Southern Utah on the verge of GWC title

Enterprise staff writer Two weeks ago, Southern Utah sat at 1-4 on the season and was down 14-0 after less than seven minutes had elapsed in North Dakota. Things are completely different for the Thunderbirds in the present. They came back to beat the Fighting Sioux by 10; then Cal Poly, 20-7; and then South […]

UCD didnÕt take advantage of chances

Enterprise staff writer It would be easy to blame Sean Kelley for the UC Davis football teamÕs 24-21 loss to South Alabama on Saturday. After all, the normally reliable junior kicker Ñ who made 16 straight field goals at one point over the past two years and was 8-for-9 this year Ñ did miss both […]

Two-minute drill is AggiesÕ best offense

Enterprise staff writer While the UC Davis offense hasnÕt been as effective as it would like it to be in 2010, one thing the Aggies canÕt complain about is how they have performed in their two-minute offense. UCD has driven at least 60 yards on its final drive of the first half in each of […]

A familiar problem

Enterprise staff writer Very often, it is turnovers that decide the outcome of football games. But turning the ball over wasnÕt what hurt UC Davis on Saturday, as it won the turnover battle 4-1.

Aggies respect South Alabama

Enterprise staff writer Throw away the statistics. The gaudy numbers South Alabama has put up in 2010 Ñ such as a point differential of 282-30 while outgaining foes more than 2-to-1 in yardageÑ actually mean very little. The schedule has been weak. But, as UC Davis head coach Bob Biggs points out, it would be […]

UCD tries to figure out Jags

Enterprise staff writer The numbers South Alabama has put up over the past two years are impressive. In winning all 13 games theyÕve played, the Jaguars are averaging 46.4 points and 437.4 total yards per game, while allowing opponents only 5.5 points and 214.1 yards each contest. But the competition South Alabama, a second-year program, […]

AggiesÕ plan falls short against UCSB

Enterprise staff writer Scoring opportunities are always going to be limited against a quality soccer team, so when they come, they canÕt be squandered. Despite successfully executing its plan to counterattack on Wednesday against visiting UC Santa Barbara, the UC Davis men were unable to make the most of their six shots. The Aggies held […]

Players-turned-coaches guide UCD

Enterprise staff writer Tim Plough hosted Sean Creadick on his recruiting visit to UC Davis in 2005, and the pair spent two years as teammates for the Aggies. Fast-forward to 2010 and the relationship between the now former teammates has changed, not because they wanted it to but because it was necessary. Creadick is a […]

TÕBirds end skid vs. Cal Poly

Enterprise staff writer Southern Utah entered Saturday having lost to Cal Poly in each of the past nine seasons, a streak that spanned four different head coaches. The Thunderbirds didnÕt just end the nine-game skid to the Mustangs with their 20-7 win in Cedar City, Utah, but took control of the Great West Conference race […]

ShawleeÕs goal is golden for UCD

Enterprise staff writer The UC Davis menÕs soccer team hasnÕt done a very good job of taking its chances early in games this year, and head coach Dwayne Shaffer wouldnÕt mind if his team learned the trait. But as long as the Aggies continue to end up on the right side of the scoreline, Shaffer […]

Ags use bye to heal up

Enterprise staff writer Every college football team has a bye week at some point during the season. On the heels of two straight victories Ñ including a 17-13 win over South Dakota in the Great West opener Ñ UC Davis was off on Saturday. Aggie head coach Bob Biggs saw positives and negatives about the […]

DHS girls polo does it with defense

Enterprise staff writer The Davis High girls water polo team proved Thursday that strong defense can be worth more than just keeping the opposing team off the scoreboard. The Blue Devils forced 14 turnovers against Buchanan, eight of which led directly to goals, in a 19-2 rout of the Bears at Schaal Aquatics Center on […]

Aggies need OT, but get a win

Enterprise staff writer UC Davis menÕs soccer coach Dwayne Schafer has wanted to have some home games at night for a while now, but the coachÕs hands had been tied because Aggie Soccer Field doesnÕt have lights. For 2010, Schafer decided to change venues to the turf at Aggie Stadium for a few home contests […]
