BREIFS: Aggies season ends in Riverside

By
November 3, 2010 |

\n

UC Riverside scored in the fifth minute of action and the Highlander defense held off the UC Davis men\’s soccer team the rest of the way in a 1-0 win on Wednesday night in a crucial Big West Conference matchup at UCR Soccer Stadium.

\n

With the loss, the Aggies fell to 6-12 overall and 4-6 in the Big West, while UC Riverside improved to 6-10-1 overall and 3-6 in league play.

\n

The UCD loss, combined with Cal State Fullerton\’s loss to Cal Poly drops the Aggies into a tie for fifth with the Titans in the conference standings. Just four teams qualify for the Big West tournament and UCD does not have any more games to gain points and vault into fourth.

\n

The Highlanders goal came from Cesar Diaz at the 4:07 mark, after Riverside goalkeeper Nick Goldreich launched a goal kick downfield that found its way into the Aggie penalty box.

\n

UCD outshot UC Riverside 13-8, including nine second-half attempts, but was unable to find the back of the net. John Joslin led the Aggie offense with four shots, two of which were on frame, while Elliott Hord had two shots. Omar Zeenni recorded three saves in goal, as UCD season comes to a close.

UCD men\’s golf

\n

Austin Graham, Andrew Haggen and Matt Hansen each carded four birdies on their way to respective 2-under 69\’s on Wednesday as the Aggies finished fifth at the Stockton Sports Commission Pacific Invitational at the Brookside Country Club.

\n

UCD shot a 4-under 280 team score in the final round, just one shot behind yesterday\’s outstanding effort, finishing in the same position it began the day. Tyler Raber, a Davis High

\n

graduate, fired a 74, while Tim Honeycutt had a 75 to round out the Aggie scoring.

\n

Host Pacific ran away with the 54-hole tournament — the last of the fall for UCD — winning by 19 shots over No. 36 Oregon State.

\n

Haggen and Hansen each made their turn to the back nine at 1-under after picking up two birdies and a bogey apiece over their first nine holes. Each of them had another birdie and bogey on the back before finishing with birdies late in their rounds.

\n

Hansen tied for 16th at 1-over 214, while Haggen tied for 21st at 2-over. Graham finished in a tie for 10th, doing so with a strong back nine in which he had three birdies and six pars.

\n

Raber played his front nine event and had his third birdie of the day on the back nine, helping him come in with a 73 and tie for 26th at 3-over 216.

UCD cross country

\n

Aggie Jonathan Peterson was named the Big West Men\’s Athlete of the Year, while UCD head coach Drew Wartenburg was voted as Men\’s Coach of the Year, on Wednesday when the conference awards were handed out.

\n

Peterson, a junior out of Clovis, won the men\’s 8K race at Saturday\’s Big West Championships, clocking in at 23:40.2. His time was 17 seconds faster than the second-place finisher and marks the second-fastest 8K time in the conference to date.

\n

The individual title is the second straight for the Aggies after Sarah Sumpter won the women\’s crown in 2009.

\n

Peterson led a contingent of three UCD runners in the top six as the Aggie men claimed their first ever Big West title.

\n

Individually, Peterson has won four out of five races in 2010.

\n

In his third year at the helm, Wartenburg is the first UCD cross country mentor to win Coach of the Year accolades in the program\’s Division I and Big West Conference history.
