Oct. 12, 2001

Los Angeles, Calif. (Oct. 12) -- The University of Arizona women's soccer team (3-6-1, 0-1-0 Pac-10) fell to second-ranked UCLA, 2-0, in their Pac-10 opener in Los Angeles on Friday night. The win moves the undefeated Bruins to 10-0-0 on the year and 1-0-0 in Pac-10 play.

The two teams played to a scoreless tie at halftime, with the Wildcats holding the Bruins to only three first-half shots. UCLA's Mary-Frances Monroe ended the stalemate with her goal at 57:48, then Stephanie Rigamat iced the win at 60:41.

UCLA had only a 10-4 edge in the shots category. Wildcats Twila Kaufman, Sierra Cristiano, Vanesha Bailey and Cassie Daniels logged one shot each, and sophomore defender Shannon Harrelson was the only substitute head coach Cathy Klein used in the game.

Senior goalkeeper Shannon Monti played all 90 minutes in the nets for Arizona, collecting two saves. CiCi Peterson got the shutout for the Bruins with just one save.

The loss was Arizona's fifth in a row. In the midst of a six-game road swing, the Cats remain in Los Angeles to take on USC on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 1 p.m.
