UCLA goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland set a new school record for consecutive shutout minutes by keeping Arizona scoreless for the first 69 minutes of the match. Her shutout streak, however, came to an end in the 70th minute when Arizona's Jazmin Ponce scored on a one-on-one. It was the first goal given up by Rowland all season, ending a school-record consecutive shutout minutes streak at 564. The previous record was 540, set by CiCi Peterson in 2000.

Rowland finished the game with four saves on seven Arizona shots. UCLA totaled nine shots, six on goal.

Bywaters, who had five shots in the game, including four on goal, has had three multiple goal games in the Bruins' last four games and leads UCLA with eight goals and 18 points.

"I am very pleased with getting the result tonight," said UCLA head coach B.J. Snow. "Our possession and movement was good at times, and we can take away a lot of positives from a hard-fought game. We made it difficult on ourselves by not executing in the box and turning the ball over too much in the midfield towards the end of the game. But we will learn from these moments and continue to try to get better every game. I am very happy with the strides this group is making and their overall attitude to want to get better."

UCLA improves its record to 8-0-2 overall and 1-0-1 in the Pac-12. Arizona drops to 5-5-1, 1-1-0 in the Pac-12. The Bruins continue their road trip on Monday, Oct. 1 at Arizona State in a game televised live on Pac-12 Networks at 7pm PT.
