Local standout Adam Jahn, who is on loan from the San Jose Earthquakes, scored a goal in the 70th minute Saturday night as the Sacramento Republic FC beat the visiting Orange County Blues FC in front of 17,414 fans at Hughes Stadium.
Republic FC (3-3-1) also got a first-half goal from Thomas Stewart, on a ball that appeared to be a cross but bounced in off the far post.
After Orange County tied things up just after halftime, Jahn — who lived in El Macero while prepping at Jesuit, then played at Stanford — scored his second goal in as many games.
Spencer Henderson’s two-out RBI single brought home Kevin Barker with the tying run in the ninth inning and Adam Young came through with the game-winning, two-run double in the 10th to lift the Aggies over Cal State Northridge on Sunday at Matador Field.
With the victory, UCD (19-24, 5-13 Big West Conference) matched both win totals from last season, with 11 contests remaining in 2014.
Held to just three hits in eight shutout innings by Matador starter Jordan Johnson, the Aggies found a way to rally against closer Shay Maltese (2-3) in the ninth.
After getting swept, 5-4 and 10-5, in a Saturday doubleheader, the Aggies scored eight unanswered runs to rally for a 9-6 victory at Cal State Fullerton in Sunday’s series finale.
Down 3-0, UCD (18-31, 7-11 Big West) got its comeback started when Christina Guidry smashed her first career home run, a two-run shot, in the top of the third inning.
The Aggies followed with six runs in the fourth, highlighted by a Lauryn Saunders dinger.
Later in the game, Amy Nunez also went yard for the Aggies, who will host St. Mary’s for a Wednesday (1 p.m.) doubleheader.
Sacramento just needed one more out — and it never got it.
With the River Cats leading by one with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, El Paso’s Jake Lemmerman hit a walk-off grand slam to hand Sacramento a 13-10 loss on Monday night at Southwest University Park.
Despite Michael Taylor’s fourth home run and four RBIs and Jake Goebbert’s fifth homer and three RBIs, the Cats couldn’t avoid the sweep.
