Box Score

Knoxville, Tenn. - The No. 15 UCLA women's soccer team pulled off an upset in the final day of play at the 2011 Lady Vol Classic on Sunday, registering a 2-0 victory over eighth-ranked Florida at Tennessee's Regal Soccer Stadium.

UCLA's Sydney Leroux was named tournament MVP. She was joined on the all-tournament team by freshmen Samantha Mewis, Ally Courtnall and Abby Dahlkemper.

Courtnall scored the only goal of the first half on Sunday, taking a through ball from fellow freshman Kylie McCarthy before finishing from about 15 yards out in the 35th minute. It marked Courtnall's first collegiate goal.

Leroux, who has now scored in all three wins this season, added an insurance goal for the Bruins in the 72nd minute after freshman Sarah Killion intercepted a poor defensive clearance by the Gators. Killion fed Leroux, who finished from close range to give UCLA a 2-0 lead.

UCLA out-shot Florida, 19-15 on the day. Freshman goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland picked up her second win of the weekend, as she is now 2-0 on the season.

Next up for the Bruins is a 3:00 p.m. showdown with Pepperdine on Friday in Malibu. UCLA will then host its 2011 home opener against Rutgers on Sunday at 7:00 p.m.
