Women of Troy Fall to No. 1 Bruins on Record Night

The USC women's soccer team let up two goals in the final 11 minutes to fall to UCLA Friday night.

The USC women's soccer team (12-6-2) fell to No. 1 UCLA 2-0 in a PAC-12 thriller in front of a record-setting crowd at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Friday night. In the season finale and senior night for the Women of Troy, the top ranked Bruins were held scoreless until breaking through for the first goal of the night in the 79th minute off a pretty cross net scoarcher by senior Kylie McCarthy. A quick combination by the UCLA offense was on display with a through ball that cut up the USC defense and led to McCarthy's second of the night to round out the scoring.

The Women of Troy were led by senior keeper Caroline Stanley, who registered eight saves as the Bruins won the shot total 24-3. On a winning note for USC, the school recorded a regular season game record with 10,128 people in attendance. 

"This was an amazing, amazing atmosphere and environment to perform in," said head coach Keidane McAlpine. "I think it was a great opportunity for us to play in this type of environment to prepare for the NCAA Tournament if we are so lucky to be selected."

USC will have to await the selection show that begins at 12:30 p.m. Monday to see if they will continue its season in the NCAA Tournament.
