The 11th-ranked UCLA men’s soccer team welcomes the University of Nebraska Omaha Mavericks to Wallis Annenberg Stadium for a tilt this evening.

The Bruins have started the season 3-1-0 and are coming off of a nail-biting 1-0 victory over the Maryland Terrapins. The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but was postponed until Saturday due to inclement weather.

Striker Mohammed Kamara scored his fourth goal of the season when he headed in the only goal of the game off of a beautiful cross from Erik Holt in the 51st minute.

Freshman goalkeeper Justin Graces had one save while posting his first career shutout.

Considering that UCLA has only allowed one goal so far this season, goals should be hard to come by for Omaha. The Mavericks come to Westwood with a 1-3 record. They picked up their first win of the season on Friday with a 2-0 win against Utah Valley at home after being shutout in each of their first three games.

Considering how the Mavericks have played, a UCLA win seems pretty likely and this one could get ugly. The Bruins are loaded with talent and to say that this should be a comfortable victory for the Bruins at home is probably an understatement.
