Sophomore Aaron Lopez scored off a great crossing assist from senior All-American midfielder Ryan Futagaki.
It was a tough fought game with the momentum swinging back and forth throughout the match. UCLA's high scoring forwards Tim Pierce and Matt Taylor were shut down for the entire match by Stanford's big defensemen.
It was particulary poignant for Futagaki who lost his father this year to Lou Gehrig's disease and had dedicated the season to him.
UCLA wins its fourth national championship in men's soccer, having also won national championships in 1985, 1990, 1997.
