[COLLEGE WOMEN: Weekend] Darian Jenkins' fourth goal in four games gave UCLA a 1-0 victory over Notre Dame and the Notre Dame adidas Invitational title before 2,231 fans at Alumni Stadium.

The Bruins finished with a 20-1 shot margin but waited until the 80th minute. Ally Courtnall started the play with a shot that hit the crossbar. A Notre Dame defender mishit the clearance, and it went to Jenkins, who slid it past Notre Dame goalkeeper Kaela Little for the game-winner.

Jenkins was the Offensive MVP, Katelyn Rowland earned the tournament's Golden Glove Award as the Most Valuable Goalkeeper, and junior defender Abby Dahlkemper was the Defensive MVP.

“It was all about being in the right place at the right time,” said Crowley. “After the ball went in, I said to myself ‘Did this just happen; it’s over, no more overtime, we can rest now.’  The whole time everyone was saying that it only takes one, it only takes one moment to win this game.”
