#18 UCLA Men's Soccer Team Upsets #1 Stanford In Double Overtime
Nov. 10, 2000
The 18th-ranked UCLA men's soccer team upset top-ranked Stanford, 1-0 in double overtime, on a McKinley Tennyson Jr. penalty kick.
With UCLA on the offensive in the 112th minute, Tennyson was taken down by a Stanford defender in the penalty area to draw a penalty kick. Tennyson took the penalty kick and drove it to the left of Stanford goalkeeper Adam Zapala, who dove to his right. The goal was Tennyson's team-leading 14th of the season.
Both teams had opportunities to score in both regulation and overtime, with Stanford taking 18 shots and UCLA taking 11, but UCLA goalkeeper DJ Countess and Stanford's Zapala made quality saves to keep the game scoreless. Countess made seven saves, while Zapala had four.
UCLA's victory not only snapped Stanford's seven-game winning streak, but also took the Cardinal out of the running for the Pac-10 title, which now goes to Washington. The victory was also UCLA's second over a No. 1 team this season, earlier in the season, the Bruins defeated No. 1 Indiana, 2-1.
The Bruins improve their record to 11-6, 2-5 in the Pac-10, while Stanford drops to 15-2-1, 6-2 in the Pac-10. The Bruins close the regular season on Sunday, Nov. 12 against Cal at 2:00 pm on Frank W. Marshall Field at Drake Stadium.
