UCLA traveled to the Santa Barbara Shootout to face strong national competition for the President's Day weekend and came away with three decisive wins.

The Bruins first faced a nationally competitive Colorado team to open the tournament on Friday night, winning 17-10.  The game was intense from the start, but both teams struggled to keep play clean as a total 7 yellow cards were given in the contest.  The Bruins jumped out to a 9-4 halftime lead, but were forced to play man down for the last 12 minutes of the game after receiving their fourth team yellow card.  Despite being down a player on both ends of the field, the Bruins continued to work hard and finished the game on a 7-2 run.  Freshman midfielder Gretchen Kiep lead all scorers with 6 points (4 G, 2 A), while junior midfielder Molly Tracy added 4 goals.  Freshman defender Jackie Adelsberg anchored the defense and was a force in transition throughout the game.

On Saturday, the Bruins balanced team play continued with a 19-9 win over Northeastern.  After falling behind 3-1 in the first three minutes of the game, UCLA strung together 9 straight goals, while holding the Paws scoreless for over 30 minutes to build a 10-3 lead early in the second half.  Eight different Bruins scored a point with six scoring multiple points.  Kiep (5 G) and fellow freshman Chloe Silance (4 G, 1 A) stepped up adding 5 points a piece.

In the final game of the weekend, UCLA took on Western Washington, eventually powering to a 21-7 win with a strong defensive effort.  After a tight first half, the Bruins led 10-7 at halftime, but came out and took control of the second half, holding the Vikings scoreless to finish out the game.  Solid goalkeeping from senior Martine Ehrlich was key in the defensive effort.  Throughout the weekend, sophomore midfielder Sam Fletcher continued to be a force off the draw, helping the Bruins to win 21 out of 30 draw controls on the day with 7 draw controls.

UCLA moves to 4-1 on the season against WCLA competition.  Next up, the Bruins take on University of San Diego and UC Berkeley in the only home double header of the season.  The game vs USD is at 2 pm on the IM fields and the game vs Cal is on NAF at 12pm.
