Less than three days after beating the Cardinal for the first time since 2013, the Bruins will be back on the field.
UCLA men’s soccer (4-2, 1-0 Pac-12) will take on California (2-3-1, 0-1) on Sunday night at Wallis Annenberg Stadium in the second game of the team’s conference slate.
After starting their season with a loss, the Bruins now have a chance to win three straight games for the first time since October 2018.
UCLA men’s soccer (2-1) returns to Wallis Annenberg Stadium on Monday to play against Cal State Northridge (0-3).
It’s been 698 days since the Bruins have had a winning streak.
After Friday night, that was no longer the case.
UCLA men’s soccer (2-1) shut out UC Irvine (0-3) 1-0 on Friday night at Anteater Stadium in the Bruins’ first away win of the season and the team’s second straight win.
For the second time in three games, Tommy Silva proved to be the hero in overtime.
Just three minutes into the golden goal period, redshirt freshman midfielder Tucker Lepley’s through ball was mishandled by the San Francisco keeper, and once again it was the sophomore defender Silva who pounced on the ball and capitalized on his opportunity.
It’s been almost a decade since the Bruins last lost a season opener.
With a blank record and revamped roster, UCLA men’s soccer will have a chance to continue that streak as it takes the field against Lipscomb on Thursday at Wallis Annenberg Stadium in its first game of the 2021 season.
When coach Ryan Jorden came to UCLA in 2019, there were only 17 names on his roster.
After two years of instilling his soccer philosophy into the team and growing his talent pool, Jorden enters his third year with men’s soccer having won and secured clean sheets in its first two exhibition games against Westmont and Cal Poly by scores of 3-0 and 1-0, respectively.
First, a shot hit the post, then the second was blocked by a defender before a third was stopped by the goalie.
Then, Tommy Silva’s one-time putback ricocheted off the post and found the back of the net to win the game for the Bruins in the golden goal.
The Bruins tied or beat the Huskies in almost every statistical category after 90 minutes Sunday, except for one – goals.
UCLA men’s soccer (1-4-1, 0-3-1 Pac-12) fell to then-No.
