Men's Soccer Upset By Cal, 1-0, in Pac-10 Showdown
Oct. 20, 2000
Berkeley, CA - The seventh-ranked UCLA men's soccer team dropped its third decision in four games, falling to California, 1-0, at Berkeley's Goldman Field.
With just five minutes remaining in the match, Cal junior Austin Ripmaster took a pass from junior Chris Roner. Ripmaster shot from 12-yards out to the far post, past a diving Bruin keeper DJ Countess for the Bears' first goal in nearly three full games.
The Bruin loss was UCLA's third this season. All three losses have been against Pac-10 teams and have been decided by one goal.
The Bruins outshot the Bears by a 12-9 margin, with Cliff McKinley taking four of the Bruin shots. The Bears were led by Arredondo and Ripmaster, who recorded three shots apiece.
Freshman Brian Walker recorded five saves for the Bears to earn his second win and second shutout on the season. Countess made four saves for the Bruins.
With the win, the Bears improve to 3-9-1 overall, 1-2-1 in the Pac-10. The loss drops UCLA to 9-3-0, 1-3. The Bruins will next take on Oregon State on Sunday, Oct. 22 in Corvallis at 2:00 pm.
