UCLA Men's Soccer Team Rallies For 2-1 Victory Over Stanford
Oct. 23, 2004
Los Angeles, CA - The seventh-ranked UCLA men's soccer team overcame a 1-0 halftime deficit and defeated 17th-ranked Stanford, 2-1, in a Pac-10 Conference match played at Drake Stadium. Jonathan Bornstein and Chad Barrett scored for UCLA in the second period.
UCLA dominated the game, outshooting Stanford, 13-1. But Stanford capitalized on its one shot, with Matt Janusz scoring on a direct free kick just beyond the top of the box at 30:10.
The Bruins came up firing immediately after halftime, just 13 seconds into the half, Mike Enfield had a good scoring chance blocked by goalkeeper Robby Fulton, and at 48:03, Fulton made a nice save on a bending shot by Kamani Hill. Bornstein knotted the score at 1-1 at 56:34, tapping in a loose ball in the box for his first goal as a Bruin. Barrett was credited with the assist.
Hill nearly put the Bruins ahead in the 60th minute, but his shot from the left side was fingertipped out of harm's way by Fulton, who had four saves in the contest.
Fulton's fingertips weren't enough to stop Barrett's game-winner at 87:16, however. After a cross from Hill, Barrett fired off a shot from six yards out that was headed straight for the goal. Fulton put a fingertip on it, but it only slowed the ball from going into the back of the net.
The Bruins (8-2-2, 4-1-0 in the Pac-10) have now won seven-straight against the Cardinal (6-3-5, 1-2-2), although Stanford did break its seven-game scoreless streak against UCLA. The Bruins will host California on Sunday, Oct. 24 at 2:30 pm following the 12 pm game between the UCLA and Cal women.
