Mustangs rally before sellout of 11,075
by Paul Kennedy, October 15th, 2011 2:02AM



[CAL POLY-UC SANTA BARBARA] The Central Coast derby between Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara lived up it its billing as one of the greatest rivalries in college soccer as defender Patrick Siegler's penalty kick with 26 seconds remaining in the game gave Cal Poly a 2-1 win over No. 12 Gauchos before a sellout crowd of 11,075 at Spanos Stadium.

After trailing for over 66 minutes, Cal Poly had tied the game in the 79th minute on a corner kick. Kyle Montgomery played the ball into the box, where Cameron Walters connected with a header.

UCSB had captured the initial lead in the 12th minute when sophomore Dom Sarle flicked the ball to Sam Garza on the breakaway, and the junior ran past a couple of defenders before going one-on-one against Patrick McLain and beating the Cal Poly goalkeeper.

The crowd tied the Cal Poly record set when it played UCSB in 2008 and was the second largest crowd of the year and seventh largest in NCAA regular-season history.

    A few record crowds this past week with over 10K in attendance is refreshing.
