Los Angeles, Calif. - In a battle between two unbeatens, No. 1 UCLA shut out No. 20 Tennessee, 1-0, in front of 1,454 at UCLA's Drake Stadium on Sunday afternoon. UCLA sophomore Rosie White scored the game's lone goal, breaking a scoreless tie in the 54th minute.

White recorded her second goal of the season at the 53:24 mark thanks to a cross by Zakiya Bywaters. After receiving a pass from Taylor Smith, Bywaters raced down the left sideline and sent in a perfect cross to White. Tennessee goalkeeper Julie Eckel made an attempt to intercept the cross but missed, leaving the net open for White to tally her second goal in three games.

The crossbar played a bit of a role in the contest, as Tennessee's Hannah Wilkinson hit the crossbar in the 69th minute, and Bywaters had a shot blocked by a Tennessee defender off the crossbar. Eckel, however, was able to pounce on the rebound of Bywaters' shot to prevent UCLA from scoring an insurance goal.

UCLA's defense was stifling, allowing just four shots in the contest, including only one in the first half. The Bruins were more effective with their shot total, totalking 12 shots, five of which were on goal. Eckel made four saves in the game, while UCLA goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland increased her shutout streak to 468 minutes and made one save.

Bruin head coach B.J. Snow was pleased with his team's effort.

"Tennessee is a great team, and the second game of a weekend series is always difficult," he said. "We knew we would get a tremendous effort out of an undefeated, ranked team, and I think our girls handled themselves as well as we've played all year long."

The Bruins (5-0-1) will host the UCLA Soccer Classic next weekend, taking on Princeton on Sept. 14 and Pepperdine on Sept. 16. Also participating in the tournament is UC Irvine. Tennessee (5-1-1) drops its first game of the season.
