UCSB Women’s Soccer Drops 1-0 Decision at Fullerton

FULLERTON —  Connie Caliz scored a goal in the ninth-minute of action to lead Cal State Fullerton to a 1-0 win over UC Santa Barbara on Sunday evening. The loss takes the Gauchos out of Big West Tournament contention.

UCSB (6-8-4 overall, 2-4-1 in Big West) needed a victory against the Titans (10-4-3, 3-2-1) to sustain hopes of advancing the four-team Big West Conference Tournment. 

Caliz scored her second goal of the season at the 8:29 mark. Atlanta Primus took a corner kick and the ball was touched by Gaucho goalkeeper Maddie Julian, but it was still bouncing around in front of the net and Caliz took advantage, booting it into the left side of the goal.

Santa Barbara threatened, particularly in the first half, when Madeline Gibson blasted a pair of shots on goal. However, Titan goalkeeper Morgan Bertsch was up to the task, recording three saves. Freshman Christine Maurer had a late shot on goal, but it was saved by Bertsch. Julian saved two of the the three shots that she faced.

The Gauchos will complete their season on Sunday, Oct. 29 when they host Blue-Green rival Cal Poly. The match will be the final home contest for a quartet of seniors and it will kick off at 2 p.m. at Harder Stadium.

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!
