^ UCLA sophomore Annie Alvarado (above) reacts to her 85th-minute goal that produced a 2-1 final vs. arch-rival Stanford, in a meeting of two unbeatans (both 10-0-2) and recent NCAA champions (Stanford in 2011, UCLA 2013) … Alvarado – the only first-year starter among the veteran 2014 Bruins team – has played mostly in the midfield this season, but she saw significant minutes at forward in the big rivalry win. … Alvarado scored her first career goal at UCLA, after running onto a Sam Mewis thru-ball and one-timing a low shot off the far-left post. 


Eight minutes before that goal, Alvarado had swung the ball out wide for senior right back Ally Courtnall (below, in blue headband). … Courtnall then embarked on a long slanting run to her left and struck a leftfooted shot from the top of the box into the far-left side for the equalizer. ... Like Alvarado, it was Courtall's first goal of the season in very timely fashion. ... Courtnall – who has 12 goals in 75 career games played – also was hitting all the right notes before the game, when she sang the National Anthem. ... It was the second career game in which the senior has been the Anthem singer for the Bruins, and both times she has gone on to score a goal.

Stanford and UCLA – both 10-0-2 and among three unbeatens left among 332 teams in DI women's soccer (DePaul is 11-0-2) – met Thursday night in Westwood, renewing what is college soccer's top rivalry over the past few years. Stanford's current seniors were freshmen on the 2011 NCAA title team, while UCLA's current team includes 10 returning starters from the 2013 NCAA champs. The various key veterans, pictured from their 2013 clash, include (above) Stanford's Lo'eau LaBona (21) and UCLA's Sam Mewis (22) in the crucial midfield battle, plus (below) Stanford right back Laura Liedle (7) and UCLA dangerous forward Taylor Smith (14).
