A sellout crowd of 1,175 fans at Aggie Soccer Field saw an exciting game on Saturday, but UC Santa Barbara’s Goffin Boyoko ruined the fun when he scored a game-winner with less than a minute left in double overtime to beat the UC Davis men’s soccer team, 3-2.

In a matchup between the top two defenses in the Big West Conference the Aggies (6-7-1, 2-3) got second-half strikes from Matt Wiesenfarth (his fourth goal of the season) and Alex Aguiar (his first) to erase a 1-0 deficit, but Achille Campion converted on a penalty kick for the Gauchos (10-4, 5-0) with 56 seconds left in regulation to force overtime.

Wiesenfarth’s goal came in the 57th minute, off a passes from Alex Henry, and tied the game at 1-1. Aguiar then primed the crowd for the upset when he put UCD in front in the 78th minute.

It remained that way until Daniel Welsh was taken down in the box in the final minute, and Campion tied the match.

Despite a combined 33 kills and better than .400 hitting from the combination of senior opposite Devon Damelio and junior middle blocker Katie Quinn, the Aggies were unable to hold on to a 2-1 match lead, losing in five sets to UC Santa Barbara in Big West Conference action at the Thunderdome Saturday night.

The Gauchos (10-8, 5-1) won their fifth straight match, 25-20, 20-25, 16-25, 25-20, 15-11, while UCD (11-9, 3-4) completed a spilt of its weekend contests.

On Friday, sophomore Kaylin Squyres recorded a double-double of 16 kills and 13 digs, Quinn hit .500 with five blocks, and senior setter Jenny Woolway picked up a team-high 20 digs to lead the Aggies to a 25-22, 20-25, 25-20, 25-20 victory at Cal Poly.

Squyres posted 11 of her 16 total kills in the first and third sets to pace UCD offensively. Junior middle blocker Victoria Lee added 10-2-21 attacking for a .381 average while providing four blocks on net defense. Quinn hit an errorless 7-for-14 and led the Aggies in stuffs.

UCD swimming

Freshman Hilvy Cheung posted the fifth-fastest time in Aggie history to capture the 200-yard butterfly and senior Liliana Alvarez won the 200 breaststroke to highlight UCD’s performance at the Pacific Invitational at Chris Kjeldsen Pool on Saturday. No team scores were kept.

Cheung touched in 2 minutes, 3.54 seconds to win her race by more than two seconds, while Alvarez came in at 2:21, edging San Diego State’s Mikaela Macklin by just 0:06.

The Aggies also posted second-place finishes in three individual events plus the 200 free relay, where Hilary Hunt, Samantha Shellem, Katie Edwards and Haley Porter compiled a 1:37.13. Cheung made her 200 individual medley debut to take second at 2:08.39, while Shellem led a 2-3-4 UCD finish in the 500 with a 5:00.99, just ahead of sophomore Marissa Brown’s 5:01.45.

Hunt came home in 2:04.19 to lead the Aggies in the 200 backstroke.

UCD cross country

Spread across the country Saturday morning, the Aggies completed a busy day with the men’s team finishing 20th at the Indiana State Pre-National Invitational, the women taking 21st at the Wisconsin Adidas Invitational and the balance of the squad competing at the Santa Clara Bronco Invitational.

Junior Trevor Halsted, a DHS graduate, finished 52nd overall with his 24:13.97 to lead the UCD men in Terre Haute, Ind. Halsted was followed by Brandon Pugh (62nd, 24:18.66), Will Melton (142nd, 24:54.48), Jordan Rushing (165th, 25:01.70), Nicholas Ratto (207th, 25:13.73), senior Grayson Hough — a former Blue Devil — (253rd, 25:31.85) and Cody Nguyen (316th, 26:14.03) in the Aggie lineup.

UCD senior Sarah Sumpter finished 34th overall in Wisconsin (20:27), with freshman Hannah Kirkegaard taking 97th in 21:06. Behind them came Aggie teammates, Katie Fry (106th), Alycia Cridebring (148th), Erika Barr (187) and Shannon Harcus in 210th.

At Santa Clara, sophomore Amar Dholakia (24.52) finished 60th overall to pace the UCD men, while freshman Olivia Goins (21:58) was 91st to lead the Aggie women.

UCD men’s water polo

Juniors Chris Richardson and Tevor Allen — a DHS graduate — scored two goals each for the 11th-ranked Aggies, but it wasn’t enough as No. 3 Pacific raced to a 22-10 win on Friday at Schaal Aquatics Center.

UCD fell to 7-9 and the Tigers, who got eight goals from Balazs Erdelyi, improved to 14-2.

In the loss, Bernie Rogers, Tyler Elliott, Max Vigeant, Jeff Mayers, Alex Bagdasarian and Michael Wright — another former Blue Devil — each found the net once for the Aggies, who were tied at 2-2 with 3:35 to play in the first period. After that, Pacific scored five unanswered goals to take control.

The 22 goals allowed is the third-most by a UCD opponent in the program’s recorded history, and the highest total since a 28-3 loss to USC back in 1998.

The Aggies continue a tough weekend with a road game at No. 4 Stanford on Sunday.

UCD field hockey

In a back-and-forth affair that saw the Aggies leading early on, Pacific eventually emerged with a 4-2 NorPac win on Friday at Maxwell Family Field in Berkeley.

The loss drops the Aggies to 4-9 overall and 2-2 in conference play on the year; Pacific now sports respective records of 4-10 and 2-2.

Less than one minute after the Tigers (4-10, 2-2) scored the first goal of the afternoon, UCD (4-9, 2-2) answered when Agustina Singh scored her second goal in as many games by taking full advantage of the Aggies’ inaugural penalty corner.

Six minutes later, Kristin Rodgers scored her first collegiate goal when her shot beat Tiger goalkeeper Maggie Corder near post to put UCD up 2-1.

Cloey LemMon earned an assist on each goal and now leads all Aggies with five, but Pacific finished the game with three consecutive goals.

UCD is back on the same field at 1:30 p.m. Sunday to take on Cal.

UCD men’s basketball

In a column last week, CBSSports.com’s Garry Parrish and his panel of college basketball pundits ranked Aggie Corey Hawkins as one of the top 100 players in college basketball for the 2013-14 season.

Ranked No. 80 by Parrish and his colleagues, Hawkins is the only player from the Big West Conference to earn a ranking as one of the country’s top talents.

In 2012-13, his first season in a UCD uniform, Hawkins finished No. 13 in the nation in scoring at 20.3 ppg and became the first Aggie to collect a Big West scoring title.
