Forgedias Posted October 9, 2016 Share Posted October 9, 2016 (edited) Just finished listening to the live audio of the match against Stanford. The number one team in the country against UCLA, the 10th ranked team in the nation. It really looked like UCLA were going to make a come back since Stanford looked to control most of the game in full time. UCLA scored first in the 12 minute and then Stanford 2 minutes later equalizes it. Then would go up 2-1 late in the second half. In the 86th minute Jessie Fleming would equalize it from a corner kick. Since this wasn't televised, the announcer called it like this. "Left booted miracle from Fleming" "Magic presence on the pitch" Since Fleming is a right footed player, its nice to know that Fleming can score from either foot. In the overtime, UCLA had several good chances to score and had a Stanford player clear a ball from the line so it was close. Stanford would score the golden goal in the second overtime period and win the match which was disappointing with the heroics of Jessie Fleming. Stanford is a very technical team. They play ball possession football so losing to them isn't the end of the World since they are the number one ranked team in the nation. It would of been nice to get a result though for UCLA. So Jessie Fleming scores her 8th goal of the season. Pretty sure she is winning the Pac12 freshman of the year honors this year. On her playing time. Since she played about 108 minutes on Thursday, her minutes were less even with both overtimes. She only played 35 minutes in the first half and about 40 in the second but played all the overtime.
