FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Weather got the best of second-round action at the Colonel Wollenberg Ptarmigan Ram Classic at Colorado State on Monday with the UC Davis women’s golf team sitting in 10th place after the tournament’s first day.

The Aggies shot a 15-over 303 in the first round and were more than halfway through the afternoon round before storms stopped action for the day. Teams were scheduled to complete their second round on Tuesday morning before moving on to the final 18 holes.

Juniors Beverly Vatananugulkit and Blair Lewis paced UCD with opening-round scores of 3-over 75 while sophomore Andrea Wong, who had a 77 in the morning round, was 8-over and tied for 29th to lead the Aggies at the point of suspension.

Vatananugulkit was tied for 40th at 10-over with Lewis a shot back and tied for 48th. Freshman Paige Lee opened her Aggie career with a 76 and was 40th, while sophomore Betty Chen was at 13-over and tied for 59th after carding a 79 in the first round.

Even though the Aggies generated more quality chances than CSU Bakersfield in Sunday’s Copa de Causeway finale, it was the visiting Roadrunners who left Aggie Soccer Field with a 2-0 victory.

By helping UCD (1-3-0) earn a split of its Copa de Causeway contests this past weekend, forward Andre Brown and goalkeeper Omar Zeenni were named to the all-tournament team.

Throughout the opening half, the Aggies kept Bakersfield (2-1-0) on its heels. Still, UCD entered the break down 1-0.

More frustrating for the Aggies was a blocked penalty kick on which the Roadrunners’ goalkeeper guessed correctly and deflected the attempt out of bounds.

Four minutes later, Bakersfield found the net.

UCD outshot its opponent (26-12) for the third straight game, including near-goals from forwards Kevin Schulte and Dashiell MacNamara.

“We created enough quality scoring chances against them (CSU Bakersfield), we just needed to find a way to finish,” said Aggie head coach Dwayne Shaffer.

Facing No. 18 Cal, its first nationally ranked opponent of the season, in its final game at the University of San Francisco Tournament, the Aggies trailed by just one goal at halftime before eventually falling 4-0 at Negoesco Stadium.

Goalkeeper Taylor Jern recorded three saves in the first five minutes of action for UCD (2-3-0), while Hannah Hicks and Taylor Locke led the Aggies with two shots each. Lexi Poppoff also took a shot that required a good save by Cal (5-0-1).

In all, seven UCD players were responsible for their team’s nine shots.

Up next for the Aggies is a game Friday (6:30 p.m.) at Utah.

Veterans Trevor Allen, Bernie Rogers and Chris Richardson plus redshirt freshman Mark Coufal each totaled two goals on the day, but the 17th-ranked Aggies dropped a pair of games against top-10 competition at the Triton Invitational on Sunday at the UC San Diego’s Canyonview Aquatic Center

UCD (2-2) fell to No. 6 Long Beach State, 11-7, then to No. 4 California, 15-4.

Rogers and Coufal each scored two goals against the 49ers in the morning matchup, while Allen — a Davis High graduate — hit two in the nightcap. Richardson netted one in each contest, matching redshirt freshman Austin Beckwith and senior transfer Tyler Elliott against LBSU. Sophomore Alex Bagdasarian accounted for the fourth goal against the Golden Bears.

Aggie sophomore Philip Bates and redshirt freshman Zach Tudhope continued to platoon at goalkeeper in Sunday’s first outing. Bates had six saves in the first half before Tudhope posted five in his second-half relief. Tudhope manned the net for the Cal matchup, adding five more blocks.

UCD field hockey

Goals scored by redshirt freshman forward Danielle Koehne and sophomore midfielder Jamie Garcia late in the second half brought the Aggies to within one goal of Dartmouth in Sunday’s neutral-site game on Maxwell Family Field in Berkekey, but the Big Green held onto its slim lead to win 4-3.

Down 2-0, UCD (2-1) cut the lead in half when sophomore midfielder Hannah Drawbridge set up freshman forward Kayla Wigney.

Dartmouth (1-0) scored the next two goals before the Aggies nearly pulled off the comeback.

First, on a scoring opportunity that originally started with a shot from Garcia, Koehne corralled the carrom, took a shot that was blocked, then followed it with a one-timer goal off her own rebound.

Eighty seconds later, on the last of UCD’s four penalty corners, Garcia took senior forward Cloey LemMon’s inbound pass and blasted a shot into the net with 2:17 left.
