Bruins Down Huskies, 1-0 in Pac-12 Opener

Sept. 23, 2011

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - A 79th minute goal by sophomore Chelsea Stewart lifted the No. 2 UCLA women's soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Washington on Friday evening before 2,350 fans at Drake Stadium. It marked the Pac-12 opener for both teams, as the Bruins improve to 8-0-1 overall and 1-0 in conference play. The Huskies see their record drop to 3-4-2 overall and 0-1 in the Pac-12.

UCLA dominated play for much of the evening, owning a 16-1 advantage in the final shot count. The Bruins, however, were unable to find the back of the net for much of the match. The turning point came late in the second half when a Washington foul gave UCLA a free kick deep in Husky territory on the right side of the field. Stewart took the kick, sending a low-liner into the box that made it past several Husky defenders, including goalkeeper Jorde LaFontaine-Kussmann. It marked Stewart's first goal of the year.

The Bruin back line was outstanding on the evening, holding the Huskies to just one shot, including none in the second half. Bruin goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland played the entire 90 minutes in goal for UCLA.

With the win, the Bruins improve to 14-3-1 all-time against Washington. UCLA is also 8-2-1 at home against the Huskies.

UCLA does not have another match until next Friday's Pac-12 clash with Oregon at Drake Stadium. That match is scheduled to start at 5:00 p.m.
