Golden goal keeps No. 1 Golden Bears unbeaten

[COLLEGE MEN: Friday/Saturday] No. 1 California remained unbeaten when Alec Sundly scored his second golden goal of the season to give the Golden Bears a 1-0 overtime win over Santa Clara at Edwards Stadium.

Max Oldham set up the goal with a cross into the Broncos' box, where Sundly was open for the tap-in. Oldham was one of several players to come off the bench and have strong games for Cal.

“Obviously, Max had an unbelievable assist on the winning goal,” Cal head coach Kevin Grimes said, “and so I think all in all the guys really did a great job coming off the bench and giving us a spark, because we needed it. We feel like we have about 15 to 16 guys capable of starting on this team, so when we put in a sub off the bench, we feel like we’re inserting a level of player that’s no different than the starters that are out there.”

UNBEATEN AND UNTIED. No. 25 UMBC tied a school record by extending its season-opening winning streak to nine straight as the Retrievers beat visiting George Washington, 2-1, on Marquez Fernandez's golden goal before 1,578 fans at Retriever Soccer Park. UMBC is now undefeated in 18 consecutive games (15-0-3) dating back to the 2012 season. Dayton got two second-half goals from sophomore Amass Amankonais and pulled away for a 4-1 win over Loyola (Ill.) that improved the Flyers' record to 8-0-0.

Unbeaten Teams:
9-0-0 UMBC
8-0-0 Dayton
7-0-1 Milwaukee
7-0-1 Winthrop
6-0-1 Washington
5-0-1 Fla. Atlantic
6-0-2 Washington
4-0-3 Notre Dame

CROWD COUNT. Saint Louis drew a Homecoming Day crowd of 4,152 fans for its 4-1 victory over Central Arkansas. The Billikens got goals from Alex Sweetin, Robert Kristo, Kingsley Bryce and Adnan Gabeljic.

-- Wake Forest tied No. 3 North Carolina, 1-1, on Saturday night in front of a regular-season record crowd of 4,587 at Spry Stadium. Jalen Robinson headed home the game-tying goal for Wake with just 57 seconds remaining in regulation.

Upsets ...

-- Old Dominion knocked off ODU No. 16 Tulsa, 2-1, on junior Ivan Militar’s goal with 17 minutes left in the match. It was the first Conference USA match for ODU. "It was a great team win on the road in our first C-USA game against last year's champions," said ODU coach Alan Dawson. "I am very proud of the boys after battling back from a goal down." Abe Matamoros put the Hurricanes ahead in the 17th minute, while ODU got the equalizer on a goal in the 35th minute from sophomore Geoffrey Hill.

-- No. 20 New Mexico outshot UC Davis, 18-4, but was on the losing end of a 2-1 decision. The game turned three minutes after Ryan Goss put the Aggies ahead from the penalty spot when Michael Calderon’s penalty kick was saved by UC Davis’s Omar Zeeni. Ben McKendry equalized with a shot from outside the area in the 63rd minute, but Matt Wiesenfarth won the game for UC Davis (4-4-1) 11 minutes later.

FOUR FOR HORVAT. Sophomore Aaron Horvat tied a school record by scoring four goals to lead unbeaten Milwaukee to a 5-3 victory over Detroit Saturday afternoon. He became the first Panther to net a hat trick in eight seasons. The last Milwaukee player to score four goals was Neil Dombrowski against Loyola (Ill.) in October 2005.
