Golden Bears will look to conquer Stanford tonight on the soccer pitch.

Yes, yours truly will be on the scene to witness and hopefully update (assuming internet connection) the action from Part 1 of the Bay Area Derby. Can the high scoring (top in the nation!) Golden Bears get their customary 3 goals (or more!) against our biggest rival?

Like Cal Football, Cal Men's Soccer is good at scoring with 3 goals per game average. Sadly, the Bears also concedes 2 goals per game to their opponents, which is about twice that of 'Furd, for whatever that's worth.

It's a close fight for the top of the Pac-12 conference, the Golden Bears are merely a point out of the logjam for first place with a game to go before the halfway point.

Teams Pts Conf Overall
WASHINGTON 7 2-1-1 9-2-1
STANFORD 7 2-1-1 7-2-1
UCLA 10 3-1-1 8-3-3
CALIFORNIA 6 2-2-0 8-3-0
OREGON STATE 4 1-3-1 8-5-1
SAN DIEGO STATE 3 1-3-0 7-6-0

In the all-time match up between the two schools, 'Furd has a slim 24-22-8 lead. Sadly, 'Furd only pulled ahead recently thanks to a 4-1-1 record in the last 6 meetings against the Bears. Cal's last victory at 'Furd came in 2010 (so we're due).

GO BEARS!
