No. 9 UCLA Edges No. 24 Pepperdine, 1-0

Sept. 25, 2004

Box Score

LOS ANGELES - The ninth-ranked UCLA women's soccer team was pushed to the limit but managed to pull out a 1-0 victory over No. 24 Pepperdine Friday evening at UCLA's Drake Stadium. With the win, the Bruins improve to 6-2 on the season. The Waves fall to 5-2-1.

Following a scoreless first half, the Bruins scored the only goal of the match just minutes after play resumed. At the 49:25 mark, Bruin sophomore Bristyn Davis slipped a through ball to Kim Devine, who ran onto it and flicked it past Pepperdine goalkeeper Anna Picarelli. It was Devine's fourth goal of the season.

Although the Bruins were able to keep the Waves scoreless the rest of the way, Pepperdine had a pair of chances to tie the match, both from forward Megan Woods. On one occasion, Woods got in behind the UCLA defense and had an open breakaway, however Bruin goalkeeper Valerie Henderson came charging out to make a great play and deny her a clear shot. Not long after, Woods had an open shot just inside the top of the box, but ended up pushing it wide right.

Friday's match was fairly even, with both teams each taking seven shots. Devine and Davis each had three shots for UCLA, while Woods led Pepperdine with three of her own. The Bruins improve their all-time record against Pepperdine to 7-2, having won the last seven meetings.

UCLA's next match will be at home against Utah on Oct. 1 at 6:00 p.m.
