The UCLA men's soccer team did everything but actually tell Loyola Marymount to, "Take this." And take that, and that, and that. But the third-seeded Bruins defeated the Lions, 4-2, in an NCAA tournament second-round game Wednesday night at Drake Stadium that spoke volumes about their intentions. The more experienced Bruins (14-3-3), making their 20th consecutive NCAA tournament appearance, matched Loyola's physical play and took the fight out of the Lions each time they attempted a comeback.

The UCLA women's and men's track teams will open their seasons Saturday in triangulars with Cal State Los Angeles and San Diego State at Drake Stadium. The women will begin at noon and the men at 1. UCLA men's Coach Bob Larsen has 25 lettermen, including 6 All-Americans, returning from a squad that was 9-0 in dual meets and named the nation's top team for such competition by Track and Field News. The Bruins finished eighth at the NCAA meet. They have won 20 consecutive dual meets dating to 1984.

Although college track and field is a team sport, its appeal comes from the individual athletes who represent a school. UCLA and USC once had stars in abundance. More recently, there have been athletes such as Greg Foster, Willie Banks and Mike Tully for the Bruins and Clancy Edwards, James Sanford and Billy Mullins for the Trojans. But the track programs at both schools, weakened by a 14-scholarship limit imposed in the NCAA, have had a distinctly low profile the past few years.

On an excitement scale, the USC-UCLA women's track meet Saturday at Drake Stadium almost reached the same level as last year's meet. The Trojan women won, 69-67, the identical score of the 1986 meet. However, in that meet, the outcome wasn't decided until the final event, the 1,600-meter relay. The suspense wasn't stretched out quite as long Saturday, with USC wrapping up the meet in the next-to-last event, the 200 meters, by placing second and third.
