[CALIFORNIA-UCLA: Men] No. 3 UCLA got goals from freshman Kevin De La Torre and junior Leo Stolz to beat No. 1 California, 2-1, in Berkeley and take the lead in the Pac-12.

The Bruins have a 5-1-3 conference record, good for 18 points. UCLA has one conference match remaining while Washington (4-1-2) and California (5-1-1) each have three.

UCLA had several great chances in the first half but senior Victor Munoz hit the crossbar and freshman Felix Vobejda had his volley cleared off the line.

Finally in the 43rd minute, De La Torre put the Bruins ahead. In the 70th minute, Stolz put the Bruins ahead by two when he gathered a pass from Munoz at the top of the box and buried a shot into the upper-right hand corner for his seventh goal of the year.

California answered less than a minute later, when Alec Sundly scored on a bicycle kick to cut UCLA’s lead to one.

Goalie Earl Edwards Jr. made five saves to pick up his 10th win of the season. Munoz's assist on Stolz's goal was his eighth assist of the year, which is a conference best.

“It was a great game by both teams,” UCLA coach Jorge Salcedo. “Both Cal and ourselves played one of the best matches in the conference this season. Our second goal in particular was a very good team goal and a fantastic finish from Leo Stolz. Our guys showed a lot of grit and determination to win up in Berkeley and I’m very proud of their effort and their resiliency. Now we just have to sit back and see what happens. We need a little bit of help, but we know that anything can happen in our conference with the number of quality of teams in it. We’ll see if the results fall in our favor and if they do, hopefully we’ll be playing for a Pac-12 Championship against San Diego State.”

The Bruins have a bye this week and will return to the pitch on Nov. 16 to play San Diego State on the road in the regular-season finale.
