Jordan Morris lifts Stanford in OT; Temple stays unbeaten
Jordan Morris scored in the last minute of the first overtime period to lead No. 4 Stanford to a 1-0 win over Davidson on Sunday night.
It was the second game-winning goal of the season and fourth overall for the junior forward who will be representing the U.S. in Olympic qualifying next month.

After a disappointing 2014 campaign, the 23rd-ranked Temple Owls have become the toast of their city and state with wins now over Penn State, Villanova and Penn.

After a hat trick on Sunday night at Penn, he’s now second in the nation in scoring with 10 goals and has the most goals scored by an Owl in a season since 2003.
The 3-0 win over the Quakers was the fifth straight for Temple, which at 6-0-1 are now off to the program’s best start since 1985 when the team won 13 consecutive games and went to the NCAA tournament.
