COLLEGE: Freshmen lead No. 4 UCLA

By Scott French

UCLA rallied from a second-half deficit, getting three goals from freshmen in just more than 12 minutes to overcome Loyola Marymount, 3-1, in a nonconference women's soccer showdown on the Lions' Sullivan Field.

Samantha Mewis scored two goals and Kylie McCarthy also tallied for the fourth-ranked Bruins (7-0-1), who won their fourth in a row to close out their nonconference schedule.

LMU (6-2-1) withstood heavy pressure in the first half and asserted its attack after halftime, and Tawni Martino (Irvine/Beckman HS) provided a 59th-minute lead.

It lasted all of eight minutes. Mewis, a 5-foot-11 midfielder from Massachusetts who has starred for the U.S. under-17 and under-20 teams, headed home a corner kick by Chelsea Cline in the 67th minute, and McCarthy netted the go-ahead goal in the 76th. Mewis struck again three minutes later.

MEN: Vanguard hands Chapman first loss

Kyle O'Brien and Kevin Cornwall scored first-half goals and combined to set up another at the start of the second half, and Vanguard halted Chapman's perfect start to the season, pulling out a 3-1 triumph in Orange.

O'Brien (Garden Grove/Marina HS) scored in the 29th minute and Cornwall in the 40th for Vanguard (5-3-0), an NAIA school from Costa Mesa. They set up Cal State San Bernardino transfer Billy Pellow (Highland/Redlands East Valley HS) for a 3-0 advantage in the 50th minute. Quinn Murray tallied for the Panthers (5-1-0).

Chapman, ranked 14th in NCAA Division III, had shut out its previous four opponents. Its 5-0-0 start equaled the best in school history.
