Women's Soccer

It took 77 minutes, but the #3 Bruins were able to finally find the net and go ahead of #17 Cal last Friday in Berkeley. Sydney Leroux's goal proved to be enough for UCLA as they topped the Bears 1-0, stretching UCLA's win streak to 12. That set the Bruins up for a colossal matchup at top-ranked Stanford. This time, the Bruins were the ones who were beaten after the 70th minute when a pair of late Stanford goals were the difference in the Cardinal's 2-0 win over the Bruins. It was UCLA's first conference loss since 2006. Now 12-2-1, UCLA will welcome Oregon and Oregon St. to Drake Stadium this weekend.

#2 UCLA finished right where their ranking would indicate they finish, second. #3 Arizona St. won the Stanford Intercollegiate with a score of -12, while the Bruins came in at -8, 18 shots ahead of third place. The NCAA Fall Preview in Wilmington, North Carolina is up next for UCLA, beginning this Friday.

Men's Soccer

#4 UCLA had a pair of huge home matches last week with two top 20 teams visiting Drake Stadium, providing the Bruins a chance to take control of the Pac-10. The week began on Friday with #10 Cal in Westwood, but luckily for the Bruins, goalkeeper Brian Perk, who was hospitalized the week before after being kicked in the face, was back between the sticks. Perk made three saves for the Bruins, while the UCLA attackers put nine on goal, one of which beat the Cal goalkeeper and provided the difference in UCLA's 1-0 win. With one win in the books, the Bruins set course for another on Sunday when they faced off against #18 Stanford and it was a bit of young and old that led them. While Perk pitched his second clean sheet of the week, UCLA got a goal from a freshman, Chandler Hoffman, and a senior, Sean Alvarado, as they prevailed, 2-0, over the Cardinal. At 8-1-2 overall, the Bruins are in fine shape heading towards the regular season's homestretch. They also are in fine shape in the Pac-10, where their 3-0-2 record is good for 11 points, four points ahead of second-place Stanford. Unbeaten in their last nine, UCLA will return the trips to Cal and Stanford this weekend.

Men's Water Polo

One goal games continue to plague the #4 Bruins as they dropped their third consecutive match by a goal on Friday versus #2 Cal. Before a capacity crowd at the Spieker Aquatics Center, UCLA was beaten by the Bears, 7-6, despite a late attempt by the Bruins to erase a three goal deficit. 12-5 overall and 0-2 in the MPSF, UCLA has a busy schedule this week with two matches on the road (at #6 LMU and at #9 UC Irvine), then a doubleheader at home with Chapman and #12 Pacific visiting the Bruins on Sunday.

Women's Volleyball

#4 Washington proved to be too much for #12 UCLA as the Huskies needed only four sets to dispose of the Bruins on Friday in Seattle. The Bruins were able to improve to 14-6 overall and 4-3 in the Pac-10 on Saturday though with a three set sweep of Washington St. in Pullman. A pair of home matches versus Oregon and Oregon St. this weekend could provide the Bruins with their first perfect week since September 10-13.

Men's Golf

A fourth-place finish was the best the #15 Bruins could muster at The Prestige at PGA West last week as they shot +5 for the 54 holes. Freshman Pedro Figueiredo from Portugal led the Bruins with a second place overall finish. UCLA will not return to competition until early November in a tournament they will host.

Men's Volleyball

At the Husky Dino Cup, a preseason tournament in Calgary, Canada, the Bruins split their first two matches, swept their semifinal in three sets and then lost their championship match.

Cross Country

The men's team split last week, with half finishing 23rd at the Pre-National Invitational in Terre Haute, Indiana and the other half finishing third at the Cal Poly Invitational, while the women's team was victorious at the Cal Poly Invitational. Both teams are off until the Pac-10 Championships in two weeks. Two recent Bruin graduates made noise last week at the Chicago Marathon as brothers Kyle and Drew Shackleton finished fourth and fifth amongst American runners with times that qualified them for the US Olympic Trials in the marathon. The two also raised $22,000 for Parkinson's research.

Men's Tennis

Amit Inbar continued to play strong tennis as he advanced to the quarterfinals at the ITA West/South Regionals. The tournament continues this week.

Women's Rowing

UCLA will compete in the Head of the American in Rancho Cordova this weekend.

Women's Swim and Dive

The Bruins' season begins on Saturday in Santa Barbara versus Oregon St. and UCSB.
