DOUBLE-50 PRETTY NIFTY – Stanford's current offensive duo of senior Kelley O'Hara (59 pts; 23G-13A) and junior Christen Press (51 pts; 19G-13A) on Nov. 14 became the 24th pair of teammates in Division I women's soccer history to reach 50 points in the same season. Press scored twice in the NCAA first round (2-0 vs. Northern Arizona) and again in the second round (2-0 vs. BYU), with O'Hara assisting on all four of the Cardinal goals so far in the NCAAs.


Entering the NCAAs, Press was one of only eight players in the nation with double-digit goal and assists, with O'Hara now joining Press on that short list of versatile offensive players.

Stanford junior forward Christen Press (left; Palos Verdes Estates, Calif.) – who several weeks ago became the first player in the nation with double-digit goals and assists – scored three of Stanford's four goals this week in a pair of 2-0 NCAA Tournament wins (vs. NAU & BYU). Her 51 points this season include 19 goals and 13 assists.

O'Hara and Press are only the third 50-50 combo in the past nine seasons (2001-09). Notre Dame's Kerri Hanks and Katie Thorlakson both totaled 71 points in the 2005 season, while Hanks (66 pts) and ND teammate Michele Weissenhofer (53) duplicated the 50-50 feat in 2006.


With a continued run of points in the NCAAs, O'Hara and Press also could become the fifth pair of teammates ever to each reach 60 points in the same season (O'Hara need only one more point to reach 60 while Press is nine shy).
