*USC set a new NCAA women’s soccer record attendance in their derby against UCLA. The attendance figure bested a 2006 crowd in College Station, Texas for a Texas A&M-North Carolina match. Loved the name of the goalscorer, too, – Autumn Altamirano.
*Pepperdine (7-5-5, 0-2-2 WCC) drew 0-0 with San Francisco, hitting the crossbar with just seconds to play – for the second consecutive game.
*Despite a fly-over by President Barack Obama in the Marine One helicopter en route to LAX, freshman Tawni Martino scored her fourth game-winning goal of the season as LMU snapped a three-match winless streak with a 1-0 win over visiting Saint Mary’s in a West Coast Conference match at Sullivan Field. It was Martino’s team-leading seventh goal of the season and allowed the Lions (9-5-1, 1-2-1 WCC) to leap over the Gaels (7-6-3, 1-3-0 WCC) in the standings.
