Sophomore Mary Doyle scored on an 8-meter with 17 seconds remaining in regulation to give the UC Davis women’s lacrosse team an 8-7 comeback win over Cal in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation matchup on Saturday at Aggie Stadium.

UCD’s first victory over the Golden Bears since 2010 pushed its record to 3-0 on the season.

Junior Elizabeth Landry scored four goals in the win, including three as part of the Aggies’ 5-0 run in the second half. Doyle tallied twice, both after intermission while single goals came from UCD freshman Melissa Kellan and junior Troy Cragen.

Cragen’s goal, her first in two years, equalized the game at 6-6 after Cal had taken a 5-1 lead in the opening half. The Aggies gave up four unanswered goals following an early 1-1 tie.

Landry cut the deficit to 5-2 with her 8-meter goal in the 30th minute, but the Bears pushed they lead back to four in the 42nd minute.

UCD answered with a flurry of goals during a five-minute span. Landry and Doyle each connected on unassisted drives in the 46th minute, then Landry struck again in the 49th before Cragen netted the game-tying goal in the 50th.

Landry finally gave the Aggies their first lead with yet another free-position conversion with 7:26 remaining, but Cal quickly tied the contest at 7-7, setting up Doyle’s game-winner.

Junior goalkeeper Kai Murphy posted eight saves for UCD, which will host Siena on Monday at 7 p.m.

UCD women’s tennis

The Aggies got a pair of doubles wins to capture the first point of the match, but UC Santa Barbara sweep the singles contests to take 6-1 Big West Conference decision.

Layla Sanders and Nicole Koehly combined for UCD’s first doubles win (8-1), then the Aggies (5-6, 1-2) clinched the point when Megan Heneghan teamed with Melissa Kobayakawa for an 8-5 triumph.

The Aggies will complete their road trip on Sunday when they facing Cal Poly at 2 p.m.

UCD men’s tennis

The Aggies claimed the doubles point to jump out to the early lead, but host Fresno State responded with wins in five of the six singles matches Saturday to defeat UCD, 5-2, in a nonconference dual match at Spalding G. Wathen Tennis Center.

Aggie duos of Alec Adamson/Adam Levie (at No. 1) and James Wade/Parker Kelley (at No. 2 spot) posted doubles wins of 8-2 and 8-4, respectively to give their team the point. For Adamson and Levie, the win was their fourth straight as they improved to 16-6 overall on the season.

However, Wade was the only UCD player to claim a singles win on the day. He rallied back from a close loss in the opening set to defeat Eric Komati, 5-7, 7-5, 10-4, at the No. 3 position. Wade won for the seventh time in his last eight matches, improving to 18-6 overall and 9-2 in dual matches.

The Aggies open a five-match homestand on Sunday at 10 a.m., hosting a doubleheader at the Marya Welch Tennis Center. UCD has Montana at 10 a.m. before taking on Sonoma State at 3 p.m.

UCD track and field

The Aggie women won five events on Saturday, including the clinching 4×400 relay, to win the Cal Opener quadrangular meet by two points, while the UCD men captured seven events to take second.

The Aggies scored seven points with their relay win, finishing with 116 points and top host Cal (114). The Bears scored 157.5 points to capture first place on the men’s side with the Aggies posting 132.

Marcus Johnson (100, 200) was a double-winner for the men while Karl Moran (110HH), Alex Grigoriev (800), Brandon Greenberg (shot put), DHS graduate Trevor Halsted (3,000) and the 4×400 relay also finished first. Raquel Lambdin (3,000), Cekarri Nixon (400), Catherine Li (triple jump), Kira Rienecker (100H) and the 4×400 relay were victorious for the women.

The women’s competition essentially turned into a dual meet between UCD and Cal as they exchanged wins throughout the day. They were tied with 109 points through 18 events before the Aggies’ 3:46.14 win in the meet-ending 4×400 relay.

UCD women’s gymnastics

Sophomore Stephanie Stamates won the floor exercise competition with a 9.850 while senior Anna Shumaker used runner-up finishes on both beam and floor to claim the all-around title at 39.075 as the Aggies scored 194.800 on Friday in a Mountain Pacific Sports Federation triangular meet at Sacramento State.

The Hornets won the meet with a 195.275, while a short-handed Alaska Anchorage finished third at 188.550.

Stamates’ floor effort edged Shumaker and Hornet Kailey Hansen, who shared second place with 9.825 scores.

Stamates and Shumaker later tied for second place on beam at 9.750 and Shumaker matched teammate Katy Nogaki for third place on vault at 9.800.

Junior Lisa Wiktorski led UCD on the uneven bars at 9.825, good for a tie for second place, while Dani Judal (9.800), junior Kala DeFrancesco (9.775) and freshman Yonni Michovska (9.725) helped the team score a 48.825 in that event.

The vault squad closed out the evening with a 48.500 as DeFrancesco notched a 9.725 and senior Madeline Kennedy added a 9.650.

The Aggies, ranked 30th in the nation, return to action on Saturday at No. 22 California.
