No. 15 Cal Upsets No. 6 UCLA, 1-0, in Double OT
Oct. 24, 2004
LOS ANGELES - Freshman forward Stephanie Wieger scored a golden goal in the second overtime period to lift No. 15 California to a 1-0 victory over No. 6 UCLA Sunday afternoon at Drake Stadium. The Golden Bears improved to 9-4-2 overall (2-2-1 Pac-10) after snapping a five-game losing streak to the defending Pac-10 champion Bruins. UCLA dropped to 11-5 (4-2).
Wieger, who came off the bench, posted the game's only goal in the 105th minute with a seven-yard unassisted shot from the right side. The Concord, Calif., product continues to make her claim on Pac-10 Freshman of the Year honors, as she now has 19 points from seven goals and five assists. Wieger also tallied the game-winning goal last Sunday in Cal's 1-0 triumph over No. 24 Arizona.
Junior goalkeeper Ashley Sulprizio recorded five saves in Cal's ninth shutout of the season. UCLA goalkeeper Valerie Henderson tallied three saves.
This week, Cal returns home to Edward Stadium for its final two regular season home games. The Bears face Oregon State Friday, Oct. 29 at 3:30 p.m. and then Oregon Sunday, Oct. 31 at noon.
