I attended this match-my first visit to Jeffrey Field, which is a very nice facility for college soccer. We got a surprise performance by the Blue Band at half time-part of the 25 years of Penn State Women's Soccer celebration.
UCLA was in general bigger and taller than we, and they won almost all of the aerial battles. UCLA played us tight and very physically (earning 4 yellow cards in the process). We were unable to advance up the middle and played many balls back to our keeper, who then struggled to find open outlets. UCLA was able to press us all over the field, which strained our ball movement, leading to insufficient possession. After UCLA scored the second goal, we did find a little space and generated some chances with quick ball movement, but even then we could only generate chances from outside of the box.
This was an excellent early test for our team, who will no doubt learn a great deal from the match. I retain high hopes for a successful season.
