Sofia Named to National Team of the Week
By: UCLA Athletics

Sept. 3, 2012

Los Angeles, Calif. - Junior defender Joe Sofia has been named to the Top Drawer Soccer National Team of the Week for the week of Aug. 27-Sept. 2, as announced by the publication today.

The Dove Canyon, Calif. native played every single minute in both of UCLA's matches this weekend. On Friday against Maryland, he led a back line that was able to hang tough against 22 Maryland shots, as UCLA earned a hard-fought 2-2 draw. Then on Sunday against Virginia, he scored a golden goal in the 99th minute to lift UCLA to a big 1-0 road win over the Cavaliers. Sofia now has scored three goals in his UCLA career, all of them game-winners.

The Bruins improved to 1-1-1 on the season after going 1-0-1 on their tough east coast road trip. Next up, UCLA will face Tulsa on Friday, Sept. 7 at 4:30 pm and UC Irvine on Sunday, Sept. 9 at 2 pm in two non-conference home matches.
