UCLA Men’s Soccer Thinking Revenge Against Stanford

Last Sunday, the Cardinal beat the Bruins 3-0 with three second half goals.


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.
