An exciting fourth-period comeback lifted the 15th-ranked Aggies over No. 13 Indiana, 8-7, on Sunday, giving the UC Davis women a ninth-place finish at UC San Diego’s Triton Invitational water polo tournament.

Earlier in the day, the Aggies (5-5) edged No. 16 UC Santa Barbara, 6-5.

Against the Hoosiers, UCD trailed 7-5 entering the fourth period, despite a hat trick from junior Keelia Houston, a DHS graduate. But the Aggie defense shut the door in the final quarter, while single goals from Elsie Fullerton — another former Blue Devil — Allyson Hansen and Erin Schlueter in the span of 75 seconds put UCD in the lead with just over two minutes to play.

For Hansen, it was her second goal of the contest.

In Sunday’s early match, the Aggies took control in the third period as Katrina Husted’s goal tied things at 4-4, Hansen scored the go-ahead tally and Husted made it 6-4 with 2:24 to go in the quarter.

UCD returns home to host the three-day Aggie Shootout this weekend, opening the event with a 4 p.m. Friday game against San Jose State.

UCD men’s tennis

After surrendering the doubles point, the Aggies dominated singles play to defeat UC Riverside, 6-1, on Saturday night. The Big West Conference opener for both teams was moved to Sacramento’s Spare Time Indoor Tennis Center because of rain.

In getting its first victory of the season, UCD (1-4) got four straight-set singles wins, and survived a pair of three-set marathons.

For the Aggies, senior Kyle Miller earned a 7-5, 6-1 win over Luis Gastao at the No. 1 spot, freshman Alec Adamson improved to 11-4 with his win at No. 2, while sophomore Brett Bacharach and freshman James Wade each got their 13th singles victory of the season to remain tied for the team lead.

The two other matches were more competitive as UCD senior Parker Kelley snapped a personal five-match losing skid with his 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 win at No. 5 and Bryce McKelvie posted a 7-5, 3-6, 11-9 victory at No. 6.

The Aggies are back on the court Saturday for a home doubleheader against Holy Names (9 a.m.) and St. Mary’s (1 p.m.).

DHS girls basketball

The second-place Lady Blue Devils have two home games this week, including a Valentine’s Day showdown with Delta Valley Conference leader Monterey Trail.

After Laguna Creek comes to The Cage at 7 p.m. Tuesday, DHS is inviting the public to pack the gym for Friday’s big game.

In addition to being a key contest in the league standing, Friday is Senior Night as well as Youth Basketball Night; youngsters wearing their team jerseys will get in free.

The adult discounted price for Friday’s event is $5 and the JV game starts at 5:30 p.m. with the varsity matchup beginning at 7 p.m.
