Junior forward Nick DePuy
scored both goals to give UC Santa Barbara a 2-1 win over Sacramento State and passed USC Upstate's Gordon Wild
as the national leader in goals with 15.
Freshman midfielder Geoffrey Acheampong
assisted on both of DePuy's goals to
give him 10 assists on the season, extending his Big West lead. He is the first Gaucho to hit double digits in assists since Luis Silva
and Dom Sarle
both accomplished the feat in 2011.
UCSB clinched a spot in the upcoming Big West Tournament with the win.
"I was very pleased
with our performance tonight," said UCSB head coach Tim Vom Steeg. "As a team, we really put in a good effort, especially considering we were coming off an emotionally disappointing draw against Cal
Poly." NCAA Division I Leading Scorers: PLAYER TEAM G 1. Nick
