Nov. 12, 2004

Box Score

Los Angeles - The UCLA women's soccer team advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament Friday evening, posting a 1-0 victory over Pepperdine (9-7-3) at Drake Stadium on the campus of UCLA. With the victory, UCLA (14-6) advances to Sunday's second round and will take on San Diego (12-7-2) at 1:00 p.m. The Toreros posted a 1-0 overtime victory over UNLV in the late match Friday.

Bruin forward Iris Mora scored the only goal of the match at the 80:52 mark. Sophomore Bristyn Davis hit a ball to Mora, who was making a run down the left side of the field. Mora was able to draw out Pepperdine goalkeeper Anna Picarelli and chip the ball over her head and into the goal.

UCLA outshot the Waves, 18-8 on the night. Bruin keeper Valerie Henderson made five saves in the game and earned the shutout. Picarelli had eight saves.

It marks the third time in the last four years that UCLA has knocked Pepperdine out of the NCAA Tournament, as, in addition to tonight, the Bruins defeated the Waves in the second round in 2001 and 2003.

UCLA has played San Diego once already this season, defeating the Toreros, 4-0 in the season opener for both teams back on Aug. 27.
