Dashiell MacNamara scored his first goal in a UC Davis men’s soccer uniform 28 minutes into Friday’s match against No. 25 UC Irvine, then teammate Matt Wiesenfarth scored his second goal in as many games with three minutes remaining to help the near-capacity crowd at Aggie Soccer Field celebrate a 2-0 victory over the Anteaters in this season’s Big West opener for each team.

The victory is the Aggies’ second straight over a top-25 foe after beating then-No. 25 New Mexico on Sept. 27. UCD (5-4-1, 1-0 Big West) will face its third consecutive ranked opponent on Sunday when No. 6 Northridge comes to town at 3 p.m. for a rematch of last season’s Big West Men’s Soccer Tournament championship match.

By earning his fourth clean slate of the season on Friday, Aggie goalkeeper Omar Zeenni now sits alongside Nic Platter (2000-03) with a program-high 17 shutouts. By finishing with four saves against the Anteaters, Zeenni also tied Platter with 195 career saves.

Just under 30 minutes into the match, UCD head coach Dwayne Shaffer inserted MacNamara into the game on the dead-ball situation just before an Aggie throw in. Shaffer’s decision reaped immediate dividends when MacNamara scored his first career goal 23 seconds later.

Davis High graduate Ryan Gross threw the ball in and earned his first assist of the year when MacNamara one-timed it into the goal.

That 1-0 Aggie advantage held until the final moments of the game when Wiesenfarth singlehandedly beat UCI’s backline on a counterattack, initially created by an Anteater turnover, to create a one-on-one scoring opportunity. Generated solely by the junior forward through his deft footwork in Irvine’s penalty area, Wiesenfarth iced the game with a powerful shot that beat Breslin near post to double UCD’s advantage.

UCD women’s volleyball

Valerie Brian and Devon Damelio had 11 kills apiece, Mary Schroeder added 10 and the UC Davis women’s volleyball team won in four game at UC Riverside on Saturday.

Allie Wegener posted 14 digs and Jenny Woolway had 13 in the Aggies’ 25-21, 18-25, 25-14, 26-24 victory.

With the win, and a five-set loss at Cal State Fullerton on Friday, UCD is now 9-7 overall and 1-1 in Big West Conference play.

Against the Titans, Damelio tallied 14 kills, a career-high 24 digs and seven blocks for the Aggies, who fell 25-16, 25-11, 25-27, 21-25, 15-11.

Also playing well for UCD were Katie Quinn (10 kills and a .364 hitting average), Woolway (21 digs) and Kaylin Squyres (16 kills and 12 digs). Junior libero Megan Lancaster missed her career high by one dig, finishing with 19.

UCD cross country

Aggie senior Sarah Sumpter placed second among 156 finishers in the women’s 5-kilometer race, while UCD sophomore Brandon Pugh took seventh in the 134-runner men’s 8K field to pace the local women’s and men’s squads on Friday at the Sacramento State Inter-Regional Jamboree at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex.

The Aggie women finished third with 88 points, behind only UCLA (77) and Cal Poly (78), while the UCD men placed fourth.

Sumpter held off a late charge by UCLA junior Kelsey Smith near the finish chute to cross in 16 minutes, 36 seconds. Katie Fry and Anna Welch were the next Aggies through in 12th (17:11) and 15th (17:16), respectively.

Senior Shannon Harcus finished among the next pack in 28th overall with freshman Hannah Kirkegaard (31st) rounding out the UCD scorers.

Pugh was the lone Aggie runner in the front pack during the final stretch of the men’s race, crossing in 23:48 to take seventh. Junior Trevor Halsted, a Davis High graduate, came through with the next group at 24:09 for 19th place, then junior Will Melton finished 27th in 24:33. Sophomore Jordon Rushing and senior Grayson Hough, another former Blue Devil, finished neck-and-neck in 30th and 31st place with times of 24:42 to complete the UCD scoring.

The Inter-Regional Jamboree serves as a preview for the NCAA West Regional, which is held at the same course and featuring many of the same teams as the Nov. 15 event.
