UCLA beat Kentucky 3-0 to advance. UCLA outshot Kentucky 20-5, but had only a goal in the 5th minute from Caprice Dydasco through the first 70 minutes. Courtney Proctor scored in the 71st minute to increase the margin, and Dydasco scored her 2nd goal in the 81st minute to seal the victory.
UCLA plays Stanford on Sunday at 4pm. The Bruins beat Stanford in Palo Alto 2-1 in double overtime in their regular season conference match-up earlier this season. Stanford is an old nemesis, having knocked UCLA out of the tourney last year in Palo Alto.
But having beaten Stanford in Palo Alto this year already, and having this game at Drake, the Bruins are hopefully poised for bigger and better things this time around.
Go Bruins !!
