Dec. 15, 2005

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Two UCLA women's soccer players have been named 2005 Soccer America MVPs. Sophomore Danesha Adams and senior Jill Oakes were voted to the 11-member team by the magazine.

Adams led the Bruins in scoring in 2005, posting 46 points on 21 goals and four assists. She set the NCAA Tournament record for points and goals in a game when she netted four goals in UCLA's 5-0 victory over Virginia in the Quarterfinals.

A 2005 first team All-American and four-time Pac-10 All-Conference first team member, Oakes was the leader of a Bruin defense that surrendered just 12 goals in 26 matches this season. Under her leadership, UCLA posted a school record 18 shutouts in 2005, ranking fifth in the nation in goals against average (0.45) and fourth in shutout percentage (0.69).
