UCLA Rolls Over LMU, 4-0 in NCAA 1st Round

Nov. 15, 2002

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - Bruin midfielder Sarah-Gayle Swanson had a pair of goals Friday, as seventh-seeded UCLA shutout Loyola Marymount, 4-0 in the first round of the NCAA Women's Soccer Championships at UCLA's Drake Stadium. The Bruins (17-3) move on to face USC (11-7-3) in Sunday's second round at 1:00 p.m. The Women of Troy defeated San Diego, 1-0 in overtime earlier in the day.

Swanson, who has scored the game-winning goal in UCLA's last three matches, put the Bruins ahead 1-0 just 15th minutes into the match. LMU goalkeeper Elizabeth Skhal came out to challenge UCLA forward Iris Mora, leaving Swanson with an open opportunity to chip the ball into the net.

Following a 1-0 UCLA advantage at the half, Swanson put in her second goal of the night in the 50th minute on a shot from about 10 yards out from the right side. Lindsay Greco was credited with the assist.

Bruin midfielder Whitney Jones scored the Bruins' third goal of the match at the 83:25 mark. Allie True hit a free kick into the LMU box and Jones was able to get a head on it.

Greco capped off the scoring for UCLA in the 86th minute when she received a cross from Kathryn Lee and hit it in from about seven yards out.

The Bruins, winners of their last eight matches, outshot the Lions, 23-6 on the night. Sunday's meeting between UCLA and USC will be the second this year. The Bruins defeated the Women of Troy, 2-0 back on Oct. 27 at USC.

With the loss, LMU ends its season with a 10-7-3 overall record.
