Haley Rosen took advantage of a loose ball inside the 18-yard box to score in the 67th minute, and second-ranked Stanford salvaged a 1-1 draw against No. 16 Portland at Cagan Stadium on Saturday night.
After a Cardinal corner kick, the ball took a few deflections before falling to the feet of Rosen.
Portland got a goal from Emily Sippel in the 11th minute. It came off a cross from Ellen Parker. The pass went just over the out-stretched hands of Stanford goalkeeper Emily Oliver, and Sippel was near the left post and buried it.
Stanford's Jane Campbell, who replaced an injured Oliver in the first half, made four stops, while Pilots goalkeeper Erin Dees had nine saves as both team moved to 2-0-1.
Stanford opened the season last weekend with narrow wins on the road against Boston College and Connecticut.
Stanford had five of the top six finishers over the 5K course, led by runner-up Jessica Tonn (17:44.9) and No. 3 Aisling Cuffe (17:44.9). Cal's Kelsey Santisteban won in 17:26.1.
Jockey Juan Sanchez sustained a deep laceration in his right thigh when his mount in the sixth race, Lightonthebrandy, crashed through the inner rail on the turf course at Golden Gate Fields. The gelding escaped serious injury.
Former Stanford star Nneka Ogwumike had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and Los Angeles (21-8) posted an 80-67 win over San Antonio (11-19). Ex-Cardinal Jayne Appel had 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Silver Stars, who were eliminated from playoff contention with the loss.
San Jose Giants
Myles Schroder went 2 for 4, including his sixth homer of the year, and San Jose posted a 5-3 home win over Inland Empire. Chris Lofton scored from second base on Matt Duffy's sacrifice bunt in the seventh inning to put the Giants ahead 4-3. Relievers Luis Rojas (7-5), Stephen Harrold and Jose Casilla combined to pitch four shutout innings.
