Cardinal Men Fall To UCLA 2-0
Oct. 2, 2005
Los Angeles, Calif. - The Stanford men's soccer team fell to the 23rd-ranked UCLA Bruins, 2-0, this afternoon at Frank W. Marshall Field in Los Angeles, Calif. before a crowd of 665. The Bruins improve their record to 6-2-0, 2-0-0 in the Pac-10. Stanford drops to 3-5-2, 0-1-1 in the conference.
Jordan Harvey got UCLA on the board at 33:42 with a sharp-angled shot from seven yards out. Harvey trapped a cross from Sal Zizzo and fired a shot past Stanford goalkeeper Andrew Kartunen.
An errant pass in the back by Stanford led to UCLA's second goal in the 59th minute. Hill intercepted the pass, passed it to Ramon Manak, who sent Kamani Hill a through ball up the middle. Hill's shot went into the right corner for his third goal of the year.
The Bruin defense shut Stanford down for most of the game, allowing only two shots (Marcus Ryan and Tunji Munabi), none on goal. Keeper Andrew Kartunen tallied six saves on the afternoon for Stanford.
The Cardinal return home to take on California on Saturday, October 8 at 7 p.m. in continued league action.
