Sept. 9, 2007

Final Stats

WESTWOOD, CALIF. - Strong early season defense continued to be San Francisco's (0-1-2) calling card despite a 3-0 loss to UCLA (2-1-0) Sunday afternoon. The Bruins attempted 21 shots in the match but were held to finding the net only three times.

"Obviously it's not the result we wanted but we can take a lot of positives from our performance," Head Coach Mark Carr said. "We were organized, worked hard and defended very well against a talented UCLA team. May have been a different story if we had sneaked a goal in before half time and gone into the second half, 1-1."

For USF, their best scoring chance in the 15-minute mark as sophomore forward Jenny Jarvie hit a lead pass for freshman forward Keonna Robinson who fired in the box.

The Dons also made it interesting on a break away at the 29th minute when Robinson fed sophomore forward Samantha Brand whose shot was just wide. The Dons had a total of five shots on the afternoon.

Bruins' senior forward Danesha Adams had two of the Bruins' goals. She scored the first goal of the game at 10:36 on a pass from junior midfielder Christina DiMartino and sophomore defender Lauren Wilmoth. She also made goal on a free kick just outside the box at 71:19.

DiMartino had the Bruins' third goal at 75:44. Freshman midfielder Sarah Salazar and sophomore forward Lauren Cheney were credited for assists.

In 78-minutes between the pipes, USF junior goalkeeper Katie Hodgson recorded a game-high six saves.

USF now turns its attention to their next match, Friday at UC Davis.

DONS' NOTES - Sunday's match marked the first time Head Coach Mark Carr has faced UCLA where he served as assistant coach from 2003-2006... USF is now 0-6-0 against the Bruins all-time... Dons' freshman midfielder Shannon Reimer made her collegiate debut in Sunday's match.
