Four UC Davis men’s water polo players posted hat tricks to help the 13th-ranked Aggies blow away Fresno Pacific, 19-7, to wrap up the Aggie Shootout on Sunday.

In the win, UCD (5-6) raced out to a 10-1 lead at Schaal Aquatics Center.

Aggie junior Chris Richardson and sophomore Alex Bagadasarian contributed three goals each, as did freshmen Max Vigeant and Zoltan Lazar. Junior center Teddy Nicholson, a Davis High graduate, added another two tallies while Tennyson May, Jacob Ley, Evan MacCarthy and former Blue Devils Trevor Allen and Michael Wright had one score each.

Richardson was the first to record his hat trick, scoring on a 6-on-5 chance midway through the first quarter, then converting off two assists from senior Bernie Rogers in the second. The three goals lifts Richardson’s career total to 129, moving him into eighth place in school history.

UCD field hockey

A quartet of Aggies contributed goals on Sunday as UCD defeated Vermont, 4-1, in a nonconference match at Ball State University’s Turf Field in Muncie, Ind.

Playing their third straight game on BSU’s home field, the Aggies improved to 2-7 while sending the Catamounts to 0-10.

With the exception of a brief 10-minute respite, both teams were forced to deal with a strong downpour throughout the game. Due to the weather, the squads played aggressively — each hoping to record that crucial first goal and force its opponent to scramble to find offense in the tough conditions.

The early charge paid off for UCD when Danielle Koehne scored her fifth goal of the season just five minutes into the contest.

Six minutes later, off one of the Aggies’ eight first-half penalty corners, Jamie Garcia punched in a loose ball for her second goal of the year and a 2-0 lead for her team.

Though Vermont cut the advantage in half with a goal just before intermission, UCD’s Sophia Lisaius made it 3-1 when she scored a second-half goal against a school located just a short drive away from her hometown of Warren, Vt.

Kayla Wigney added another insurance goal — her first as an Aggie — at the 69-minute mark.

Armed with an early lead, UCD goalkeeper Danielle Herrington recorded four saves Sunday.

The Aggies, who outshot the Catamounts 26-12, now return home and will open NorPac play on Sunday with a 6 p.m. game against Stanford at Aggie Stadium.

UCD men’s soccer

An outstanding performance Friday by senior goalkeeper Omar Zeenni, in one of the most difficult soccer environments in the nation, helped the Aggies defeat nationally ranked New Mexico, 2-1, and earned him the Big West Men’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week.

Zeenni stopped a season-high seven Lobo shot attempts including a penalty kick from New Mexico’s Michael Calderon in the 25th minute.

“Omar making that save, at that point of the game, gave the team a lot of confidence,” said UCD head coach Dwayne Shaffer.

Zeenni earned his 25th career victory in net, moving him to within one of the Big West’s all-time top-10 list.

DHS girls volleyball

The Blue Devils are inviting fans to wear blue and help the team set a new attendance mark on Thursday at Break the Record Night in The Cage at DHS.

DHS is opening its Delta Valley Conference schedule by hosting Franklin that evening, with the junior varsity match set to begin at 5 p.m. The varsity contest follows at 6 p.m.
