UCD BRIEF: Aggies scare Stanford

By
October 3, 2010 |

The UC Davis field hockey team took No. 16 Stanford into overtime on Saturday, but couldnÕt come away with a win, as the Cardinal prevailed, 2-1, Aggie Stadium.

After an early Aggie goal by Nadia Namdari, a 1-1 halftime tie held up through a scoreless second half. Stanford, however, scored an overtime goal in the 74th minute of the NorPac

contest.

UCD (3-5, 0-4) controlled the action in the opening 10 minutes, outshooting Stanford 4-0 and holding a 2-1 advantage in penalty corners. The Aggies managed to break free in the ninth minute, when Namdari scored her fifth goal.

Namdari created the goal with her speed, streaking past the Cardinal defenders and getting around the goalie for an open cage score.

Stanford (7-3, 4-1) took control of the possession from there, with 14 unanswered shots through the end of the first half. The Cardinal converted on one of those opportunities when Katie Mitchell found the net in the 28th minute.

The second half proved to be a stalemate, with neither team converting on a goal. The Cardinal held a slight 7-5 advantage in shots, while Lauren Sawvelle kept UCD in the game with four saves.

Emily Mecke had one final shot in the closing seconds of regulation, but another Stanford save brought the game into overtime.

Stanford continued to be the aggressor in overtime and converted on its first opportunity, when Stephanie Byrne made the game-winning goal.

Sawvelle played the entire game in goal for the Aggies, recording eight saves.

UCD will be back on the road next weekend, playing three games on an East Coast swing, starting with Northwestern on Thursday at 1 p.m.

UCD menÕs soccer

Peter McGlynn scored two minutes into the second overtime period and 17th-ranked UC Santa Barbara edged the Aggies, 2-1, on Saturday night in a Big West matchup at Harder Stadium in Santa Barbara.

The match was the league opener for UCD, which is 2-7 overall.

The Gauchos (4-3-2, 1-1) took a 1-0 lead with a goal only nine minutes in, as James KiffeÕs cross found Michael Nonni for a header shot into the right corner of the net.

The Aggies countered with a goal in the 33rd minute from Lance Patterson, his fifth of the season. UCD earned a corner kick, which Nick Grigoriev sent into the box towards Alex Aguiar, but AguiarÕs header attempt was blocked by a UCSB defender. The rebound, however, found a waiting Patterson who sent a header of his own into the back of the net.

The Gauchos outshot the Aggies, 8-1, in the second half, but failed to score and regulation ended with the score knotted at one goal apiece.

The teams remained even through the first overtime period, before McGlynnÕs game-winner in the 102nd minute gave UCSB the win.

Patterson led UCD with two shots, while Grigoriev, Aguiar and Alex Henry each registered one and goalie Ryan McCowan had two saves.

The Aggies return home for a matchup with No. 12 UC Irvine on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The Aggies dropped their initial Big West contest on Friday when they fell, 2-1, to Cal State Northridge on Friday at Matador Soccer Field in Northridge.

Bridget Berman scored the lone goal for UCD (5-4-1, 0-1), which evened the score at 1-1 in the second half, but Melissa Fernandez later scored the game-winner for the Matadors (6-5, 1-0).

CSUN managed to light up the scoreboard early in the first half, when Farryn Townley converted in the eighth minute. And despite outshooting the Matadors 8-7 in the opening half, the

Aggies couldnÕt find the back of the net before the break.

UCD struck back in the second half, with BermanÕs goal in the 48th minute. After gathering a Lisa Kemp cross, Berman sent in a shot off the post to tie the game.

But Fernandez managed to answer in the 64th minute, giving the Matadors a 2-1

advantage.

Kathleen Brandl and Maria Magana split time in goal for the Aggies, with each recording a pair of saves.
