LOS ANGELES, Calif. -
The fourth-ranked UCLA men's soccer team finished the regular season with its eighth win in its last nine games, defeating UC Davis, 3-1, in front of 1,725 Saturday night at Drake Stadium.
With the loss the Aggies finish its first season with a 6-10-2 record while UCLA ends regular-season play with a 13-3-2 mark.
UCLA got on the scoreboard first, in the 38th minute. Jonathan Bornstein sent in a cross from the left side to Benny Feilhaber, who booted it in past UC Davis goalkeeper Jake Martini. After the intermission, UC Davis quickly got back into the game. Just one minute, 54 seconds into the second half, Connor Voss scored his first goal of the season on a 10 yard shot, assisted by Ryan Shaw.
The Bruins regained the lead at the 77:52 mark when senior Mike Enfield lobbed a pass to Kiel McClung on the right side. McClung slotted the ball into a crowded box to Feilhaber for the game-winner. UCLA received some cushion late in the game. With the Aggies furiously trying to equalize, Chad Barrett sent a long pass to Mike Enfield on the right side for a breakaway, and Enfield eluded an Aggie defender and Martini for his team-leading 11th goal of the year.
For the second straight game, the Bruin defense kept its opponent to a shot total under four, this time allowing just three shots. UCLA's offense recorded 19 shots. Martini finished the night with four saves as the junior was making his only start of the season.
