Bruins still perfect

  UCLA had 10 shots on goal in the first half.

LOS ANGELES -- Top-ranked UCLA gave up its first goal of the season but remained unbeaten after a 2-1 victory against Wake Forest (2-4-0) on Friday night.

The Bruins (6-0-1) scored a pair of early goals in just over a minute as Rosie White converted a penalty kick in the ninth minute after Sam Mewis was taken down in the box. Mewis scored the second goal two minutes later in the 11th minute.

UCLA held Wake Forest to no shots for the first 61 minutes before Kendall Fischlein sent a shot wide in the 62nd and 64th minutes. Fischlein would play a key role in Wake Forest breaking UCLA’s shutout streak, taking a pass from Pilar Torres and heading it to Riley Ridgik who shot to the upper left corner, beating a diving Katelyn Rowland. The goal was the first given up by Rowland and the Bruins in 772 minutes.

“We came out really fast with two goals in the first 11 minutes and played well for the majority of the first half,” said UCLA head coach Amanda Cromwell. “I think we took our foot off the gas a little bit, and obviously in the second half we kind of lost our focus a bit. To Wake’s credit, they came out and pressed a bit more and looked to attack a bit more and came out with a goal.”
