It took 103 minutes to determine the winner in the 2017 DI Men’s Soccer Championship between No. 2 Indiana and No. 3 Stanford. As the two sides approached nearly two hours of scoreless play, Stanford midfielder Sam Werner placed the game-winning shot over the head of Indiana keeper Trey Muse, giving the Cardinal their third consecutive national title.
They are the first time since Virginia (1991-1994) to win at least three straight national championships.
Stanford’s game-winner was set up off of a throw-in, as Corey Baird crossed the ball in Indiana’s box, Werner stole the ball from Indiana’s Griffin Dorsey and fired a shot between two defenders and into the back of the net. It was just the seventh goal Indiana allowed all season.
Stanford made history this year as both the Cardinal’s men’s and women’s soccer teams won the national championship, something no school has ever accomplished in NCAA DI history.
