After Sacramento State’s Isaac Ikyurav scored the game’s lone goal late in the first half, the visiting Hornets withstood a barrage of second-half chances from the UC Davis men’s soccer team to hold off the Aggies, 1-0, on Saturday in front of a sellout crowd of 1,175 fans at the Aggie Soccer Field.

It’s the third straight loss for UCD (6-8-2, 2-4-1 Big West Conference), while Sac State (3-9-3, 1-6) snapped a six-match losing streak.

“I thought it was not a very good performance by our team,” said Aggie head coach Dwayne Shaffer. “I’ll give Sacramento State credit; they scored the first goal and we were left chasing the game. Unfortunately, we just didn’t respond well enough to get a goal.

“We put a ton of pressure on them in the second half, created numerous opportunities, but we just couldn’t score to get back in the game.”

Ikyurav’s second goal of the year in the 37th minute, off a pass from teammate Almog Strikowski, was only the ninth goal for the Hornets this season,

UCD didn’t go quietly, dominating the second half with a 12-3 shot advantage (16-7 overall) and a 6-0 lead in corner kicks (9-0 overall). The Aggies’ best chance to tie came nine minutes into the second period when Sam Hoeck headed home a ball played into the box by Kevin Schulte, but the referee whistled a foul.

Sac State goalkeeper Cesar Castillo finished with seven saves — including a pair in the final minute on shots by Schulte and Matt Wiesenfarth — while UCD senior Omar Zeenni had three.

The Aggies are back on the pitch Saturday when they host UC Santa Barbara at 7 p.m.

UCD men’s water polo

Junior Chris Richardson had a hat trick in a 13-3 win over Cal Baptist while senior Bernie Rogers and sophomore Austin Beckwith each scored twice in an 8-7 victory over Bucknell as the No. 11 UC Davis men’s water polo team swept a pair of top 20 opponents on Saturday.

With the two wins, which came at Santa Clara’s Rodeo tournament, the Aggies improved to 9-10.

Besides Richardson’s three goals against the Lancers, juniors Teddy Nicholson and Trevor Allen — both Davis High graduates — each added two in the victory.

Sophomore goalie Philip Bates also played a key role, tallying 15 saves against CB before adding another nine in the nightcap, as UCD held off the Bison charge.

In that contest, Nicholson and  freshman Jacob Ley added key goals for the Aggies, who continue the tournament on Sunday with games against No. 19 Harvard (8 a.m.) and No. 20 Brown (10:40 a.m.).

UCD swimming

The Aggies won 11 of the 16 events, four UCD athletes posted two victories and the locals took a 178-116 dual meet Saturday from host San Jose State at The Aquatics Center.

The win snapped a five-meet losing streak against the Spartans as the Aggies defeated San Jose State for the first time since 2006.

UCD saw eight times or totals among the school’s top 10, including freshman Hilvy Cheung’s 2:01.72 in the 200 butterfly, the second-fastest time in Aggie history. Diver Hanna Tears’ total of 292.65 to win the 3-meter event also was the second best in school history.

UCD juniors Samantha Shellem (200 and 500 freestyle) and Hilary Hunt (100 and 200 backstroke), along with senior Liliana Alvarez (100 and 200 breaststroke) and Tears, a sophomore, each brought home two wins.

Aggie sophomore Marissa Brown (1,000 free), senior Katie Edwards (200 individual medley) and the 400 free relay squad of Shellem, Hunt, Haley Porter and Edwards also posted victories.

UCD women’s golf

Betty Chen posted four birdies and Beverly Vatananugulkit had three as both players fired even-par 71s on Saturday to help the 38th-ranked Aggies move into 11th place after two rounds of the Stanford Intercollegiate.

Vatananugulkit was tied for 12th individually and Chen was tied for 18th heading into Sunday’s final round. UCD senior Jessica Chulya shot a 73 and was tied for 76th, freshman Paige Lee had a 77 and was tied for 58th and sophomore Andrea Wong carded a 78 and was 81st.

As a team, the Aggies fired an 8-over 292 on Saturday, one shot better than their Friday score, and were at 17-over 585.

UCD field hockey

Four early goals scored by No. 6 Penn State put Saturday’s nonconference, neutral-site game away early as the Aggies fell, 5-0, in Iowa.

UCD (4-11) returns to action Sunday, when it will face its second nationally ranked team in as many days, No. 19 Iowa.

In Saturday’s second half, the Aggies held the Nittany Lions to only one goal even though 11 shots were fired in UC Davis goalkeeper Danielle Herrington’s direction. Of that bunch, Herrington recorded three saves.
