The UC Davis women’s lacrosse team got into the win column on Saturday, and this one wasn’t close.

Senior Gina Hoffmire and sophomore Anna Geissbuhler each scored five goals to lead the Aggies to a 21-5 win over Fresno State in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation action at Aggie Stadium.

The victory put UCD at 1-1, both overall and in conference, while the Bulldogs slipped to 0-2 for the season and in MPSF play.

Hoffmire and Geissbuhler were among five Aggies with multiple goals. Senior Christina Corsa and sophomore Hannah Mirza each tallied hat tricks, while sophomore Elizabeth Datino added two goals and two assists. Hoffmire and defender Vannessa Jamison matched Datino’s assist total as well.

For Fresno State, freshman midfielder Rachel Minarovich scored three goals, while sophomore Amanda Cross chipped two goals and an assist.

UCD never trailed in the game, drawing first blood on Corsa’s successful eight-meter attempt just 71 seconds into the contest. The Bulldogs equalized when Natalie Harrington grabbed the next draw and Cross finished the drive, but Hoffmire had three goals and an assist in a run of five unanswered for the Aggies during the subsequent eight minutes. Corsa provided another goal and assist, each igniting 3-0 runs, to send her team to the break with an 11-3 lead.

Geissbuhler punched in three goals after intermission, including two in a 7-0 spurt to finish the game. Overall, UCD outshot its guest by a 45-6 margin, broke nine of Fresno State’s 24 clear attempts and committed 12 fewer turnovers (18-to-30).

The Bulldogs, for their part, managed to hit 5-of-6 in the shooting column, including 2-for-2 on eight-meter attempts. In comparison, the Aggies managed only 3-for-11 in free-position opportunities.

Jamison, a returning all-conference defender for UCD, paced all players with five cased turnovers while matching freshman Meghan Jordan with four draw controls.

UCD is back on the field Friday for a 3 p.m. home matchup with Saint Mary’s.

UCD women’s tennis

The Aggies claimed the doubles point early and won five of the six singles matches in straight sets on Saturday afternoon, on their way to a 7-0 win over host Cal State Fullerton in UCD’s Big West opener at the Titan Courts.

The victory pushed the Aggies’ record to 6-2 on the season, while the Titans fell to 2-7 overall and 0-2 in conference play.

UCD won two out of three in doubles, before No. 1 Megan Heneghan, No. 2 Dahra Zamudio, No. 3 Ellie Edles, No. 4 Kelly Chui and No. 5. Lauren Curry all won singles matches for the Aggies without dropping a set. Melissa Kobayakawa needed three sets but still picked up a win for UCD at No. 6.

UCD softball

The Aggies dropped an 11-4 contest to Northwestern in their first game at the San Diego Classic I on Friday at the SDSU Softball Stadium. UCD’s next scheduled contest on Friday and two more on Saturday were rained out as the weather has forced changes to the event slate.

The Aggies are now scheduled to play back-to-back games today beginning at 11:30 a.m. with a matchup against San Diego. Sacramento State will be UCD’s second opponent.

In what turned out to be the only game of the day for the Aggies on Saturday, UCD battled back from an early deficit before Northwestern, a member of the Big 10, pulled away for the victory.

The Wildcats jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first inning, with Mari Majam and Meghan Lamberth each sending out RBI doubles to do the damage. The Aggies went with a pitching change from there, bringing in Alex Holmes to close out the frame. UCD made it 6-1 in the bottom of the first, thanks to Holmes’ lead-off hit and run scored.

After settling down on defense, the Aggies made the game interesting in the fourth and fifth innings. UCD started the bottom of the fourth with a walk and a double, followed by a RBI single that cut the deficit to 6-3. In the fifth, Kelly Schulze had a solo home run to pull the Aggies to within two.

Despite the burst of runs, UCD’s rally was cut short by Northwestern in the final two innings. The Wildcats took a run back in the top of the sixth, before adding four runs in the top of the seventh to put the game away.

Despite the end result, Aggie head coach Karen Yoder was happy with her team’s effort: ”I was proud how the team responded after a rocky first inning.”

Jessica Thweatt took the loss for UCD and dropped to 2-2 on the young season. Holmes pitched the final 5 2/3 innings and allowed 12 hit and five earned runs, while striking out six.

UCD women’s golf

Freshman Jessica Chulya was just 1-over and tied for third after 10 holes of the Peg Barnard Invitational at Stanford before the tournament was suspended by rain midway through the first round on Saturday with the Aggies tied for third.

Chulya and UCD teammate Alice Kim each completed 10 holes of the 36-hole event’s first round, while Amy Simanton and Chelsea Stelzmiller each finished nine, and Demi Runas completed eight.

The 10 teams were to complete the first round beginning at 8 a.m. today, before playing the final round immediately after.

Cal, ranked ninth by Golfstat, is unofficially 2-over par during the first round and has a nine-shot lead over Washington State. The Aggies, ranked 25th, are in a four-way logjam for third with No. 21 Colorado, No. 27 Stanford and Santa Clara, just one shot behind the Cougars.

Unofficially, Chulya is tied for third, Kim and Runas are tied for 18th at 3-over, Simanton is 5-over and tied for 43rd and Stelzmiller is 6-over and tied for 51st.

UCD baseball

The Aggies’ season opener will be delayed yet another day after heavy rains in the Sacramento area on Friday night. The game, which was to be played Saturday at Sacramento State, has been rescheduled for Monday at 2 p.m., and will now be the final game of the series.

The three-game set will begin today with a doubleheader at UCD’s Dobbins Stadium starting at 11 a.m. and will be followed by Monday’s single game at John Smith Field at Sacramento State.

Live audio and Gametracker will be available for both games today, while an Internet-only broadcast of Monday’s game also will be available at http://www.ucdavisaggies.com.

Today’s doubleheader will mark the 2011 season opener for both teams.

UCD field hockey

The Aggies have announced their spring schedule, a six-game campaign to be played over the next two months. UCD is entering its third year as a Division I varsity squad after significant growth on and off the field in its second year of existence.

The Aggies finished 7-10 overall with a 2-4 mark in NorPac play in 2010, improving on their record from the previous season by  four games and getting their first-ever wins in conference competition. UCD also recently announced a competitive recruiting class of six incoming players.

As the Aggies prepare for the 2011 fall season, they will use six games to tune up in the spring. UCD will get back into competition at California on March 5 in a 4 p.m. contest. The next three games will be part of an All Day Play Day at Stanford on April 3, where the Aggies will take on Stanford, Cal and Pacific.

The only home spring game of the season will be on April 8 at 6:30 p.m., when UCD will play Pacific at Aggie Stadium. The spring season concludes on May 7 when the Aggies travel to face Stanford at 7 p.m.
