STANFORD - California men's soccer head coach Kevin Grimes earned his 100th career coaching victory at Cal on Saturday when the 10th-ranked Golden Bears topped Stanford, 1-0, at Stanford. Sophomore Servando Carrasco kicked in a rebound off a shot by sophomore Hector Jimenez in overtime to give the Bears the victory. Cal improved to 7-2-4, 2-1-2 with the victory.
"I have been very fortunate to coach many great players and wonderful people," Grimes said. "I hold a special place in my heart for all the guys I've coached. To be able to do it at the finest institution in the world makes it even more special."
Carrasco, Jimenez and sophomore Davis Paul provided all the scoring chances in the match as Carrasco and Jimenez tallied three shots on goal, while Paul recorded four. Carrasco's goal was his third of the season, the second most on the team. Jimenez's assist was the seventh of the campaign for him, and he leads the team in that category.
Junior goalkeeper Stefan Frei made two saves and earned his fifth shutout of the season.
Cal and Stanford (3-7-2, 1-3-1) were even in shot totals with each team recording 12.
Next week is Cal's bye week. The Bears return to action on Oct. 31 when they head to Southern California to face UCLA at 7:30 p.m.
