Reilyn Turner – Junior – Forward – UCLA
Turner came through in the clutch for the Bruins scoring the two biggest game-winners of the week and season to date. Turner used her touch on the ball and quickness to create the space and angle she needed to drive the game-winning goal into the back of the frame in UCLA’s 2-1 win over Duke in Durham. She also displayed her skill on the ball and finishing ability with a sequence that began at midfield and concluded with a rocket from just outside the box that proved to be the game-winning goal in the Bruin’s 2-1 win over North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
Freshman defender Jayden Perry scored UCLA’s first goal in the win over Duke when she converted a penalty kick that resulted from Turner being fouled in the box. Freshman forward Lexi Wright scored the Bruins first goal in the win over the Tar Heels. Graduate Student Lauren Brzykcy was outstanding in goal for UCLA in both contests.
UCLA improves to 5-0-0. The Bruins resume play when they host Cal State Fullerton on Sunday.
