No. 22 Cal upsets No. 2 UCLA on golden goal

BERKELEY, Calif. -- The No. 22 California Golden Bears knocked off No. 2 UCLA 3-2 Friday at Edwards Stadium in Berkeley on the back of sophomore Christian Thierjung’s golden goal in the 99th minute.

Senior forward Stefano Bonomo tallied his seventh goal of the season late in the first half to give Cal (7-3-0, 1-2-0 Pac-12) the one-goal advantage.

It seemed as though the Bears would take home the victory in regulation when Paul Salcedo scored in the 79th minute.

But the Bruins were not done. A two-goal flurry in the final four minutes for UCLA (6-3-2, 1-1-0 Pac-12), including a 90th minute equalizer by Javan Torre, sent the match into overtime. That’s when Thierjung struck, just minutes from the conclusion of the first period of overtime, leading the Bears to their first Pac-12 win of the season.

"Without question, it was an incredible response from last Sunday's game,” head coach Kevin Grimes said. “The players put a lot into this week of training and were able to put together a fantastic performance today. It took a little longer than we thought, but give credit to UCLA for scoring two goals at the end. Ultimately, we came through with a huge goal in overtime and got the great win.”
