UCLA's Blake Wellen connected from two-meters out with one second remaining in the second overtime period to give the second-ranked Bruins a 12-11 win over third-ranked Stanford in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Tournament championship game. UCLA trailed 10-9 with under two minutes to play in regulation when Jeff Pflueger skipped a goal past Stanford goalkeeper Arik Goodman to knot the score at 10-10. The Bruin defense held the Cardinal for the duration of the period to force overtime. Stanford drew first blood in the extra frames, when Peter Hudnut connected on a lob shot.
