NEWS AND NOTES

  • With a 5-0 win over No. 2-seeded Virginia on Fri., Nov. 25, UCLA (21-1-2) advances to the 2005 NCAA Women's College Cup, its third finals appearance in as many years ... Through 12 Pac-10-sponsored seasons, the Bruin squad becomes just the fifth team in Conference history to advance to the final four, as UCLA went in 2004, 2003 and 2000, and STANFORD earned its lone trip in the 1993 season.

  • The Bruins will take on No. 2 seed Florida State in its semifinal match, Fri., Dec. 2 at 6:30 p.m. CT, at the Aggie Soccer Complex on the campus of Texas A&M University ... The match will be televised on ESPNU ... Florida State knocked off top-seeded North Carolina in its quarterfinal match, 5-4, on penalty kicks ... In the other portion of the semifinal bracket, No. 1 seed Portland (22-0-1) will take on No. 1 seed Penn State (23-0-1).

  • Bruin sophomore midfielder Danesha Adams became just the second player in school history to score four goals in a game, as she put up a quartet in Friday's win over the Cavaliers ... Adams, who now has 20 goals on the season, takes over the Pac-10 leaderboard, and is just two shy of tying the UCLA single-season record set by Traci Arkenberg (22) in 1997.

  • As its offensive production goes up, the UCLA defense continues to deny opponents ... Through four postseason matches played, the Bruins have scored 21 goals, as compared to its opponents' zero ... Sophomore goalkeeper Valerie Henderson ranks first in the Conference with a 0.38 goals against average through 1876:58 minutes played.

  • UCLA set a new single-season school record for victories in a season with its 21st of the year ... The old mark was 20 set by teams in 2001 and 2003 ... The 21 wins ties the Conference record, as the 2002 Stanford squad finished the year 21-2-0.
