LOS ANGELES – In the first of a two-game Southern California road trip, the California women’s soccer team suffered its first Pac-12 loss of the season Thursday evening, falling to No. 2 UCLA 2-0 in Los Angeles.
Sophomore Teagan Wy registered seven saves for the Golden Bears (7-4-6, 4-1-4 Pac-12), including five during the first 22 minutes of the game. The Bruins scored twice during a seven-minute stretch later in the first half to take control.
Cal’s defense held the Bruins scoreless in the second half. Wy finished one save shy of her career-high of eight, which she tied last Sunday during the Bears’ 3-0 victory over Oregon State.
Junior Karlie Lema recorded three shots for the Bears.
Despite the loss, Cal remains in fourth place in the Pac-12 standings.
Cal will remain in Los Angeles to face No. 22 USC at McAlister Field on Sunday. Kickoff is scheduled for 12 p.m. PT and the game will air on Pac-12 Networks.
