SONOMA — Three UC Davis golfers — Matt Hansen (6-under), Ben Corfee of El Macero (3-under) and Luke Vivolo (1-under) — shot below par on Monday as the Aggie men finished the first 36 holes of the Alister MacKenzie Invitational in a tie for sixth place.

Playing at the Sonoma Golf Club, No. 79 UCD was 6-under as a team after rounds of 2-under 286 and 4-under 284.

In the individual standings, Hansen is tied for sixth, Corfee is 15th and Vivolo is 23rd. Aggie Mike Brockington shot 4-over to tie for 55th, while Jonny Baxter was 5-over and in a tie for 62nd.

UCD men’s soccer

Matt Wiesenfarth scored his third goal of the season in the 14th minute, Matt Sheldon added another insurance goal in the 60th and goalie Armando Quezada recorded a shutout as the Aggies won a 2-0 Big West Conference contest at UC Riverside.

UCD (6-6-1, 2-2-0) got all it needed when Ryan Gross, a Davis High graduate, crossed the ball to Wiesenfarth, who headed it into the Highlanders’ (6-5-1, 1-3-0) goal.

In his first college start in goal, Quezada collected five saves.

UCD women’s soccer

Aggie sophomore Sienna Drizin got her first goal of the season, but it wasn’t enough as UC Irvine posted a 3-1 Big West Conference victory on Sunday afternoon.

UCD (3-6-3, 0-1-1) fell behind early when the Anteaters (8-5, 3-1) scored in the seventh minute, but Lexi Poppoff assisted Drizin on the equalizer less than five minutes later.

However, despite five saves by Aggie goalie Taylor Jern, UCI slipped in the go-ahead goal before the end of the first half and added an insurance goal after the break.

UCD men’s water polo

Junior Chris Richardson scored four goals in both matches on Sunday and, when junior attacker Trevor Allen — a DHS grad — hit the game-winner with 64 seconds remaining against St. Francis (Brooklyn), the Aggies took 11th place at the UCI Invitational.

After falling to Pepperdine, 10-8, in the morning contest, UCD (7-8) defeated SF, 9-8.

Allen added a hat trick against the Waves to finish the day with four goals, and senior Bernie Rogers was the only other Aggie player to score in each contest.

UCD field hockey

The Aggies continued to play well on their home field as they dominated nearly every phase of the game in Sunday’s 2-0 NorPac victory over Cal at Aggie Stadium.

UCD (4-8, 2-1) took an early lead when Sophia Lisaius’ pinpoint pass through a throng of players set up Kayle Wigney’s tip-in.

Later, Agustina Singh weaved her way through several Golden Bear (4-9, 1-3) defenders to score an insurance goal.

Once the Aggies went ahead, the local defense was so strong that Danielle Herrington needed to make just one save to record her second shutout of the season.

UCD men’s tennis

The Aggies won titles in main-draw singles and main-draw doubles, while adding a doubles consolation championship as the UCSB Classic wrapped up on Sunday.

Brett Bacharach earned the singles crown for UCD, defeating Gaucho Sasha Gryaznov, 6-2, 0-6, 6-4, on his home court.

Adam Levie teamed with Alec Adamson to pick up the main-draw doubles championship for the Aggies, while Bryce McKelvie/Adam Luba clinched the consolation title.

UCD women’s tennis

Highlighted by Megan Heneghan and Melissa Kobayakawa’s battle for a doubles title, three Aggies played at the Korth Tennis Complex in Moraga on Sunday, the final day of action at the St. Mary’s Fall Invitational.

After a successful run throughout the tournament’s first two days, Heneghan and Kobayakawa finished in second place in their bracket’s doubles final, then Heneghan reached the consolation finals of her singles bracket.

UCD’s Kamila Kecki made the consolation semifinals in the same singles bracket.

UCD women’s volleyball

The Aggies dominated the early part of the first game and had a couple of set points in the second, but ultimately could not hold off Long Beach State, falling 18-25, 26-24, 25-23, 25-19 in a Big West home match on Saturday.

Senior opposite Devon Damelio led UCD (10-8, 2-3) with 15 kills on .333 hitting, while providing 20 digs and five blocks on defense. Aggie senior setter Jenny Woolway matched Damelio’s digs total and added 46 assists and two aces.
