UCLA Women’s Soccer Beats UCF in PKs, Advances in NCAA Tournament

The Bruins needed to be perfect, and they were.

With the game and season on the line, No. 1 seed UCLA women’s soccer (18-2-1, 9-2 Pac-12) came through with a win in penalty kicks to knock UCF (9-2-7, 7- 0-1 AAC) out in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Friday night. The Bruins swept the Knights in the shootout, beating them 3-0 after going through two overtime periods locked at 1-1.

Sophomore defender Jayden Perry, senior forward Sunshine Fontes and sophomore defender Lilly Reale each stepped up and converted on their spot kicks, while graduate goalkeeper Lauren Brzykcy made a save and watched UCF’s other two tries hit the post and crossbar.
