The Nebraska soccer team's season comes to an end after falling in the second round of the NCAA tournament to No. 18 UCLA, finishing the season with an 11-6-5 record, the team's most wins since 2013. 

The Bruins got on the board with an early goal by Annie Alvarado in the fourth minute of action, and added to their lead in the 87th minute with a goal from Amber Munerlyn. 

Nebraska's freshman goalkeeper Auberi Corder racked up four saves in the match. Corder went 623 minutes without allowing a goal until the Bruin's fourth minute goal. She finished her first season with the Huskers with 78 saves and 20 goals allowed.

The Huskers' offense took ten shots in Friday's match, two of which were on goal. Seniors Jaycie Johnson and Caroline Flynn each engaged in three shots. 

Nebraska made its 12th NCAA tournament appearance this season.
