LOS ANGELES - A goal in the 82nd minute by Bruin midfielder Christina DiMartino broke a scoreless tie, helping the top-ranked UCLA women's soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Oregon State on Friday evening at Drake Stadium. With the win, the Bruins move to 8-1-2 overall and 1-0 in the Pac-10. The Beavers fall to 7-4-1 and 0-1 in conference action.

DiMartino's goal came at the 81:02 mark when she found some space at the top right corner of the OSU box. After receiving the ball to junior Caitlyn Mac Kechnie, DiMartino took a dribble and nailed a ball to the far post, beating OSU goalkeeper Caitlin Seeley. It marks DiMartino's fourth goal of the season. Mac Kechnie also moved into the team lead in assists with six.

Bruin goalkeeper Valerie Henderson broke the school record for career shutouts on Friday, posting the 32nd of her career. Lindsay Culp, who played at UCLA from 1996-99, was the career leader heading into the season with 31.
