The top-ranked Stanford women's soccer team continues its season-opening road trip with a match Friday at No. 8 Florida at Dizney Stadium on SEC Network.

It will be a rematch of last season's nonconference showdown at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium -- Jordan DiBiasi scored in the 96th minute to seal the overtime win. Stanford (2-0-0) is 4-0-1 all-time against the Gators (2-0-0).

Florida previously visited The Farm in the quarterfinals of the 2014 NCAA Tournament. After a 2-2 draw at the end of overtime, the Cardinal advanced to the college cup with a 4-3 win in penalty kicks.

Last week, Stanford started the season with a 4-0 win at Marquette on Friday and a 5-0 win against Wisconsin on Sunday in Milwaukee.

Redshirt junior Kyra Carusa and freshman Catarina Macario each netted three goals in the two matches. Carusa scored two against Marquette, and Macario scored a double against Wisconsin.

Sam Hiatt, Mariah Lee and Civana Kuhlmann also scored goals. It was Hiatt's second of her career and first in a Cardinal uniform after transferring from Boston College prior to the season.

Lee's goal was the second of her career, while Kuhlmann's strike marked her first collegiate goal.

The Cardinal shared the ball well in Milwaukee, totaling seven assists in two matches. Redshirt junior Jaye Boissiere and Jordan DiBiasi had two assists apiece, and Andi Sullivan, Tegan McGrady and Michelle Xiao each had one assist.

Friday's contest against Florida will broadcast live on SEC Network.
