Freshman Chandler Hoffman scores the winner for UCLA

Freshman forward Chandler Hoffman scored the game-winning goal in the 80th minute to lead sixth-seeded UCLA to a 2-1 victory over Sacramento State in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday night. The Bruins (11-3-4) advance to the third round to play host UC Santa Barbara on Sunday, Nov. 29 at 5 pm at Drake Stadium.

UCLA took a 1-0 lead in the first half when Kyle Nakazawa converted a 30th-minute penalty kick for his team-leading 12th goal of the year. However, Sacramento State equalized in the second half when Hornet forward Max Alvarez curled a long distance shot into the upper left corner.

The Bruins answered five minutes later after Michael Stephens sent a pass to Fernando Monge on the left side. Monge crossed to Hoffman right in front of the goal, and the freshman slipped in the shot to the left corner for the go-ahead goal in the 79th-minute mark. The goal was Hoffman's fifth of the season.

UCLA's third-round matchup with UC Santa Barbara will be a rematch of the 2006 NCAA Championship game, which UCSB won, 2-1. The Gauchos advanced to the third round with a 1-0 win tonight at San Diego.
