It took a while, but the Stanford women's soccer team finally produced its "Dynamic Duo" for the 2010 season ... in fact, the Cardinal have gone one better, joining Siena as the nation's only teams with three double-digit goalscorers this season: senior forward Christen Press (26), junior midfielder Teresa Noyola (10) and junior forward Lindsay Taylor (10). Noyola and Taylor both scored their 10th goals of the season to help fuel the recent 5-0 NCAA quarterfinal rout of Florida State.

Stanford joins fellow semifinalists Notre Dame and Boston College on the list of Division I women's soccer teams with multiple double-digit goalscorers in 2010. There now are 22 teams with this rare Dynamic Duo distinction (15 of those teams qualified for the 2010 NCAA tournament).   (note – research courtesy of CollegeSoccer360.com)


Here are the teams in the 2010 NCAA semifinals that feature double-digit goalscorers:
• Stanford ... Christen Press (26), Teresa Noyola (10) and Lindsay Taylor (10)
• Notre Dame ... Melissa Henderson (17) and Rose Augustin (11)
• Boston College ... Victoria DiMartino (14) and Kristen Mewis (10)
Note – Paige Maxwell leads Ohio State with 10 goals, followed by Tiffany Cameron (7)

Four teams in the country have produced multiple players with 12-plus goals: Florida, Boston University, Hofstra and Virginia. North Carolina nearly had three double-digitgoalscorers (Kealia Ohai 14, Courtney Jones 11, Crystal Dunn 9).

Three teams in the round-of-16 were close to joining the Dynamic Duos list, but came up short: Georgetown (Camille Trujillo 13, Ingrid Wells 9) ... UC Irvine (Tanya Taylor 11, CoCo Goodson 9) .... and Duke (Laura Weinberg 10, Mollie Pathman 8).

  
In addition to the teams mentioned above, there were six other NCAA participants with a pair of double-digit goalscorers: South Florida, St. Francis (PA), Texas A&M, UNC Greensboro, Central Florida and Maryland. Seven teams that did not qualify for the 2010 NCAAs – most notably bubble teams Denver and Nebraska – finished their seasons with two double-digit goalscorers.

A full listing of the 22 teams follows at the bottom of this blog post.
