Bruins Post Season Opening Victories over Navy and Air Force

Sept. 11, 2004

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado - Just weeks after returning from the 2004 Olympic games, UCLA senior attacker Brett Ormsby threw his collegiate season into gear by leading the Bruins to victories over Navy and Air Force and scoring a combined seven goals.

UCLA, which began its season Friday by notching a 14-4 victory over Navy and a 9-3 win over Air Force, is 2-0 and showing no signs of relinquishing its #3 national ranking.

Against Air Force, the Bruins dominated early in the game, scoring three unanswered goals in the first period. Junior Jeff Donaldson was the first to get on the scoreboard for the Falcons, taking the assist from senior Murphey Morgan to cut the deficit to 3-1. However, UCLA found the net twice more in the first half to go into intermission with a 5-1 lead.

Air Force (1-4) responded well after the break, making several crucial defensive stops in the early minutes of the third period. However, the Falcons were unable to convert their momentum into points, while the Bruins managed to score two more goals within a span of 40 seconds to gain a 7-1 advantage.

The final quarter showed a fierce battle between the two teams, with six drawn ejections, including four against the Bruins. Following the ejection of UCLA senior Brett Ormsby at the 1:56 mark, Bruins head coach Adam Krikorian was given a red card and the Falcons called a timeout,

In the Bruins' season opener against Navy, Ormsby scored five of his six goals in the first two periods, as the Bruins ran their record to 14-0 all-time versus the Midshipmen.

UCLA scored the game's first three goals and never looked back. Patrick Rollo got the Mids on the scoreboard with 4:04 remaining in the opening period. However, the Bruins answered with five-consecutive goals, including four from Ormsby, to go up 8-1.
