UCD roundup: Aggies edge Quinnipiac in overtime

By
From page B2 | September 02, 2014 |

Junior Haley Hughes scored from just beyond the left corner of the penalty box two minutes into the overtime period on Sunday to lead the UC Davis women’s soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Quinnipiac at Aggie Soccer Field.

The Aggies (3-1) got their lone goal just after winning possession from the Bobcats (0-3) to start the extra frame.

Sophomore teammate Mari Pastor redirected a Charlotte Ellberg ball past the Quinnipiac back line, finding Hughes in the 92nd minute. Hughes then sent a low shot past Bobcat goalkeeper Tori Graessele for her first goal of the season.

“I thought Quinnipiac was well coached, they were consistently placing 11 players behind the ball whenever we tried to create scoring opportunities,” said UCD head coach Twila Kaufman. “They sat in their third of the pitch with great patience. Sometimes that is the hardest type of soccer to break down. We missed some quality chances before the game-winner, but we were able to keep our cool and play with poise.”

That match-winner was the Aggies’ 12th shot attempt and fourth on goal. Neither team managed any substantial opportunities in the first half, but UCD fired eight shots and had six corner kicks in the second half.

Quinnipiac had just three shots, none of which were on frame.

“This game always comes down to players making the proper decisions and making plays. Everyone contributed to this result,” Kaufman said. “I’m really proud of this team to take care of its home field.”

The Aggies now head to Colorado for the Air Force Tournament, starting with a Friday match against Southeast Missouri.

UCD men’s soccer

After the Aggies fell behind Canisius early in Sunday’s Wolstein Classic match at Ohio State, goals from Ian Palmer and Ryan Gross sent UCD to a 2-1 victory.

Goalkeeper Kris Schultz had four saves as the Aggies went unbeaten in the weekend tournament to start the season at 1-0-1.

Schultz, making only his second and third career appearances between the pipes for UCD this past weekend after missing all of 2013 due to injury, was named the Big West Conference Defensive Player of the Week.

In addition, Schultz, Gross — a Davis High graduate — and teammate Ramon Martin Del Campo earned all tournament honors.

On Sunday, the Golden Griffins struck first in the 17th minute but the lead wouldn’t last long as Matt Sheldon crossed to Palmer just five minutes later for with the equalizer.

Early in the second half, Schultz came up with a big save and moments later Gross nailed a 20-yard shot that would eventually be the difference in the game.

The Aggies outshot Canisius 15-13 while each team had seven corners. Dashiell MacNamara led UCD with four shots — two of them on goal — while Gross put all three of his shots on goal.

The Aggies now return to Davis for their Friday (5 p.m.) home opener against LMU and a Saturday (1 p.m.) match with San Diego.

UCD field hockey

Kristin Rodgers’ 61st-minute goal Sunday was the first Aggie tally at the brand-new UC Davis Field Hockey Facility, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough to christen the stadium with a victory.

Instead, Fairfield scored with just over two minutes left to capture a 2-1 victory in the Aggies’ season opener.

“This team did a tremendous job executing our game plan, sometimes the ball just does not bounce your way,” said UCD head coach Tiffany Huisman.

Aggie goalkeeper Beth Lee finished with six saves in her first-ever start, while Rodgers’ goal — from Linnea Whitney — was the second of her career.

“It was chaotic in front of (Fairfield’s) net. Once I saw the ball head my way, I saw open space and just wanted to score,” Rodgers said. “I was thrilled to see the ball roll into the goal because I was able to reward my team after all the hard work that took place throughout the game leading to that goal.”

Kayla Wigney (shot), Jamie Garcia (shot on goal), Lee (save), Whitney (assist) and Sophia Lisaius (penalty corner) were responsible for other UCD firsts recorded at its new home facility.

Beginning with Thursday’s game at Missouri State, the Aggies will play their next three matches on the road.
