LOS ANGELES -- UCLA jumped on the board early and added two more goals en route to a 3-0 win against Kentucky to advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament.
Caprice Dydasco scored at the 4:15 mark off an assist from Sam Mewis to give the second-seeded Bruins an early lead. The 1-0 score held through halftime and until Courtney Proctor doubled the lead in the 71st minute, assisted by Mewis and Chelsea Stewart. Dydasco added the final goal 10 minutes later, assisted by Proctor.
Dydasco's goals came on just two shots. Overall, UCLA took 20 shots and 12 were on goal. Kentucky had five, and forced Bruin keeper Katelyn Rowland to make one save.
