Red-Hot UCSB Ends Golden Coast Play Undefeated

In its last home game of the season, No. 4 UCSB took down No. 9 Pepperdine  10-8 to continue its seven-game win streak. The Gauchos will take the No. 1 seed into the GCC Tournament next weekend.

Leading UCSB's offense were Mitchell Hamilton, Shane Hauschild, and Boris Jovanovic with two goals apiece. Reed Cotterill, Tommy Fellner, Thomas Martinho, and Cameron Yates also contributed one goal each to push the Gauchos to the victory.

Cotterill also picked a team high four steals for Santa Barbara. Opportunities were made by Samar Alkateb with his four drawn exclusions.

In the cage senior goalkeeper Liam Lenihan was the gatekeeper for the Gauchos (17-6, 5-0) with a recorded eight saves, one assists and two steals.

Cotterill broke an 8-8 tie in the fourth period and Shane Hauschild added a goal to give the Gauchos the Golden Coast Conference win.

Cotterill was able beat a player on the inside to score the first goal of the quarter to put the Gauchos up by one. In the last minute, Hauschild converted on an amazing skip shot to crush the Waves' comeback hopes.

Pepperdine's sophomore Marko Asic scored a game-high five goals.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
