UC Davis’ Trevor Allen, a Davis High graduate, scored four times on Saturday, three of them coming in the 13th-ranked Aggie men’s water polo team’s 11-7 comeback win over No. 18 Redlands at Schaal Aquatics Center.

Earlier on Day 1 of the Aggie Shootout, UCD fell to No. 4 Cal, 14-4.

Chris Richardson, Bernie Rogers and Teddy Nicholson, a former Blue Devil, each added two goals to help the locals erase a four-goal deficit against Redlands. Richardson also had a goal in the morning contest, while Jacob Ley tallied twice in that loss to the Golden Bears.

In the afternoon victory, the Aggies (4-6) trailed 7-3 early in the third period but finished the game by scoring eight straight goals. In that run, Tennyson May and Alex Bagdasarian scored once each for UCD, while Austin Beckwith had an assist as the Aggies shot 11-for-30, a marked improvement over the 4-for-37 offense in the loss to Cal.

UCD goalkeepers Philip Bates and Zach Tudhope split up net duties evenly. Bates tallied six saves in his first half of work against Cal, then four in his start against Redlands. Tudhope relieved Bates in the second half of each game. He also stopped 10 shots total.

The Aggies will take on Fresno Pacific at 11:30 a.m. Sunday in their final tournament match.

UCD cross country

Trevor Ehlenbach and Amar Dholakia finished 38th and 39th, respectively, at the Stanford Invitational on Saturday morning, helping the Aggie men finish eighth overall.

The UCD women, paced by freshmen Rianna Goins who was 54th and Clara MacLeod who was 59th, finished 12th at the meet that was contested on the Stanford Golf Course.

Eleven of the 12 competitors for the Aggie men and women were underclassmen, and UCD coach Drew Wartenburg said Saturday’s meet provided good experience for them against elite competition early in their careers.

“We took a young group over to Palo Alto and put them in positions where they were forced into scoring and contributing roles,” he added. “Every athlete should have taken away a positive aspect as well as a good lesson learned from Saturday’s races.”

Ehlenbach was timed in 26 minutes, 39 seconds in the men’s 8K race while Dholakia was right behind in 26:41. Other Aggie finishers included Luke Dorman (48th, 27:27), Miguel Aceves (53rd, 27:36) and Patrick Fitzgerald (63rd, 28:01).

Goins led UCD in just her second collegiate race, finishing in 23:46 on the women’s 6K course, while MacLeod was timed in 23:46. Other finishers were Olivia Goins (60th, 23:47), Katie Ott (63rd, 23:56), Nicole Lane (24:05), Julia Yang (74th, 24:22) and Kayla Knapp (79th, 24:28).

UCD women’s volleyball

Despite junior Victoria Lee’s 15 kills and .650 hitting average, plus another 16 kills and .393 efficiency by senior opposite Devon Damelio, the Aggies could not stop Cal State Northridge’s middle hitting in a five-set, 19-25, 26-24, 23-25, 25-18, 15-11 Big West Conference match at the Matadome on Saturday night.

It was the first league match for both the Aggies (8-6) and the Matadors (11-3), who are among the teams receiving votes in the coaches’ Top 25 poll.

Damelio added 11 digs to her offensive output for her fifth double-double of the year. Lee committed just two hitting errors on 20 swings while posting two solo blocks on net defense. Junior libero Megan Lancaster led UCD with 15 digs.

UCD men’s soccer

Decisively outshot during a matchup with No. 25 New Mexico, the Aggies made the most of their opportunities to stun the host Lobos, 2-1, in a nonconference game on Friday night.

Sophomore Ryan Gross, a DHS graduate, scored on a penalty kick in the 22nd minute while junior Matt Wiesenfarth delivered the game-winner in the 74th minute to help UCD even its record at 4-4-1. New Mexico, which picked up an equalizing goal in the 63rd minute from Ben McKendry, fell to 4-3-1.

New Mexico has been ranked as high as ninth during the season and was 14th as recently as last week. The Lobos entered the game after winning 1-0 at UC Santa Barbara — one of the Aggies’ Big West Conference foes — on Monday.

Friday, the Lobos had the edge on the game stats, outshooting the Aggies 18-4 overall, including 8-3 on shots on goal. They also held an 11-2 advantage on corner kicks, but it was UCD that delivered more on its chances.

Aggie goalkeeper Omar Zeenni had seven saves to help the Aggies, who will open conference play on Friday at 3 p.m. when they host UC Irvine, a team that is receiving votes in the national rankings.

UCD women’s soccer

Ashley Edwards drilled a penalty kick past Pacific goalkeeper Tashia Long in the 57th minute of Friday’s nonconference match at Knoles Field to send the Aggies to a 1-0 win.

By capturing a victory in its final contest before the start of Big West action on Oct. 10, at Long Beach State, UCD improved its record to 3-5-2.

Whistled for a hand ball in the early moments of the second half in its own 18-yard box, Pacific (1-7-2) could only stand and watch Edwards connect on her first PK opportunity this season for her second game-winner of 2013.

In all, the Aggies outshot Pacific, 12-8, and took all seven of the game’s corner kicks.

UCD field hockey

Aggie Cloey LemMon scored her third goal of the season to tie Friday’s nonconference game against Central Michigan and force an additional period of play. But a goal scored by the Chippewas off an unfortunate deflection brought them a 2-1 win in a neutral-site contest at BSU Field in Muncie, Ind.

Central Michigan struck first 27 minutes into the game but UCD (1-7) tied it on a play that originated from a penalty corner. Jamie Garcia blasted the initial shot toward Chippewa goalkeeper Sadie Reynolds, then LemMon quickly ran across the front of the goal to take a swing at the loose ball. That made it 1-1.

The Aggies will stay at the same field to face Vermont on Sunday at 8 a.m. The contest will mark the last of six straight road games for UCD.
