Los Angeles, CA - The No. 14/25 UCLA men's soccer team recorded its fourth shutout of the season, handing visiting UNLV a 3-0 defeat at Frank W. Marshall Field. Senior midfielder Jonathan Bornstein (Los Alamitos, CA) contributed to all three goals, scoring two and assisting on the other.
Bornstein's first goal came at 28:36 when he dribbled through the middle after a throw-in from Sal Zizzo. Bornstein's shot beat UNLV goalie Pete Clitheroe for the 1-0 lead. Bornstein set up the Bruins' second goal at 39:14 when he passed to Evan Corey, who sent a through ball down the right side to Kamani Hill for Hill's second goal of the year. Hill returned the favor at 60:07, passing to Bornstein, who chipped Clitheroe from seven yards out for his fourth goal of the season.
UCLA outshot UNLV 17-5 in the match, including 6-0 in the second half, and could have scored more goals had it not been for a few unfortunate bounces. Both Luke Mehring (10th minute) and Hill (49th minute) hit the post, and Brad Rusin's header after a corner kick hit the crossbar in the 69th minute.
Lamar Neagle had four of UNLV's five shots, three of which were saved by UCLA goalkeeper Eric Reed, who made four saves in 71 minutes of play. Reed and Nate Pena shared the shutout. Clitheroe made seven saves in 72 minutes of action before yielding to Brett Hafeman.
UCLA improves its record to 4-2, while UNLV drops to 2-6. The Bruins open Pac-10 play on Friday, Sept. 30 with a home match against California at 7 pm.
