Top-ranked Stanford suffered a 2-0 loss to visiting Tulsa in a men's soccer upset at Laird Q. Cagan Stadium on Saturday night.
Tulsa's Rollie Rocha scored both goals on penalty kicks, in the 32nd and 58th minutes, to hand Stanford (4-1) its' first defeat. The penalties were created by a foul in the box and a handball, in that order, though neither sequence was threatening when the infractions took place.
Stanford outshot the Golden Hurricane, 23-11, and had 10 corners to Tulsa's two. Stanford had one shot off the post and had a goal disallowed by offsides. But Tulsa did a great job of warding off Stanford's attacks, especially in the second half, and never seemed to tire.
Amir Bashti had five shots, one on goal.
Stanford plays the fifth match in a six-match homestand on Friday night against San Francisco, with a Sunday match against Yale to follow.
