STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The high-scoring season continued for the UC Davis women’s lacrosse team on Tuesday, as it posted 19 goals in a win over Wagner.

The 19-4 victory represented the sixth time this year that the Aggies have scored 19 or more times in one game. UCD leads the nation in scoring offense at 18.25 goals per game.

Senior Christina Corsa led the way with five goals and three assists, while Gina Hoffmire, Vannessa Jamison and Anna Geissbuhler also performed hat tricks to help the Aggies (7-1) win their seventh straight game.

Corsa scored three goals in the first half, helping her team craft an 11-2 lead at the break, then added two goals and two assists in the second period. Hoffmire chipped in four goals and an assist, while Jamison and Geissbuhler each posted 3-1-4 offensive charts. Sophomore Hannah Mirza scored two goals and won six draw controls, continuing her school record-breaking pace in the that category.

UCD dominated the Seahawks(1-6) in shots (35-11), ground balls (19-11) and draw controls (17-8), and never surrendered the lead. Mirza scored two goals and Geissbuhler had a goal and assist in a run as the Aggies took control with a 6-0 advantage just 6:28 into the game. Later, Corsa scored four goals in a 7-0 spurt to stretch the margin to 14-2 with 22:36 remaining in the second half.

The Seahawks managed only one shot in the final 13 minutes of the game.

UCD continues its road trip with a game at Iona at noon on Wednesday.

Junior DHS graduate Tyler Raber finished in a tie for 19th place, after shooting 2-over in the final round to finish at 1-over 217, leading the Aggies to a 9-over 891 and a ninth-place finish on Tuesday at the Oregon Duck Invitational.

Raber was UCD’s leading scorer through the first 36 holes Monday, shooting a first-round 72 and  a second-round score of 71, both of which were team lows. The former Blue Devil started his third round with a steady front nine, shooting par on the first seven straight holes before carding a birdie on the par-5 16th hole. He started his back nine at 1-under, but bogeyed three straight holes to finish at 2-over 74.

The Aggies also received a 4-over 220 from Matt Hansen who tied for 29th overall. The freshman shot a team-best 72 in his third round, with a front nine that included four pars and a birdie on the last five holes. He continued with a back nine that was highlighted by six even holes and two birdies.

UCD’s Austin Graham tied for 51st at 10-over 226 and was followed by Andrew Haggen (tied for 63rd) and Daniel Covrig.

Top-ranked Oklahoma State won the team title, finishing at 16-under, while Washington’s Chris Williams received medalist honors with a 9-under 207 after shooting two sub-70 rounds.

The Aggies return to action next month at the Cowboy Classic, hosted by Wyoming at the Talking Stick Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz.

UCD women’s golf

Behind 11th-place finish from sophomore Amy Simanton and sophomore Demi Runas in 16th, the 18th-ranked Aggies ended the Battle for Rancho Bernardo, hosted by San Diego State, in sixth place.

The 54-hole event was one of UCD’s toughest tournaments of the year as it was facing a half-dozen teams ranked in the top 10 and 16 in the top 50. The Aggies, who fired a 308 in the final round, finished ahead of No. 8 Arizona, ninth-ranked Arizona State and No. 13 Cal by carding a 45-over 909 at the three-day event.

Seventh-ranked Purdue capturing the title with a score of 15-over 879.

Simanton posted her third straight top-15 finish for UCD after her round of 2-over 74 on Tuesday, tying for 11th at 5-over 221. Runas tied for 16th at 8-over 224 by shooting 74 for the second time this week. Freshman Jessica Chulya tied for 47th at 16-over, Alice Kim tied for 51st at 17-over and Chelsea Stelzmiller tied for 75th at 26-over.

Purdue’s Laura Gonzalez carded a final-round 68 to earn medalist honors.

The Aggies began their final round on the 10th hole and Simanton started well. She had pars over the first six holes, and then balanced a subsequent bogey with a birdie on the par-5 18th to make her turn even. She then played her last nine holes two shots over par.

Runas was 4-over at her turn but played a strong front nine of the course with two birdies and seven pars to match Simanton for the Aggies’ low score of the day. Kim shot a 79, Stelzmiller had an 81 and Chulya had a birdie during her round of 82 on Tuesday.

UCD continued a season where it has finished sixth or better in all but one event.

The Aggies will be back on the course next month when they co-host (with Oregon) the inaugural Pacific Coast Intercollegiate at The Ocean Course at Half Moon Bay Golf Links.
