Box Score

SAN DIEGO, Calif. - With a solid defensive effort, led by Brittany Cameron's season-high eight saves in goal, the University of San Diego women's soccer team battled to a scoreless draw with No. 6 UCLA Friday evening at Torero Stadium.

With the tie, the Toreros move to 2-1-2 overall and record only the second tie in program history with the Bruins. UCLA now moves to 2-1-1 on the young season.

Cameron recorded her third shutout of the season as she allowed no goals, on 24 shot attempts and picked up eight saves. Cameron has now lowered her West Coast Conference-leading goals-against-average to 0.55. Her counterpart for UCLA, Valarie Henderson, was also credited with a shutout as she allowed no goals and recorded one save.

Both teams had golden opportunities to score, especially late in the match. In the first overtime period, the Toreros' freshman striker Ashleigh Shoughro found herself deep in the Bruins goal box, was able to shake a defender off he and launched a rocket shot at the goal, and the ball just flew wide right, preserving the scoreless contest.

The Bruins also had a golden scoring opportunity come to them in the second overtime period. At the 102:29 mark, Christina DiMartino hit a laser shot straight from the left side of the goal box to the right corner of the goal, but Cameron played the ball perfectly and punched the ball up and over the cross bar to preserve the tie.

The Bruins outshot the Toreros 24-6 and also had a 14-6 advantage in corner kicks.

Shoughro, led the team in shot attempts as she recorded three and Amy Epsten was also effective on the offensive side of tings as she tallied two shots in the match.

USD will return to action on Sunday as they host the Cal Poly Mustangs in a 1 p.m. non-conference match at USD's Torero Stadium.
