Aggies in great position in Big West

[UC DAVIS-UC SANTA BARBARA] A goal in the 85th minute by red-hot Alex Henry led UC Davis to a 1-0 victory over No. 11 UC Santa Barbara on Saturday afternoon in front of a season-high 1,344 fans at Aggie Soccer Field. The result improved the Aggies' record in the Big West to 4-1-0. UCSB has now lost two in a row after going undefeated through its first 11 games of the season.

"It's a great accomplishment for this team and a huge win for the UC Davis athletics program," said Aggies coach Dwayne Shaffer. "UC Santa Barbara is one of the pinnacle programs in the country, but I thought we were the better team on the day. It's a great win and puts us in a great position in the conference. Our goal is to finish in the top two and have a shot to make the Big West Tournament and the NCAA Tournament."

UC Davis had lost six in a row, but Henry won the game with a free kick that curled into the upper left corner of the goal past Gaucho goalkeeper Austin Mansker.

Aggie goalkeeper Omar Zeenni made two big saves on Peter McGlynn a minute apart as the hour mark approached to keep the Gauchos off the board.
