Cal upsets No. 24 UCLA

  California men's soccer earned its first conference victory of the season.

BERKELEY – Christian Thierjung netted the game-winning goal, his ninth of the season matching his career best, as the Golden Bears upended the 24th-ranked Bruins in Los Angeles on Thursday night.

California (5-6-2, 1-3-1 Pac-12) earned its first conference win as they came from behind to pull off the victory and split the series with league-rival UCLA (7-5-1, 3-3-0).
 
After trailing 1-0 midway through the second half, Jose Carerra-Garcia scored the equalizer in 74' to match UCLA's Felix Vobejda opening score. Carerra-Garica has scored in both contests against the Bruins this season, recording his sixth goal Thursday.
 
A week ago, in a closely-contested match, Cal was stunned by then 17th-ranked UCLA as they pelted in a goal with two seconds remaining on the clock to claim a 4-3 win.
 
The Bears continue their trek south to face San Diego State in a league rematch after the Aztecs came away with a 1-0 win last Sunday in Berkeley.
