Box Score

Bookmark and Share Printer Friendly Apr. 12, 2014

Ranked 6th nationally for the sixth consecutive week, UCLA entered the final game of the 2014 regular season against unranked USC. 

The celebration started early for the Bruins as they jumped out to a 5-0 lead against the Trojans just ten minutes into the contest.  At the half, UCLA held a commanding 14-3 lead.  In the second half, the Bruins tried to slow the game down and work their possessions, taking only 5 shots and making 3, finishing the game with a 17-8 win.  

The game was the final home game for the seniors - attacker Kate Armstrong, defenders Teryn Bence and Sharon Woo, and goalkeeper Martine Ehrlich.  Armstrong scored for the first time this year, after being limited for most of the season due to injury.  Bence was a force in defensive and transition play, aiding the Bruins clear throughout the game.  Ehrlich picked up 4 saves on the day, but did not see much activity in the contest as the Bruins held the ball for the majority of play.  Woo did not play because she is not registered in spring quarter classes.  Congratulations to all the seniors on their fantastic lacrosse careers at UCLA!

Though last weekend was tough for the Bruins on the draw, UCLA was back to dominating the center circle, winning 82.6% of draws.  Midfielder Sam Fletcher once again was a force at center, winning 15 of 18 draws taken (83.3%) and nabbing 5 draw controls.  Midfielder Gretchen Kiep led all scorers with 7 points (6 G, 1 A), while attacker Chloe Silance tallied 5 assists.  Midfielders Kristin Alexander (3 G, 3 DC) and Annie Zwaschka (2 G, 2 A, 2 DC) also made significant contributions.  

The Bruins finish the regular season with a 12-2 record overall and 8-1 in the WWLL.  UCLA awaits seeding for the WWLL Championship Tournament next weekend in Santa Barbara, where they are a likely top 2 or 3 seed.  Although the 'B' team was off this weekend, they will also be traveling to Santa Barbara for the 'B' Division playoff.  Though it must still be confirmed, UCLA 'B' should be the 2 seed in the tournament and will play Saturday and Sunday.  Full seeding and game schedule will be released by Monday.
