Chandler Hoffman tallied twice as UCLA rolled into the third round of the NCAA Division I men's tournament Sunday, scoring four second-half goals in a 4-1 victory over visiting Sacramento State.
The eighth-seeded Bruins (15-4-1) will be home next Sunday against Dartmouth (12-6-1), which beat Notre Dame, 2-1, in overtime.
UCLA took command of a tight game as Hoffman scored in the 55th minute and freshman Reed Williams (Newport Beach/Corona del Mar HS) in the 58th. Hoffman, who has scored in four straight games, got his second in the 73rd, and freshman Victor Chavez (Fontana/A.B. Miller HS) made it 4-0 in the 85th.
Ernesto Carranza scored for Sacramento State (11-5-7) in the 87th.
“We started out the game a little bit slowly,” UCLA coach Jorge Salcedo told the school's website. “I thought some of the guys seemed nervous, and it took us a little bit to get going, but in the second half, how can you not be happy with four goals? Our production in front of goal in the second half was very good.”
GAUCHOS GONE: UC Santa Barbara's dream of playing at home in the College Cup final four is dead. The Gauchos (14-5-3) lost, 2-1, in overtime at Pac-10 champion Cal (13-2-3), the No. 6 seed.
Ghanian forward Michael Tettah, who played at Dunn School in Los Olivas, gave Santa Barbara a 82nd-minute lead, but the Bears rallied on Servando Carrasco's 89th-minute penalty kick and won when Davis Paul (Upland/Damien HS) tallied at the end of the first half of overtime.
Cal will face Brown (12-3-4), which topped Connecticut on penalty kicks, in the third round.
