LOS ANGELES. -- No. 3 UCLA (17-1, 1-0) posted a statement win at No. 1 Stanford (17-1, 0-1), dominating the Cardinal in the second half for a 10-6 win on Saturday afternoon at Avery Aquatic Center. UCLA improved to 80-90 in the series history against the Cardinal.
The Bruins outscored Stanford 4-0 in the third quarter and 7-2 in the final 16:01 of the game to win on the road in the MPSF opener for both teams. The Bruins had five players score in the game, led by sophomore Chase Dodd's season- and career-high-tying four goals. In just his second game back after missing 11 in a row, junior attacker Makoto Kenney scored twice, including the eventual game-winning goal on a power play at the 5:30 mark of the third period.
