Fifth-Ranked Bruins to Open Home Schedule with UC Irvine

Sept. 22, 2003

BRUINS CLAIM SEVENTH-PLACE AT SO CAL TOURNAMENT: Sophomore center defender David Pietsch scored the game-winning goal with 3:49 remaining in the game while UCLA (3-3) shut out Loyola Marymount in the final period to claim seventh-place at the So Cal Tournament with a 5-4 win over the Lions at UC Irvine last weekend.

The Bruins opened the tournament with a commanding 13-6 victory over Cal Baptist in which 10 different Bruins scored. Brett Ormsby, Logan Powell, and Grant Zider each scored twice for UCLA while David Shortenhaus recorded his first collegiate goal. Later in the day the Bruins fell to Pepperdine, 9-6, despite a hat trick from Ormsby and 11 saves from goalkeeper Joe Axelrad.

In the 7:00 a.m. match on Sunday, UCLA dropped a 9-5 contest to eighth-ranked Long Beach State. 49er goalkeeper Thomas Onyshko posted 16 saves against the Bruins, while Ormsby once again led UCLA with two goals. Ormsby was the Bruins' leading scorer over the weekend with 11 goals over the four games.

UC SAN DIEGO: UCLA will travel to La Jolla on Friday evening to face-off with sixth-ranked UC San Diego (7-3) in a 6:00 p.m. contest. Last weekend, the Tritons took home fifth-place at the So Cal Tournament with a 11-10 win over Long Beach State. UC San Diego also claimed victories over Loyola Marymount and UC Santa Barbara, with its only loss coming at the hands of Stanford. Jonathan Hopkins posted eight goals over the course of four matches for UCSD, including five in the fifth-place game.

UC IRVINE: The Bruins will open their home schedule this weekend, when they host seventh-ranked UC Irvine (5-5) in a 12:00 p.m. match-up at Sunset Canyon Recreation Center on Sunday. The Anteaters placed ninth at the So Cal Tournament, which they hosted last weekend, with a 9-7 win over UC Santa Barbara in the ninth-place game. Despite a tough opening day with one-goal losses to Long Beach State (8-7) and eventual champion USC (10-9), the Anteaters bounced back with victories over Cal Baptist and the Gauchos on Sunday. Phil Garcia led UCI with 11 goals in the tournament, while Dan Noon posted nine.

BRUINS IN THE POLL: The Bruins dropped one spot from fourth to fifth in last week's Collegiate Coaches Water Polo Poll. The poll is released every Wednesday during the season and can be found at www.collegiatewaterpolo.org.
