The Oregon State men's soccer team battled UCLA with 10 men for much of the game and fell 1-0 in a Pacific-12 Conference game at Lorenz Field.

The game was scoreless when OSU defender Jalen Markey was ejected after receiving a questionable red card for a foul well outside the 18-yard box at 16:01 of the first half. OSU was thus forced to play the final 74 minutes with 10 men.

OSU stymied the Bruins until they scored at 68:02. The Beavers kept the Bruins off the scoreboard thereafter and had several good scoring chances, but were unable to capitalize.

Jordan Jones and Joe Hafferty had three shots, and Eric Diaz and Don Tchilao two apiece for the Beavers. 

UCLA outshot OSU 21-13; OSU keeper Gage Rogers had seven saves. Corner kicks were even at five each.

"Playing 76 minutes down a man to UCLA is a tall task," OSU coach Steve Simmons said. "I'm proud of how the guys dug in and worked hard to give us a chance to win.

“Many [soccer] fans know how difficult it is to play down a man for that long, so I'm proud of the resiliency the guys showed. We'll regroup for Sunday.”

The Beavers (3-7-0, 0-2-0) resume Pac-12 play at 11 a.m. Sunday when they host San Diego State. The game will be televised by the Pac-12 Network.
