No. 3 Bruins Register 6-0 Victory over BYU

Sept. 25, 2002

Box Score

Los Angeles - Powered by a pair of goals from Bruin sophomore Kim Devine, the No. 3-ranked UCLA women's soccer team registered its fourth shutout in a row Wednesday, downing BYU, 6-0 in a non-conference match at UCLA's Drake Stadium. With the victory, the Bruins improve to 7-1 on the year, while the Cougars fall to 3-5.

Devine, who actually played her freshman season at BYU in 2001, put the Bruins on the board just 10 minutes into the match. Following a UCLA free kick in front of the Cougar box, Amy Fazio flipped the ball to Whitney Jones who passed it to Devine for a shot from about 12-yards out.

Four minutes later, Fazio netted a goal of her own when, after a UCLA free kick, she ran on to the BYU clearance and blasted in a shot from 25-yards out, catching BYU goalkeeper Mandy Gott off guard. It was Fazio's first career goal.

UCLA added another goal at the 31:24 mark when sophomore Kendal Billingsley intercepted a BYU pass deep in the Cougar backfield. Billingsley gained control of the ball and curled in a shot into the top right corner of the BYU net to give the Bruins a 3-0 lead heading into halftime.

The second half was a mirror image of the first, with UCLA controlling the tempo from the start. Not even five minutes after play resumed, Bruin freshman Iris Mora ran on to a pass from Jones and chipped it over Gott for UCLA's fourth goal of the match.

Devine would add her second goal of the day at the 78:55 mark when she dribbled down the middle of the field, veered to the right and knocked in a shot into left corner of the Cougar net.

Bruin junior Victoria Bloom capped off the scoring for UCLA in the 82nd-minute of play when she headed in a Billingsley cross to give UCLA a 6-0 advantage.

Wednesday marked UCLA's first-ever victory over BYU after falling to the Cougars in the only two previous meetings between the two schools (1997 and 1998). The Bruins, who have not given up a goal since defeating San Francisco, 4-1 back on Sept. 13, outshot the Cougars, 20-2.

Next up for UCLA is an exhibition match with the Mexican National Team this Saturday at Drake Stadium beginning at 2:00 p.m. That match is free to the public.
