Pierce Selected To Soccer America's Team Of The Week

Oct. 17, 2001

UCLA junior forward Tim Pierce was selected to Soccer America's Team of the Week for Oct. 8-14 after scoring the game-winning goal against previously-undefeated Stanford.

Pierce, who was also named the Pac-10 Men's Soccer Player of the Week for the second time this year, led UCLA to a 2-0 Pac-10 start with victories over California and No. 2 Stanford. Against the Cardinal, Pierce came off the bench to score the game-winner in the 89th minute to end Stanford's nine-game unbeaten streak.

This is the second weekly honor for Pierce. He was previously selected during week two of the season after being named MVP of the USF diadora Classic.
