Monora Seth Had 5 Caused Turnovers vs. RedlandsSanta Barbara, CA - The Gauchos hosted NCAA DIII University of Redlands in a Tuesday matchup on the RecCen Turf field and walked away with an 18-4 win to improve to 9-0 overall. The game was moved from a 1:00pm start on the UCSB Lacrosse Field to a 2:00pm start on the turf because the grass fields at UCSB were still closed from recent inclement weather.

"The support we get from our administration and other teams at UCSB is unparalleled," said first year head coach Paul Ramsey after the game. "Both our NCAA Division I soccer teams adjusted their practices to allow us turf time to get this game played."

It took WDIA top ranked UCSB 37 seconds to get on the board. Senior Emily Ruby (Davis, CA) drove hard righty and moved Bulldog senior goalie Lindsey Feig (Hingham, MA) with a stick fake before sending the ball past her right ear to the far pipe. Redlands answered 2 minutes later with an unassisted goal by freshman Christy Smith (St. Louis Park, MN) to tie it at 1-1. A Ruby pass to junior Kelsey Seitz (San Diego, CA) then put UCSB up 2-1 3:38 into the game. That started UCSB off on a 12-0 run over the next 26 minutes to effectively put the game far out of reach of Redlands. Smith found her way to the goal again for the Bulldogs with 20 seconds left in the half to make it 13-2 in favor of UCSB at half-time. Nine different Gauchos scored goals in the first half, eleven different UCSB players scored goals throughout the game and eight goals were assisted.

Sophomore Monora Seth (San Diego, CA) led the UCSB defense with 5 caused turnovers, 3 ground balls and 2 draw controls. UCSB Senior Kristen Dickey (Davis, CA) led all scorers with 3 goals and an assist and freshman teammate Ashley Antoon-Algieri (San Ramon, CA) equaled her on points with 2 goals and 2 assists. Antoon-Algieri was back in action after missing most of the Brigham Young game and all of the Michigan, Texas A&M and Colorado games with a quadricep contusion suffered early in the first half against BYU.

"It's nice to be able to play well in the middle of the week," commented Ramsey. "Sometimes with coming from class and setting up the field just before game time and thinking about rushing off to class after the game a team might not play their best."

"We are able to get into the moment quite well."

Freshman Diane Clow (Poway, CA) stopped 10 shots by Redlands in the first half on her way to a 15 save performance that resulted in her stoping 78.9% of the Bulldog attempts. Her UCSB teammates took Clow's early second half saves and scored the first five goals of the second stanza to run their lead up to 18-2 with 7:30 remaining in the game. The offensive show was over at that point as the Gauchos resorted to passing the ball around. Redlands put in two assisted goals on nice pass plays over the last 5 minutes of the game.

UCSB improved to 9-0 overall with the win. The Gauchos open up Western Women's Lacrosse League Central Division play against UCLA in Harder Stadium on Saturday at 1:00pm. The 9th ranked Bruins are 5-4 and lead the standings in the Central Division with a 1-0 record.
