Men's Soccer Ranks High in Polls
By: UCLA Athletics

October 13, 1998

The second-ranked UCLA men's soccer team and several team members rank among the nation's best in the Division I National Statistics. UCLA's defense ranks first in team defense and in shutouts per game, and its goalkeeper Nick Rimando ranks first in goals against average.

UCLA's all-around game has proven its worth of a No. 2 ranking. The Bruin defense ranks first in the nation, having given up just three goals in 10 games (0.292 goals against average), while its offense ranks third with a scoring average of 3.10 goals per game. Only two other teams in the nation rank in the Top 10 in both offense and defense (Connecticut - No. 5 offense and No. 7 defense; Clemson - No. 1 offense and No. 9 defense), but no team ranks in the Top 3 in both categories.

UCLA, with eight shutouts in 10 games, ranks tied for first in shutouts per game (.800). Rimando, a sophomore from Montclair, tops the goalkeeper list (0.33). He has given up just three goals in 10 games. In his first season as a full-time starter, Rimando has recorded five solo and three shared shutouts.

Senior forward Seth George (Mission Viejo, Calif.) ranks 11th in points per game (2.30, 23 points in 10 games) and tied for 19th in assists per game (0.70, seven assists). Teammate Sasha Victorine, a junior midfielder from Corona, Calif. is tied for 10th in assists per game (0.78, seven assists in nine games). George and Victorine are among 12 other players who have scored the most assists in a game (three).
