Los Angeles, Calif. - Junior forward Chandler Hoffman continued his scoring spree this season by notching two second half goals to lead the No. 9/10 UCLA men's soccer team to a 2-0 victory over No. 22/24 San Diego State.

The Bruins have now won eight straight matches against Pac-12 opponents dating back to last year and with the win, improved to 10-3-1 on the season and 5-0 in Pac-12 play. Meanwhile, San Diego State dropped to 8-3-2 and 3-2 in the conference with the loss. UCLA currently has a six point advantage over the Aztecs for first place in the Pac-12 conference.

Neither side was able to find the back of the net in the first half, but Hoffman changed all that in the second when in the 63rd minute, he took a long ball at the top of the box from Kelyn Rowe and put a shot past Aztec keeper Blake Hylen to the far post to score his 10th goal of the season and put UCLA on top 1-0. Chandler wasn't done scoring though, as he added an insurance goal in the 83rd minute after receiving a pass from Victor Munoz in the box and converting it after his shot was redirected off a defender's back and into the goal. Hoffman leads the team with 11 goals and 24 points on the year and now has a staggering 17 goals in his last 20 games for UCLA.

Overall, San Diego State outshot the Bruins 10-9 while goalkeeper Brian Rowe made five saves on the night to earn his fifth straight win and his fourth shutout of the year.

UCLA will be back out on the field on Saturday, Oct. 22, as they take on the Cal State Northridge Matadors in a non-conference matchup at 7 pm out at Drake Stadium.
