Mens Soccer Road Trip Recap

The Gauchos went on the road all over the state of California and posted a 2 win, 1 loss record.

The first game was nine days ago when the Gauchos traveled to UC Riverside to take on the Highlanders. The Gauchos started off with a bang in the first minute when David Walker scored his fifth goal of the year, tied for the team lead with Danny Barrera and Michael Nonni. Both teams didn't score the rest of the game and the Gauchos escaped with a 1-0 conference win to extend the win streak to four.

The second game was a complete lopsided victory. Danny Barrera scored twice and had an assist when Joe Eubanks scored his first career goal on the first shot of his collegiate career. The score stayed and the Gauchos won again in easy fashion over UC Davis 3-0.

The last game of the road trip wasn't so pretty. The Gauchos had a streak going of 542 minutes with out giving up a goal but then CS Northridge player Robert Pate struck a ball passed the Gaucho keeper for the 1-0 lead and eventually the win. The loss stopped the #3 UCSB winning streak at five games.

The Gauchos return to action this Saturday against Big West foe Cal State Fullerton at 7:00 p.m. at Harder Stadium. Be there or be square. First 1000 fans get free UCSB beanies!!!!!
