MEN'S NEWS ...It's been a rough couple of weeks for UCLA goalie Brian Perk. First, he got shelled at the Under-20 World Cup in Egypt, where the USA lost a pair of 3-0 decisions to Germany and South Korea and was knocked out in the first round for the first time in more than two decades. Then in his first game back with the Bruins, he was kicked in the face by a San Diego State player while diving for the ball and had to be taken to the hospital.

Fortunately, Perk was not seriously injured and was back in action Friday for No. 2 UCLA, earning the shutout for the Bruins in their 1-0 win over No. 13 California in front of 1,807 fans at Drake Stadium.David Estrada scored the only goal of the game in the 15th minute on an assist from fellow senior Kyle Nakazawa. The assist extended Nakazawa's points scoring streak to eight games -- matching UCLA's unbeaten streak.

Perk didn't have much to do in the first half -- UCLA had a 12-1 edge in shots -- but he made a diving save on Hector Jimenez's shot with 11 minutes remaining. Cal keeper David Bingham, who was also injured (hamstring) last week, made eight saves to keep the game close.

-- No. 19 Stanford won a Pac-10 thriller, coming back from a goal down with three minutes to play and eventually beating San Diego State, 2-1, on the road thanks to a golden goal by Ryan Thomas on a free kick from 24 yards.

* STREAK CONTINUES.Monmouth got goals from sophomore Max Hamilton and Ryan Kinne within 90 seconds of each other late in the second half to come away with a 2-0 win at Bryant and improve its record to 12-0-1. Kinne, who helped the New York Red Bulls win the USL Super-20 championship this summer, leads the Northeast Conference with seven goals.
