No. 13 Cal women edge No. 4 UCLA in thriller

   The No. 13 Cal women did not have sophomore All-American Zsofi Susanyi for Saturday's match at No. 4 UCLA.
   Fortunately for the Bears, they did have Annie Goransson.
   With the match tied 3-3, Goransson outlasted Courtney Dolehide 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 to give Cal a split of their weekend series in Los Angeles. The Bears lost at No. 6 USC 6-1 on Friday.
   Goransson, a senior from Sweden, has won six of seven singles matches since returning to action this month. An undisclosed injury sidelined her for much of the winter.
   "For Annie, getting her groundstrokes back on track has been important," Cal coach Amanda Augustus said on calbears.com. "She's always been a great competitor. She played really smart and got inspired by the situation and the moment, which is what you want."
   Susanyi, ranked fourth nationally in singles and 23rd in doubles with Klara Fabikova, missed her second straight match. The reason was not disclosed.
