Ozer recorded a total of eight goals and three assists in the Cardinal’s two wins, while Dikeou found the back of the net four times and also picked up seven ground balls, forced four turnovers and was awarded two draw controls. Both players have been a key part of Stanford’s success so far this season. Ozer leads the team on attack with goals (39) and assists (18) and Dikeou has helped control the midfield with the leading number of turnovers (23) and strong numbers on draw controls and ground balls.

No. 14 Stanford (10-4, 5-1 MPSF) will finish its regular season on the road this week, facing UC-Davis on Thursday followed by archrival Cal on Saturday.
