Men's Soccer- 2008 Pac 10 Champions!

The 2008 UCLA Bruins men's soccer team are heading to the NCAA tournament as champions of the Pac 10. If you haven't been paying attention the past few weeks, these conference champions are the same team that was 2-3-4 as conference play began. How did the Bruins turn it around? Well, by going 6-1-2 in their first nine conference matches to wrap the title up with 2 weeks of matches left to play.

In the past few weeks the Bruins have found a dependable scorer in Maxwell Griffin, who notched two more goals on Sunday in the championship clinching win over Stanford. They've also managed to piece together not only an adequate defense, but a superb one. The Bruins have not surrendered a goal in their past six games as the defense has proved stingy in front of goalkeeper Brian Perk.

If the Bruins can close out the season with two more wins this week they could earn themselves a first round bye in the NCAA tournament and the right to host a game or two. Congrats to the Bruins and hopefully they can keep this run of theirs going through the NCAA title game on December 14.
