September 18, 1998
The fifth-ranked UCLA men's soccer team shut out its third consecutive opponent and extended its home winning streak to 21 games with a 1-0 victory over Gonzaga.
The Bruins (4-1) had plenty of chances in the game, totalling 19 shots and 13 corner kicks, but could not capitalize until the 84th minute when reserve midfielder Shaun Tsakiris (Saratoga, Calif.) put away a deflection of a Seth George (Mission Viejo, Calif.) shot.
The George assist extended the senior forward's point scoring streak to six games and increases his career point total to 97, 10th-best on UCLA's career list.
Bruin keeper Nick Rimando (Montclair, Calif.) made four saves to preserve the shutout, his third consecutive. Rimando dove to his left to save a rocket from Gonzaga midfielder Jason Kuska at the 79:00 mark, made another save just before Tsakiris' goal off a shot by Abbas Faridnia, and jumped high to save a shot from midfielder Joe Marks in the 87th minute.
Gonzaga keeper Josh Fouts made six saves.
UCLA will next face San Francisco Sunday, Sept. 20 at UCLA's North Athletic Field at 2:00 pm.
