CHAMPIONS! Women's Soccer Wins 110th NCAA Title for UCLA!

It took more than 90 minutes to settle the score, but it took only one moment of sheer class by Kodi Lavrusky to win it for UCLA with a golden goal in overtime, all to bring home the 110th NCAA national championship for UCLA and the first national title in the women's soccer program's history.

It was a strong defensive performance by both squads, with the scores leveled at 0-0 at the end of regulation, and in any game that runs into OT, the Bruins have been able to find a way to win, especially with Katelyn Rowland doing her best Edwin van der Sar impression in goal.  Florida State's Icelandic forwards were the only threat to the Bruins, but the reliable back-four put in an excellent shift to keep the Seminoles quiet, with LB Caprice Dydasco providing a real attacking threat overlapping on the left wing.  Rosie White, who clinched the semi-final win over Virginia with the last converted PK, kept threatening in front of the Seminole goal but couldn't find a way through. Sam Mewis once again had a fantastic game in the center of the park, but it was junior defender Megan Oyster who put a delicious ball through to find Kodi Lavrusky and the sophomore with #10 on her back played like she deserved the coveted number, slotting home the game-winning golden goal to win it for the Bruins in the 96th minute.

This is your post-game victory thread.  Congratulations to an outstanding performance by the Lady Bruins and head coach Amanda Cromwell.  Let's welcome home NCAA national title #110 home to Westwood in style.
