Kansas, which did not record a shot in the first half, took its first shot of the contest at the 60:23 mark when Lauren Williams broke free and fired a shot from 15 yards. The Hawks managed only more shot when KU served a ball from the left into Caroline Smith. Smith, a Hermann Award semifinalist, tried flicking it past UCLA's Arianna Criscione, who stopped it for her second save of the night.
The loss eliminates Kansas from the NCAA tournament and ends its season at 18-6-1, marking the most single-season wins in KU soccer history. It also brings four seniors, Carmel Kaplinger, Lacey Woolf, Maggie Mason and Sarah Gonzalez, to the end of their careers at Kansas.
