Sophomore defender Annia Mejia scored her first career goal in the 77th minute as No. 20 California earned a 1-1 draw at No. 3 Stanford, ending the Cardinal's 10-game winning streak in the process.
Women's Swimming and Diving
The University of California Berkeley is a large public school located in beautiful Berkeley, California. As one of the nation's top schools with an overall rank of 54, Berkeley has a strong reputation for delivering a quality education. Popular majors include biology and biomedical sciences as well as majors in the social sciences. The California Golden Bears are led by head coach Teri McKeever - a veteran of the Berkeley women's swim team for 24 seasons. McKeever had led the team to four of the past seven NCAA championships and helped earn their fourth Pac-12 crown.
Player selections have been made as California prepares to host the 2015 PAC 7s Rugby Championship Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 7-8, on Witter Rugby Field, where Pac-12 member universities will vie for the conference crown in the same style of the sport going into the 2016 Summer Olympics.
Men's Water Polo
Faced with a top-five opponent in the final home meet of the fall season, the Cal men's swimming and diving team had its last chance Friday to show its fans what the future might hold once the calendar turns to 2016.
And, although a final score of 170.5 to 127.5 reflected the way in which the Bears were able to pull away from a strong North Carolina State squad, it wasn't necessarily the wins that provided the most excitement looking forward as fans filed out and the lights came on at Spieker Aquatics Complex.
Instead, continued improvement was the phrase of the day as the Bears improved to 3-0 in dual meets this season. Wins from up and down the lineup, coupled with good energy and some key scoring swims that didn't necessarily end in victories gave Cal what it needed to extend its dual meet win streak to 25. The win over NC State, coupled with a solid performance against Stanford in Wednesday's Triple Distance Meet, capped the fall home campaign with a strong final week.
An early second-half goal from freshman Janaye Sakkas put Cal field hockey ahead for most of its quarterfinal game against Maine, but an equalizer in the final three minutes of regulation forced overtime and an eventual golden goal as the Black Bears slipped by the Golden Bears 2-1 Friday evening at Alumni Turf Field on the SUNY Albany campus. Cal's season ends with a 9-10 record.
California plays its lone exhibition game in preparation for the 2015-16 season when the Golden Bears host Carroll College Monday night. The game tips off at 7 p.m. at Haas Pavilion and will televised live on the Pac-12 Networks.
Fans can get their first look at the newest Cal women's basketball squad today, Nov. 8 in a free exhibition game against Westmont at 2 p.m. PT Sunday in Haas Pavilion.
California 28, Oregon 44
What the loss means for Cal: Bad gets worse for the Bears. After starting the season 5-0, Cal has now dropped four straight and this one might've been the most disappointing. Quarterback Jared Goff -- against an Oregon secondary that showed little on film -- accounted for just two touchdowns and registered his second-worst passer rating of the season. On top of a slow offensive performance, the Bears' defense, which had showed progress under coordinator Art Kaufmann, looked like a worse version of the unit that played the last two seasons.
It's been a slide here, and there are no excuses to be made. We need to play better and be better. -Goff— Cal Football (@CalFootball) November 8, 2015
