No. 7 UCLA Takes Care of Oregon, 8-0
Oct. 15, 2000
Los Angeles - The seventh-ranked UCLA women's soccer team set two single-game school records Sunday, defeating Oregon 8-0 in a Pac-10 match-up at UCLA's Drake Stadium. The Bruins' eight goals on the afternoon were UCLA's most ever against a Division-1 opponent, surpassing the previous total of seven set against UNC-Charlotte on Sept. 10, 1999. In addition, UCLA's 35 shots in the game were also a school record against a Division-1 opponent, one more than the Bruins' 34 shots taken against Oregon State on Oct. 19, 1997.
UCLA has scored 11 goals and registered 49 shots in a match, however that was against NAIA Southern California College back on Sept. 7, 1993.
UCLA (11-1-1, 2-0-1 Pac-10) got things started in the 19th minute when, for the second straight match, junior Bethany Bogart bent in a corner kick to put the Bruins ahead 1-0. Just a few minutes later, senior Tracey Milburn received a through ball from Bruin freshman Whitney Jones and put in her first of two goals on the afternoon at the 20:08 mark.
UCLA took a 3-0 lead in the 31st minute of the match when sophomore Tracey Winzen fed Staci Duncan for her first goal of the afternoon. Following a 3-0 halftime lead, Duncan would score her second goal of the day at the 51:31 mark with assists from Milburn and junior Stephanie Rigamat.
Just 28 seconds later Milburn put UCLA ahead 5-0 after taking a ball from midfield and dribbling the distance to beat Oregon substitute goalkeeper Jeanine Norstad for her second goal of the day. It didn't get any easier for the Ducks as, less than a minute later, Rigamat received a Venus James cross from the left side, putting in her first goal of the day from about six yards out.
Milburn, who finished the day with six points, notched her final point in the 89th minute of the match when she assisted on a Breana Boling goal from about 16 yards out to give UCLA an 8-0 advantage.
UCLA, which moved its unbeaten streak to 12-straight matches, outshot the Ducks 35-12. The Bruins have not lost a game since a 1-0 loss to Clemson in the season opener back on Aug. 25.
With the loss, Oregon falls to 4-11-0 overall and 1-3-0 in Pac-10 play.
The Bruins return to action this Friday when they travel up to Washington for a match with the Washington State Cougars. On Sunday, in a battle of top-10 teams, UCLA will take on No. 4 Washington at Noon.
