Men's Water Polo

There's no better way to open a new facility than with a win and that's exactly what #2 UCLA did by dispatching #7 UC Irvine, 10-4, in the first official match at the Spieker Aquatics Center. Three different Bruins has two goals in the game and Chay Lapin made eight saves as the Bruins improved to 9-1, their sole loss against the #1 Stanford team that they will play at 10:30 am on Saturday. The match is in Palo Alto so if you're going up for the football game, get there early and check out some water polo first. Stanford's aquatics center is not far at all from the football stadium. The Bruins will also play #10 Santa Clara on Sunday.

Women's Soccer

A six game win streak is often accompanied by a move up the rankings and that's what happened as the Bruins jumped to #3 last week. The girls then won two more matches last week to extend their streak to eight games. It's been the same faces scoring for the Bruins, but I don't think they will complain. In their first win of the week, Kristina Larsen scored her seventh goal of the year and Lauren Cheney her fifth to top Cal St. Northridge, 2-0. The Bruins' second game of the week was a 3-1 win over UC Santa Barbara as Sydney Leroux notched her ninth and tenth goals of the year, which leads the team. This week, the Bruins (8-1-1) will conclude non-conference action when they head up PCH to take on Pepperdine.

Men's Soccer

The #10 Bruins got off to an uninspired start versus UNLV at Drake Stadium, but a pair of goals by Kyle Nakazawa highlighted a strong second half that lifted the Bruins to a 3-0 victory. Nakazawa's two goals give s him four on the year to lead the team and Chandler Hoffman, the freshman who scored the Bruins' third, sits in second on the team with three. Now 5-1, UCLA will commence Pac-10 play with trips to Oregon St. and Washington this weekend.

Women's Volleyball

So who are these girls? Are they a national title contender or a pretender? I think it depends on the day. The #14 Bruins got off to an ominous start to conference play as they were swept by Arizona St. for the first time in 14 years by a score of 25-16, 25-22 and 25-22. Following the bus ride from Tempe to Tucson though, the Bruins defeated #19 Arizona in four sets after losing the opening frame. This Bruin squad, which defeated #6 Nebraska earlier in the year to end the Cornhuskers' 90 match home win streak, but only 11-4 overall and 1-1 in Pac-10 play returns home this week for matches versus #10 Stanford and #12 Cal.

Women's Golf

#3 UCLA found themselves in second-place after two rounds of the Mason Rudolph Invitational, hosted by Vanderbilt. Then the rains came and wiped out the rest of the tournament as the Bruins were forced to settle for second, behind #2 USC. Individually, Sydnee Michaels led the Bruins with a second place finish at -9 thanks to a second round of -7, which was the best of the day and her best collegiate round. The Bruins are off until October 16 when they head to Palo Alto.
