Chioma Ubogagu scored from the box in the 30th minute, and the sixth-ranked Stanford women's soccer team edged No. 11 Portland 1-0 on Saturday.

Cardinal goalkeeper Jane Campbell got the shutout with two saves against the Pilots (1-2).

Stanford has opened its season with its first-ever win over North Carolina (then ranked No. 4), followed by another shutout win two days later over then No. 18 Duke.

All three matches were on the road.

San Jose Giants

Despite a three-run first inning the Giants saw their decade-long run of California League playoff appearances snapped with a 10-5 loss to High Desert in Adelanto.

The Giants, who were battling for a wild-card berth into the final series of the regular season, will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2003. The Giants end the season with two more games against the Mavericks.

Tyler Horan had a two-run single in the Giants' first-inning rally and Mitch Delfino homered in the third. But the Mavericks' Chantz Mack broke a 5-5 tie in the bottom of the fifth with a leadoff home run and the Giants managed just two hits the rest of the game.

Cross country

The Stanford women's team won the USF Invitational ahead of Cal, while the Bears beat the Cardinal in the men's race at Golden Gate Park.

Cal runners finished 1-3, led by Yohaness Estifanos in 25:07.3.

    Yachting

    Former America's Cup skipper Terry Hutchinson backed down from his contention Artemis Racing was sailing an unsafe catamaran when it capsized on San Francisco Bay, killing Andrew "Bart" Simpson on May 9, 2013.

    In an interview with Maxim magazine earlier this month, he was quoted as saying he "had a massive falling out with the owner of the team and the CEO about the safety of our yacht so they decided to terminate me. ... It was a known thing that the boat was not safe."

    On Friday, Hutchinson said on his Facebook page that the Maxim interview "included some untrue statements and inaccurate remarks I made about Artemis Racing. To be clear, Artemis Racing is a well-organized and responsible professional sailing team."
