Sub Garcia inspires Matadors past Bruins

[UCLA-CAL STATE NORTHRIDGE] Cal State Northridge stunned No. 7 UCLA with two goals in the last seven minutes and beat the Bruins for the first time ever in Westwood.

Two goals from Chandler Hoffman -- his 13th and 14th of the season -- at the end of the first half had put the Bruins up 2-1 but the Matadors rallied on goals by Brian Behrad and Edwin Rivas.

The turning came after Jose Luis Garcia was subbed on for the Matadors Coach Terry Davila.

First, Garcia found Joe Franco, who sent a cross through the box to Behrad, who met it with a volley into the far part of the net to tie the match at 2-2 in the 83rd minute.

Two minutes later, Garcia almost put Northridge ahead when his free kick from 40 yards was tipped away by UCLA keeper Brian Rowe.

On the ensuing corner kick, Garcia found Rivas, who knocked the ball down to himself and scored inside the near post to put the Matadors ahead.
