Aggie soccer closes out season with 1-0 win

November 1, 2010 |

The UC Davis womenÕs soccer team ended its season on a good note, taking a 1-0 win Sunday over Long Beach State at Aggie Soccer Field. Lisa Kemp scored the only goal of the game in the second half, her fifth score of the year, which proved to be the game-winner.

Samantha Faber played her final game as an Aggie and was celebrated on Senior Day, after tallying three shots for the game. UCD completed the season with a 7-9-2 overall record and a 2-5-1 mark in Big West play. LBSU finished the regular season with a 12-5-2 overall record and a 5-2-1 mark in the conference.

The first half started with five unanswered shots for LBSU, who controlled much of the early action. UCD responded with some aggressive play, advancing into 49er territory and firing off four shots. An offsides call prevented the AggiesÕ best scoring opportunity, as LBSU took back most of the possession for the remainder of the first half.

The limited scoring opportunities for both teams in the first period resulted in a 0-0 score at the intermission, with the 49ers holding a 13-4 shot advantage.

UC Davis had a pair of looks early in the second half, but couldnÕt find the back of the net. LSBU took over possession from there, staying in Aggie territory while posting three shots on goal.

After the Aggies survived the 49er attack, they broke free for the only score of the game. Kemp took a cross on the right side from Keile Argente, before finding the upper left corner of the net in the 69th minute.

Despite being out shot 23-10 for the game, the UC Davis defense held up and finished with the final 1-0 win.

Maria Magana started in goal for the Aggies and earned the win after eight saves. For the 49ers, it was Kaitlyn Gustaves who received the loss after one save and one goal allowed.

ÒItÕs a great way to end the season,Ó said head coach MaryClaire Robinson. ÒToday we created some great chances and we finished one. IÕm most proud of the fight.

ÒI thought the fight today for the whole 90 minutes was excellent. Our defensive performance was fantastic. The work-rate and the attitude was absolutely fantastic this year. ThatÕs due to great leadership and a lot of heart from the young ones.Ó

The game was bittersweet for coach Robinson, who was pleased with the play of Faber, but sad to see her go.

ÒSam had a big injury last year. She has provided a great piece of leadership for our injured kids this year,Ó Robinson said. ÒBesides her leadership and her leading on the field, she has been a very calming and mature presence with our injured kids. ItÕs something that has been very important and very comforting. ItÕs fantastic to send her off with win.Ó

Coach Robinson also addressed how a win to end the season helps to build for next year.

ÒIt helps people understand that we have been competing,Ó Robinson said. ÒWe have been in every game that we played in this year, besides one. Despite the fact that those games didnÕt convert into wins, our ability to compete has been fantastic.

ÒWe need to show the young ones that early and often. ItÕs a nice reminder that we can compete with anyone. It puts us in a positive place as we build and weÕre building for next year already.Ó

SundayÕs game marked the final contest of the 2010 season for UCD, with only the top four teams in the Big West advancing to the conference tournament. Prior to SundayÕs contest, Long Beach State had clinched the No. 2 seed heading into the Big West tournament. The 49ers will now play Cal State Northridge at 3 p.m. Thursday in the first round of the conference tournament.
