Gauchos' offensive woes continue

[UC SANTA BARBARA-CREIGHTON] UC Santa Barbara’s problems continued on Tuesday night as the Gauchos fell, 1-0, to visiting Creighton, which improved to 3-0-0 under first-year coach Jamie Clark.

The loss dropped UCSB to 0-1-2 and marked the first time since Tim Vom Steeg took over the program in 1999 that it has failed to win one of its first three games of the season.

For the third consecutive contest, the Gauchos outshot their opponents, but they managed only three shots apiece on frame. They've scored only one goal in three matches.
 
“I always used to think you make your own luck, so we are definitely going to have to fight through this,” Vom Steeg said. “We weren’t dangerous enough in the second half. In the first half, we definitely were."
 
The lone goal of the match came in the 37th minute when Creighton’s Jose Gomez found senior Andrew Duran on a corner kick and Duran headed it into the goal for the first goal of his college career.

"I thought in the first half we were very good," said Clark after the big win. "We went toe-to-toe with them and went up a goal and we were fortunate to come away with a win. Not many teams come to Santa Barbara and walk out with a win."

Gomez, a transfer from Cal State Fullerton, was one of three Californians to start for the Bluejays. The others were juniors Sergio Castillo and Kris Clark.

Creighton had lost freshman Conor Doyle on the eve of preseason when the Texan signed with English club Derby County.
