#2 UCSB Mens Soccer vs. UC Davis Aggies

With the seniors being the main pregame attraction, they did not disappoint. The Gauchos scored two second half goals to defeat UC Davis 2-0.

The breakthrough came in 65th minute when senior Martin Hedevag cleared the ball to fellow senior David Walker who sent a through ball to freshman striker Michael Nonni who scored to give the Gauchos a 1-0 lead.

Just two minutes later, the score doubled when David Walker got his team leading 7th goal of the season. Walker had five shots and Nonni with four but both had two shots a piece on target.

Goalie Sam Hayden recorded another clean sheet while getting five saves in the match.
Tim Vom Steeg said this about tonight's effort, "Tonight was a very, very good effort on our parts."

This however is not the last home game of the year because the Gauchos clinched the Big West, they will host Cal State Northridge in the Big West Soccer Tournament Semifinals Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. at Harder Stadium.

Go Gauchos!
