LOS ANGELES -- Defending national champion Southern California failed in its bid to break the attendance record for a regular-season NCAA women's soccer game, drawing 7,804 fans for a 2-1 loss to UCLA on Friday night.
The crowd at the 93,000-seat Coliseum fell short of the regular-season attendance mark of 8,204 set in 1996 by Texas A&M and North Carolina. The overall record was set in 1999 when 14,410 fans watched the national championship game between North Carolina and Notre Dame at San Jose's Spartan Stadium.
Kristina Larsen scored twice for UCLA (14-0-2),
Megan Ohai scored for Southern California (12-3-1).
