[ARIZONA STATE-UCLA] UCLA, No. 3 in this week's Soccer America Top 25, got goals from Abby Dahlkemper, Zakiya Bywaters and Ally Courtnall in the first 39 minutes and coasted to a 4-1 victory at Arizona State on Monday evening.
The win keeps the Bruins undefeated on the year with a 9-0-2 record.
Dahlkemper got the scoring started in the ninth minute for the Bruins with a header into the top right corner.
The first goal in the 9th minute came when Caprice Dydasco sent a cross into the box that went through Arizona State goalkeeper Chandler Morris' hands right to Dahlkemper, who headed the ball in for her third goal of the season.
Bywaters scored her team-leading ninth goal of the year in the 27th minute. Then, Jenna Richmond sent a through ball behind the ASU defense to a streaking Courtnall, who beat Morris with a shot to the lower right corner. The goal was Courtnall's third of the year.
Taylor Smith made it 4-0 before Alyssa Freeman capitalized on a UCLA turnover to break up the shutout.
The Bruins will play two more road games this week, traveling to Oregon to face the Ducks on Friday and Oregon State on Sunday.
Oct. 1 in Tempe, Ariz.
