I hope to see a motivated and aggressive team ready to make a statement. I think that this is their first step towards a big run. They learned some things and made some adjustments and know that they only have a few games where they get to have their first choice lineup until the second half of October.

    I think that this group will be hitting on all cylinders come the stretch run in league.

    I’m going to have to agree with @Ricky Fandango on this one sort of. Stanford got the top recruiting class 3 out of the last 4 years. They play everyone they can get in early in the season to build depth and rest players. When they play the LA schools they stick to their best 16. It doesn’t hurt when players 12-16 are U20 National team players and everyone of the 28 players on the roster is a YNT player! They have talented players that were top 40 in their recruiting classes on their bench that won’t see one minute of PT! The injuries have actually allowed lots more players to play than would ordinarily have.

    On a team full of unicorns only the alarcorns may stand out, however, it’s still a team of unicorns...
