Bruins Shut Out Virginia, 4-0
Sept. 7, 2003
College Park, Md. - The top-ranked UCLA Bruins rebounded from its loss on Friday night to Maryland with a 4-0 win over Virginia Sunday afternoon at the Maryland/adidas Soccer Classic.
The Bruins struck quickly as Dru Hoshimiya redirected Adolfo Gregorio's shot with his head at 5:46. Gregorio stretched the lead to 2-0 when his shot from the end line went through Virginia keeper Ryan Best's hands. Chad Barrett and Mike Enfield were credited with assists.
Virginia put pressure on the Bruin defense, but UCLA had a superior counter-attack. Kirk Dinnall and Joe Vide each had two good looks at the goal that were turned away by UCLA keeper Zach Wells.
The Bruins took advantage of some aggressive plays by Virginia with two goals in the 85th minute. Mike Enfield converted from five yards out on a cross from Phillip Harr. Kiel McClung was also credited with an assist.
McClung then scored UCLA's fourth goal on a great move from inside the box. He slipped by two defenders and then beat Best with a shot in the top right corner of the net. Enfield got the assist and finished the game with four points on one goal and two assists.
UCLA (3-1-0) returns home to Southern California next week with a Sept. 14 game against Cal State Fullerton at the Home Depot Center in Carson. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:00 pm.
