UCD roundup: Aggies win two in the pool

Senior attacker Carmen Eggert shot 8-for-8, including a career-high six goals against Harvard, to help 16th-ranked UC Davis win a Monday doubleheader by a combined score of 33-12 in nonconference women’s water polo action at Schaal Aquatics Center.

The Aggies (12-12) ended a five-game losing streak when they beat the Crimson, 18-9, and later turned back Fresno Pacific, 15-3.

Eggert scored five of her six goals against Harvard before halftime, and also finished with three assists and three steals. She then added another two scores in the first four minutes of play against the Sunbirds before subbing out for the day.

UCD sophomore Keelia Houston, a Davis High graduate, also tallied a hat trick in the early win over the Crimson, while Jessica Dunn, Danelle Kenny and Hannah Curran each netted two goals. Senior Riane Woods guarded the cage for the Aggies in the first half, tallying seven saves. Sophomore Jillian Wilding then took over net chores in the second half, adding two more blocks.

In the nightcap, Eggert, Dunn, Alex Rawlinson, Courtney Weddle and Paige Oreglia each scored two goals. Freshman Haley Cameron, another former Blue Devil, recorded a career-high five saves and added three assists in her first complete game as a UCD goalie.

Another pair of DHS grads teamed up for a goal against FPU when Elsie Fullerton converted a two-meter feed from Hailey Wright to start the third quarter.

The Aggies have a break for finals, then resume Big West play with home games against UC Irvine (March 29) and Long Beach State (March 30).

UCD baseball

Aggie third baseman Paul Politi had two hits and right-hander Evan Wolf pitched six solid innings, but host Seattle University was able to battle back from a two-run deficit and hold off UCD in the ninth to record a 3-2 nonconference win on Sunday.

The Aggies (8-12) scored single runs in the first and third innings and Wolf made them stand up until Seattle (8-12) was able to score twice in the sixth and again in the seventh for a 3-2 lead.

But in the final frame, catcher Cameron Olson’s one-out single gave UCD a chance. Seth Batty was hit by a pitch one out later and pinch hitter Tino Lipson walked to load the bases. However, Redhawks reliever Eric Yardley induced an infield grounder to retire the Aggies and record his third save.

UCD jumped out to a 1-0 lead early in the game when second baseman Steven Patterson hit a sacrifice fly to center, scoring designated hitter Mike Mazzara, who had singled. Mazzara then added a sac fly of his own two innings later, bringing in shortstop Evan Heptig, who had opened the frame with a double to right.

Meanwhile, Wolf helped keep Seattle in check, limiting the Redhawks to just one hit through the first five innings. He didn’t allow a runner into scoring position with less than two outs during that time and retired seven straight batters from the end of the third through the fifth innings.

But after tallying twice in the sixth, Seattle plated the winning run when the Aggies made a pair of throwing errors in the bottom of the seventh.

Politi had two hits to lead UCD, while Mazzara, Olson, center fielder Kevin Barker and Heptig each had one.

Relief pitcher Pat Hennessey took the loss, falling to 0-1 for the Aggies, who don’t play again until a road game next Monday at San Jose State.

UCD women’s tennis

The Aggies’ last Big West Conference road match of the season came down to the final singles matchup of the day, but host Cal State Northridge eventually prevailed, 4-3 on Sunday at the Matador Tennis Complex.

Though Megan Heneghan and Melissa Kobayakawa teamed up to capture their doubles match for UCD (6-9, 2-2), CSUN (8-3, 3-2) won the point with two victories of their own.

Once singles play began, Aggie Ellie Edles quickly tied the match at 1-1 with a 6-1, 6-2 win at No. 5. Heneghan (at No. 1) and Lauren Curry (No. 3) also got singles victories, but Jessica Warren got the Matadors’ clinching win at No. 6.

UCD is now off until heading to Stanislaus State for a nonconference road match on Saturday, March 30. The Aggies follow that up with six straight Big West home contests to end the regular season.
