In the final home match of the regular season, the Arizona State women’s soccer team played No. 5 Stanford (11-2-3, 2-1-2 Pac-10) to a scoreless tie in double overtime Sunday.

The Devils are 3-2-1 in the Pac-10, and 9-7-1 overall.

Without either team scoring during regulation, the game went into a pair of extra 10-minute periods. ASU had several opportunities in both overtime sessions, but was unable to score.

Sun Devils sophomore goalkeeper Briana Silvestri had three saves in the match, which was the final home game for ASU seniors Courtney Crane, Kyleyn Felts, Lara Kezer, Lauren Niblett and Alissa Oldenkamp

The Sun Devils travel to Los Angeles to face top-ranked UCLA at 7 p.m. Friday.


• The Arizona State team is seeking help in raising money for Body Positive, a nonprofit HIV and AIDS research and resource center.

During the Sun Devils’ Nov. 9 fall games at Farrington Stadium — starting at 3 p.m. vs. Central Arizona College and at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. vs. Mesa Community College — the team will be accepting donations to help the organization.

All the money collected will go directly to Camp Incredible, a program run by Body Positive. The camp allows parents and children affected by HIV to be themselves without having to worry about their medical status.


• Chandler Valley Christian played deep into the night Saturday to claim the title in the 2A Central Region tournament.

The host Trojans (35-11) needed five sets to beat Glendale Northwest Christian, rallying from a 2-1 hole to win 25-23, 25-27, 18-25, 25-17, 15-8. The win gave the Trojans the top seed from the region heading into the 2A state tournament, which opens Friday.

In the championship match, Valley Christian’s one-two punch of Alaina Bergsma and Chanel Brown were too much for the Crusaders, the only Central Region team to beat the Trojans this season.

Bergsma finished with 26 kills and Brown had 25. In a 3-0 semifinal win earlier Saturday over Tucson Pusch Ridge (25-17, 25-6, 26-24), Bergsma had 23 kills and Brown had 18.
