The San Francisco State women’s soccer team is making a habit of pitching shutouts. The Gators (7-8-2, 5-5-2 California Collegiate Athletic Association) kept their opponents scoreless for the fourth time in six matches, beating Sonoma State 3-0. Myriah Johnson, Zoila Marquez and Sarah Reubel all scored for S.F. State.

Nalbandian shocks Federer in Madrid
