Chandler Hoffman Named to National Teams of the Week

Oct. 17, 2011

Los Angeles, Calif. - Junior forward Chandler Hoffman has been named to the Top Drawer Soccer and College Soccer News National Teams of the Week for the week of Oct. 10-16, as announced by the publications today.

The Birmingham Ala. native scored two second half goals to lead the Bruins to a big 2-0 victory over San Diego State. He first scored in the 69th minute off of a nice long ball from Kelyn Rowe to give the Bruins a 1-0 lead. Hoffman then found the back of the net just 14 minutes later, when he took a cross from Victor Munoz and took a shot that deflected off of an Aztec defender and into the goal. Chandler leads the team and the Pac-12 conference with 11 goals and 24 points on the year and now has a staggering 17 goals in his last 20 games for UCLA.

This is the second time this season that Chandler has been named to both publications' National Teams of the Week. Hoffman earned National Team of the Week honors for the week of Sept. 12-18 after scoring a hat-trick in UCLA's 3-2 win over UC Santa Barbara.

With the win over SDSU, the Bruins improved to 5-0 in the conference and currently lead the Aztecs by six points for first place in the Pac-12. Next up, UCLA will face the Cal State Northridge Matadors on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 7 pm out at Drake Stadium.
