Men's Soccer Downs Loyola Marymount, 4-0

Sept. 11, 2005

Los Angeles, Calif. - The UCLA men's soccer team, ranked No. 15 by the NSCAA and No. 7 by Soccer America, defeated its second consecutive opponent by a score of 4-0, downing Loyola Marymount at LMU's Sullivan Field with four unanswered goals Sunday afternoon. Four different players scored for UCLA, as Kamani Hill, Patrick Ianni, Mike Zaher and Damon James each notched their first goals of the season.

The Bruins jumped ahead early, taking a 1-0 lead at 6:15 when Brandon Owens took a pass from goalkeeper Eric Reed and lofted a long ball down the right side to Hill. Hill beat LMU keeper Robert Flores to give the Bruins the advantage.

With less than a minute to play in the half, Bruin forward Richard Flores was taken down in the box to earn a penalty kick. Ianni converted the PK at 44:08 for his first career goal and a 2-0 UCLA advantage.

LMU had a chance to score just prior to the penalty kick, but Armando Melendez was unable to connect on a perfectly-placed cross by Stephen Carlson in the box.

The Bruins put the game out of reach in the second half when Zaher recorded his first career goal at 61:41, scoring on a give-and-go from Maxwell Griffin. James became another first-time scorer at 80:58, netting a shot from 10 yards out on the left side after a cross from Hill.

Reed earned his second-straight shutout, making six saves, including two spectactular diving stops in the second half.

The Bruins (2-1-0) will next face Penn State in a nationally-televised match on Friday, Sept. 16. Fox Soccer Channel will televise the game live at 8 pm ET. Loyola Marymount (1-2-0) will face Tulsa on Sept. 16.
