DAVIS –  UC Santa Barbara men's soccer team fell flat in a 3-0 defeat at the hands of UC Davis a Big West Northern Division game on Wednesday afternoon,

The loss is the first for the Gauchos (5-5-3, 3-1-1 Big West) since a 2-1 defeat to St. John's (N.Y.) on Sept. 12, nearly one month ago. With the win, UC Davis (6-6-2, 3-1-1 Big West) moves into a tie for first with UCSB atop the North Division standings.

The Aggies got on the board early with a Lizandro Torres goal in the 16th minute of the match. Miguel Acevedo made a long run and dished the ball into the box for Torres, who shot up and over a charging Alan Carrillo.

UCSB tallied a trio of corner kicks in the first half, but mustered just one shot as UC Davis took control.

In the second half, the Aggies put the game away with a pair of goals just over one minute apart. In the 76thminute, Noah Wilson rebounded a shot and fired into the goal on the right side before Greg Salazar converted off a free kick in the 77th minute.

The Gauchos created a handful of chances and edged UC Davis 7-2 in corner kicks but were outshot 11-5 for the game. Michael led UCSB with two shots while Seo-In Kim, Ignacio Tellechea and Derek Kryzda also tallied shots in the game.

UCSB turns its focus towards a big matchup on Saturday night when it welcomes Cal Poly (5-7, 1-3 Big West) to Harder Stadium to kick off the annual Blue-Green Rivalry at 7:00 p.m. The game will be broadcasted on Fox Sports Prime Ticket.

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!
