Freshman center Carla Tocchini posted her first career hat trick in Saturday’s early game while senior Alex Rawlinson had three goals on the day as the 14th-ranked UC Davis women’s water polo team split its two games at the Aggie Shootout.

The Aggies (6-7) defeated Sonoma State, 14-6, then fell to No. 2 Stanford, 17-5, in Saturday’s nightcap. UCD lost to No. 13 San Jose State on Friday evening.

Tocchini’s three goals led 11 different Aggie scorers in the morning victory over the Seawolves. Redshirt freshman Sammi Murphy added two UCD tallies and two other Aggies — redshirt freshman Addie Green and true freshman Lauren Emge — each netted their first collegiate goal.

Sophomore goalie Haley Cameron, a Davis High graduate, made her third start of the season, tallying eight saves.

In the late game, Rawlinson scored twice, and single tallies came from senior Hannah Curran, Allyson Hansen and Elsie Fullerton, another former Blue Devil.

On Friday, Hanson, Fullerton and Curran scored two goals apiece but the Aggies fell behind midway through the match and could not come back.

The Aggie Shootout concludes Sunday, with UCD facing Bakersfield at 8 a.m. and Cal State East Bay at 3:30 p.m. An alumni exhibition game will precede the second contest.

UCD softball

A thrilling 2-1 victory over Robert Morris on Saturday night — in which the Aggies scored in their first and last set of at-bats — concluded a wild second day of the Stacy Winsburg Memorial Tournament in Los Angeles.

UCD was tied with Western Kentucky at 6-6 through seven innings of Saturday’s first game, then scored two runs in the top of the eighth. However, the Hilltoppers responded with three runs of th own to hand the Aggies a heartbreaking 9-8 loss.

The Day 2 split came after UCD (4-7) had blanked Western Kentucky, 2-0, and lost to host No. 12/13 UCLA, 6-0, on Friday.

Played under international tiebreak rules with a runner starting each inning in scoring position at second base in the extra-inning game against the Hilltoppers, the Aggies broke the tie when Cat Guidry drove in Brianna Warner and then scored on Christa Castello’s triple.

Though UCD could not hold on to the lead, it bounced back later against Robert Morris. Kelly Zboralske’s first-inning double plated Jasmine Lee with the first Aggie run and Guidry knocked in Warner with the winning tally un the sixth.

That made a winner out of UCD reliever Leah Munden, as she came in for Marissa Chapa, who gave up just four hits in her first career start.

On Friday, Zboralske’s two-run homer and seven innings of near-perfect pitching from Dana Cruse lifted the Aggies over Western Kentucky. The shutout victory was Cruse’s second in as many games as she also performed the feat in a Wednesday win over Sacramento State.

Lee had the team’s only hit in the loss to UCLA.

UCD men’s tennis

The Aggies got set for Sunday’s Causeway Cup clash by posting wins over Holy Names (6-1) and St. Mary’s (4-2).

The victories extended UCD’s winning streak to three and moved it to 3-4 overall heading into the 1 p.m. matchup with Sacramento State at the Rio Del Oro Racket Club in Sacramento.

In Saturday’s opener, the Aggies won the doubles point for the first time this season, then used singles triumphs by Kyle Miller, Alec Adamson, James Wade and Mitch Thorpe to seal the match.

Against the Gaels, singles victories by Wade (his team-best 15th of the season), Bryce McKelvie, Parker Kelly and Brett Bacharach were enough to carry UCD to a team win.

UCD women’s tennis

Aggies Megan Heneghan and Tiffany Pham won singles matches on Saturday at Long Beach State, but that was all UCD would get in dropping its Big West Conference opener, 5-2.

After the 49ers (6-1, 3-0) took the doubles point and captured the first singles match, the Aggies (2-4, 0-1) got on the board when Heneghan easily dispatched Ebba Unden, 6-2, 6-4, at No. 1.

Later, Pham finished off Haley Thompson in similar fashion at No. 5, winning 6-3, 6-2 to post her fourth victory in her past five singles matches.
