UCSB vs. SDSUSanta Barbara, CA - Seventh ranked UCSB outshot the club from San Diego State but couldn't climb all the way out of a six goal hole and lost 17-13 at UCSB Harder Stadium. The Gauchos were scoreless on their first 12 shots at the start of the game while the 15th ranked Aztecs converted on their opportunities to go up 6-0 in the first seven minutes. SDSU freshman goal keeper Danen Kelsey (San Diego, CA) had 14 saves in the first half with the help of the Gauchos shooting only 17.6%. Kelsey followed up with 10 more saves in the second half to finish at 64.9%.

After the Aztecs went up 6-0 sophomore Alena Riggs (Laguna Niguel, CA) started UCSB off on a three goal run with an unassisted goal. Senior Blair Evans (Salinas, CA) and freshman Claire Wilson (Healdsburg, CA) each scored and the Gauchos were partway back with 30 seconds left until halftime. Then, though, the Aztecs won the next draw control and scored to lead 7-3 at halftime. The Gauchos pulled to within 3 goals two separate times in the second half. They were down 5-8 with 28 minutes remaining and it looked like they might get something going with plenty of time. The Aztecs then scored three straight to take a 6 goal lead. The Gauchos came back partway again and were down 7-10 with 20 minutes remaining. Eight minutes later SDSU had their biggest lead of the game, up 16-8. Again the Gauchos rallied to score 5 of the next 6 goals but it was too much of a hole and the Aztecs held on to win by four. 

Each team had 16 draw controls. Overall UCSB outshot SDSU 41-26 but had a tough time putting it in the net. Evans led all scorers with 6 goals but nine SDSU players got in on the scoring for their team. Two Aztecs scored 3 goals, three Aztecs scored 2 goals and 5 other Aztecs scored 1 goal each. UCSB senior Megan Hughes (Santa Ana, CA) had 6 saves. The Gauchos dropped to 5-5 while SDSU improved to 6-2. The Gauchos have some time off for final exams before resuming play with the club from UC Berkeley on April 5th. The Aztecs play at 6th ranked UCLA in a 10:00am game on Saturday.
