Los Angeles, Calif. - Senior captain Andy Rose scored a golden goal in the very first minute of overtime to give the UCLA Bruins a 1-0 victory over the California Golden Bears in the Pac-12 conference opener on Friday night.
UCLA now improves to 6-3-1 on the year and 1-0-0 in Pac-12 play while the Bears fall to 3-3-2 on the season and 0-1-0 in the conference.
The teams were scoreless for the first 90 minutes of play with the Bruins outshooting the Bears 16-6 in regulation. Then in the 91st minute, Kelyn Rowe played the ball short off of a corner kick to Victor Munoz, who passed to Shawn Singh on the left edge of the box. Singh sent a cross into the box that got through all the way to the far post, where Rose played the ball to his feet and put the game-winner past Cal keeper Kevin Peach. It was Singh's fourth assist on the year and Rose's first goal of the year. It was also the first golden goal of Andy's career.
Bruin goalkeeper Brian Rowe made two saves on the night to earn the shutout while Peach made four saves in the loss.
UCLA's next match will be against the Stanford Cardinal (3-5-1, 0-1-0) on Sunday, Oct. 2 at 3:00 pm out at Drake Stadium. Prior to the game is UCLA's annual alumni game, which will take place at the North Athletic Field at 11:00 am.
