LOS ANGELES - The third-ranked UCLA women's soccer team overcame a slow start against Wisconsin-Milwaukee, scoring four second-half goals in a 4-0 victory Friday at the Loyola Marymount Soccer Tournament. With the victory, UCLA improves to 3-0-2 on the season. Wisconsin-Milwaukee drops to 0-4-1.
Following a scoreless first half, the Bruins came out strong in the second, scoring just a little over nine minutes in. Bruin junior Kendal Billingsley put UCLA on the board in the 54th minute with a long shot from about 20 yards out. Billingsley hit a high ball that Wisconsin-Milwaukee goalkeeper Kerri St. Aubin was able to get a finger on, however the ball bounced off the right sidebar and into the goal.
Bruin senior Whitney Jones then got in on the scoring at the 61:26 mark. Bruin freshman Stephanie Kron hit a corner into the box that was batted around until Iris Mora got a toe on it and pushed it to Jones who put it in from about five yards out.
UCLA continued to pressure Wisconsin-Milwaukee, scoring its third goal of the match about six minutes later. Freshman Bristyn Davis registered the first goal of her UCLA career at the 67:57 mark when she received a cross from the left side compliments of Mora. Davis put away the shot, giving Mora her second assist of the match.
Sophomore Stacy Lindstrom capped the scoring for UCLA in the 79th minute, putting away a header off a corner kick from Kron.
The Bruins outshot the Panthers, 26-2, receiving a match-high five from Sarah Gayle Swanson. Junior Sarah Lombardo started the match for UCLA in goal, recording 68 scoreless minutes. Freshman Arianna Criscione came in and played 22 minutes in relief.
