It is time to get back to work for the UCLA Women’s Soccer team. The last time they were on the field for an official game, then-sophomore Kodi Lavrusky took a beautiful through ball from then-junior Megan Oyster to score the golden goal in overtime against Florida State to win their first National Championship under first-year coach, Amanda Cromwell. The last time the Bruins actually took the field was a week ago when the played #9 Texas A&M in an exhibition. UCLA won 3-1.
But now it is time to get serious as the title defense starts today!

The Bruins are defending national champions, have the #4 recruiting class in the country and is the overall #1 ranked team in the land. So what are the Bruins looking to do in Year 2 of the Cromwell era? Be the second team in NCAA history to win back-to-back titles., of course.
It all begins tonight as the Bruins officially start the 2014 season when they plays the Terrapins at Drake Stadium, so get out and support the defending national champions or watch them on the Pac-12 Networks.
