Second-Ranked Bruins Drop 12-10 Overtime Heartbreaker To Top-Ranked Stanford

Oct. 26, 2002

Pasadena, CA - After leading 8-6 with 2:48 remaining in regulation, the second-ranked UCLA Bruins fell to top-ranked Stanford 12-10 in overtime in a MPSF match-up at the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center on Saturday. The Bruins drop to 9-6, 1-3 in conference action, while the Cardinal improves to 18-2, 5-1 in MPSF play.

UCLA took a two-goal lead on Peter Belden's second score of the match with 2:48 remaining. The Cardinal rebounded behind with three goals, including two Tony Azevedo scores in slightly over a minute to take a 9-8 lead. UCLA responded when Ted Peck found the back of the net with 0:57 left in the match to send it into overtime.

The Cardinal scored first in the overtime when Mike Derse notched his third goal of the game only 23 seconds into the period. Derse struck again with an extra-man goal with 35 second left in the first overtime period, to give Stanford an 11-9 advantage.

UCLA would not quit, with Josh Hewko bringing the Bruins within one goal with 1:25 left. However, after a Nick Pacelli penalty, Stanford recorded its final goal of the match on an Azevedo four-meter shot to give the Cardinal a 12-10 victory.

Belden, Peck, Dan Yeilding, and Brett Ormsby all scored twice for UCLA, while Albert Garcia and Josh Hewko rounded out the Bruin attack.

Derse led all scorers with four goals, while Azevedo and Jeff Nesmith both recorded a hat trick. Peter Hudnut and Jeff Guyman both added a goal for the Cardinal.

UCLA returns to action next Saturday with a MPSF match against UC Irvine at 12 p.m. at Sunset Canyon Recreation Center.
