After the UCLA Women’s Soccer team plays Washington State this afternoon, the UCLA Men’s Soccer team will take to the pitch looking to avenge last Sunday’s 3-0 loss to Stanford.
On Thursday, Stanford tied San Diego State 1-1 after beating them 3-1 last Thursday in Palo Alto. It was Stanford’s first non-victory in conference play after winning their first five games.
The Bruins probably would have preferred a tie when they played UC Berkeley on Thursday night at Drake. UCLA had a 1-0 lead in that game before giving up 2 late goals to the Golden Bears and losing 2-1.
That’s 5 second half goals UCLA has given up in its past two games which were both losses and 8 in their past three games. In each of these the goalkeeper has been freshman Kevin Silva.
Considering that Silva has given up 8 goals in the past three games and redshirt senior Juan Cervantes has allowed 9 goals in a total of eight games, perhaps Coach Jorge Salcedo needs to rethink having Silva in goal for today’s game.
