BRIEFS: UCD drops overtime thriller

By
October 28, 2010 |

FULLERTON Ñ UC Davis freshman Alex Aguiar scored the equalizer in the 69th minute to send the game into overtime, but Cal State Fullerton put away a goal with three minutes left in the extra period to grab a 2-1 menÕs soccer victory in a crucial Big West matchup on Wednesday at Titan Stadium.

The win gave the Titans (6-8-2, 4-4) sole possession of third place in the conference standings, while the Aggies (5-11, 3-5) dropped to fourth. The top four teams advance to the Big West tournament.

UCD freshman goalkeeper Omar Zeenni held Fullerton scoreless until the 57th minute when a hard cross from Celso Alvarez bounced off ZeenniÕs chest. Michael Denny was on hand for the Titans and knocked the loose ball into the net for a 1-0 Fullerton lead.

Aguiar answered 10 minutes later, when Dan Reese sent a pass over to the unmarked Aggie freshman, whose shot from 25 yards out sailed past goalkeeper Bryan Escalante and into the upper left corner of the goal.

After that, the match stayed scoreless almost all the way through the first overtime, until Nick Posthuma gave the Titans a win with three minutes left. Posthuma took a cross from Alvarez, then took a shot from the corner of the penalty box that got past Zeenni.

Zeenni finished with three saves for UCD, and Jason Santos and Lance Patterson led the Aggies with three shots each.

UCD hosts Cal Poly for Senior Day at noon on Saturday at Aggie Soccer Field.
