MEN'S NEWS ... No. 6 UCLA survived its first game since seniors Brian Perk and Michael Stephens left to prepare for the Under-20 World Cup in Egypt, but it wasn't easy. The Bruins went down a goal against Cal State Fullerton after only four minutes, but rallied on goals by freshman Evan Raynr and junior Shawn Singh to defeat the Titans, 2-1. In his first collegiate start in goal, sophomore Brian Rowe, Perk's backup, was called upon to make five saves.

"At the end of the day, it was a good win after going down 1-0 and not having the best start," said UCLA coach Jorge Salcedo. "As the first half wore on, we got better and had more energy and were able to get the win."

* DERBY NIGHT. Thursday was derby night on the West Coast, where three other big matches were played. Defender A.J. Soares matched his career total with two goals in No. 8 California's 3-0 win at San Francisco. He also had an assist on Davis Paul's opening goal.

In the Bay Area Classic's other game, Stanford ended its six-game winless streak against Santa Clara and beat the Broncos, 2-0, on goals by juniors Bobby Warshaw and Daniel Leon. The visiting team also won the Pacific Northwest derby as Portland defeated Washington, 2-1, on goals by Keith Grubisich and Michael Nielsen.

* HAT TRICK HERO:
-- Transfer Debola Ogunseye's third goal of the game in 89th minute earned Furman a 3-3 tie at Coast Carolina.
