The Blessing Worked

In the newly-christened Stevens Stadium, women’s soccer celebrated by knocking off No. 6 Stanford. The men won their home opener, too.

The women’s soccer team made the dedication and blessing of Stevens Stadium on Sept. 21 extra memorable by beating No. 6 Stanford 1–0. The lone goal came on a deflection of a corner kick with five minutes to play. The crowd of more than 3,000 included Mary Stevens ’84 and Mark Stevens, who made a $7.7 million gift to upgrade the playing surface of Buck Shaw Field and build a new state-of-the-art soccer training center. The now-6,400-capacity stadium underwent renovations to seats, video board and concessions, the press box, and plaza. The men’s soccer team won its first game in the stadium in dramatic fashion on Sept. 4, beating Wisconsin 2–1 four seconds into overtime.
