[UCLA-STANFORD] Senior Fernando Monge scored a golden goal in the 103rd minute to give No. 5 UCLA a 2-1 victory over Stanford on Thursday night that left the Bruins needing just three points in their final two matches to clinch the Pac-12 crown that brings with it an automatic berth in the NCAA Tournament.

Monge took a great long ball from senior Chris Cummings on the left side, and his shot hit the crossbar and went in.

"Tonight's match was not a great team performance by us," UCLA coach Jorge Salcedo. "I attribute our performance to fatigue after playing our third match in seven days. Stanford was rested and is very difficult to play against and we didn't have a good game in terms of possession or really being good on the ball."

The Bruins, who had beaten Washington, 1-0, in Seattle on Monday, got an early goal when Victor Chavez scored in the 16th minute. In the second half, Stanford pushed men forward and finally got the equalizer in the 73rd minute on a goal by junior JJ Koval.

UCLA can wrap up the Pac-12 title with a win over visiting California Sunday.
