San Diego State completed a weekend sweep of USC and UCLA on Sunday, beating the Bruins 9-2 behind a physical, smothering defense that gave up few good looks and kept UCLA’s offense on its heels the entire game.

Offensively, the Aztecs (5-2 overall, 0-2 SLC) were balanced, with five different players scoring. Freshman Jack Vonarb (Encino/Crespi) and junior Matthew Hardy (San Diego/Patrick Henry) scored three goals each. Vonarb ranks sixth nationally and leads the SLC in goals scored with 21.

There’s a complete set of photos available at Facebook.com/SouthlandLax, but here are some highlights:
