The SMU mens soccer team got an impressive win on the west coast as they shut out Stanford 2-0 tonight.  Last weekend SMU won two impressive games on the east coast over Old Dominion and Virginia.  Next up is #13 California.

Senior forward Paulo da Silva scored his second goal of the season and junior goalkeeper Craig Hill notched his second shutout of the year Friday as the SMU men's soccer team shut out perennial power Stanford, 2-0, in the first round of the Cal Legacy Classic.   The Mustangs, who are ranked #8 in the nation in the current Soccermogul Top 30 poll, now take on the host Cal Bears who are coached by former All-America SMU defender Kevin Grimes, Sunday afternoon.

SMU jumped on the board early with two goals in the first 5 minutes of play and cruised to victory.  The Mustangs, who outshot the Cardinal, 10-6, took advantage of a pair of Stanford miscues to get on the scoreboard early. Stanford gave SMU a 1-0 lead in the second minute of the game on an own goal, and then in the fourth minute, a Stanford foul gave SMU a penalty kick, which Paulo da Silva converted to provide the final margin.

Sunday's game against Cal pits two undefeated teams against each other. Like SMU, Cal improved to 3-0-0 Friday with a 5-0 dismantling of Cornell. The Bears, which already have beaten #3 Maryland this season, have outscored their opponents, 9-1, so far and should be a good test for SMU.
