Three Bruins Named to National Teams of the Week

Oct. 3, 2011

Los Angeles, Calif. - Senior Andy Rose, junior Matt Wiet and sophomore Joe Sofia were all named to National Teams of the Week following their performances against Cal and Stanford this weekend. Rose was named to College Soccer News' National Team of the Week while Wiet and Sofia were named to Top Drawer Soccer's.

Rose scored two goals over the weekend to lead UCLA to two wins in conference play. On Friday night against Cal, Andy scored the game-winning goal in the first minute of overtime to give the Bruins the 1-0 win. It was the first goal of the season for Rose and fourth of his career. He followed up that performance on Friday by converting a penalty kick on Sunday in UCLA's 2-0 win over Stanford. So far this season, Andy has started and played in every minute of every game and has now played in 3,857 consecutive minutes dating back to 2009.

Wiet and Sofia both played big roles in defense as the Bruins shut out both the Golden Bears and the Cardinal over the weekend. The two center backs did a very good job of limiting Cal and Stanford's scoring opportunities, holding the two teams to a combined four shots on goal. Wiet and Sofia are a big reason why the Bruins have shut out Pac-12 opponents in four of the last five conference games dating back to last season. Like Rose, both players have also started and played in every minute of every game.

With wins over California and Stanford, UCLA improved to 7-3-1 this season and 2-0-0 in Pac-12 play. The Bruins will face the Washington Huskies on Friday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 pm in Seattle, Wash.
