Nov. 13, 2005

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - The top-seeded UCLA women's soccer team (19-1-2) tied two single-season school records Sunday en route to a 3-0 victory over Colorado in an NCAA Second Round showdown at UCLA's Drake Stadium. The Bruins, who advance to the third round for the seventh-consecutive year, will meet fourth-seeded Marquette next Saturday at 6:00 p.m. That match will also be at Drake Stadium.

UCLA tied single-season school records for consecutive games unbeaten (17) and shutouts (15). The Bruins will tie the school record for single-season wins (20) with a victory in their next match.

UCLA, which defeated Colorado, 2-0 earlier in the year, jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the 11th minute on Iris Mora's ninth goal of the season. Freshman McCall Zerboni chipped a ball behind the Colorado defense and Mora was able to run onto it, beating goalkeeper Kirstin Radlinski to the ball, before punching it in from seven yards out.

The Buffaloes had a chance to tie the match in the 30th minute when a shot from Alexis Cousins dribbled past UCLA goalkeeper Valerie Henderson. Defender Mary Castelanelli was covering, however, as she slid to clear the ball off the line just before it went into the net.

The Bruins took a 2-0 lead moments later when a Colorado foul resulted in a free kick from about 22 yards out. Freshman forward Kara Lang stepped up and drilled a low-lying ball into the left corner of the net, her 12th of the season. The official time of the goal was 31:06.

Colorado had another chance to get on the board in the 56th minute after receiving a penalty kick following a UCLA foul in the box. Buffalo midfielder Fran Munnelly took the kick, however it was stopped by Henderson, who finished with a match-high six saves on the day.

The Bruins scored their final goal of the match in the 63rd minute on another goal by Lang, who sent in a right-footed shot from eight yards out on the right side. It was Lang's fourth multiple goal game of the season. She also had two in the Bruins' first-round win over Mississippi Valley State on Friday.

UCLA out-shot Colorado, 14-7 on the afternoon.
