Women’s soccer preview

Teams: UC Davis at Pacific

Records: Aggies, 7-6-3 (2-4-1); Tigers, 9-7-1 (3-3-1)

Where: Stagg Memorial Stadium – Stockton

When: Sunday at noon

Who to watch: Danielle Contro and Molly Scott have spent the better part of a decade as teammates.

This weekend, their time will come to an end.

The UC Davis seniors who were high school teammates at St. Francis High will be playing in the final game of their careers in Sunday’s season finale.

Did you know? The last time UC Davis ended its season at Pacific, it walked away with a 1-0 win in 2006.

Preview: The Aggies may not be in the Big West Conference playoff hunt, but they have plenty to play for on Sunday in Stockton.

With a win or tie, the program will finish the year with a winning record for the first time since 2002. It can also complete the senior sendoff it began last week at Aggie Soccer Stadium.

At Senior Day, junior Marisa Hoge scored in the 30th minute and sophomore Sarah Peters posted her fourth shutout of the season in a 1-0 win over Cal Poly. The win concluded the home careers of Contro, Scott, Gabina Bohlman, Stephanie Schmidt and Brianna Tsui.

It was also the Aggies’ first victory over the Mustangs since the two teams began playing annually in 2004.

Pacific will honor lone senior Laura King before the game for the team’s Senior Day. King, a midfielder out of Livermore High, leads the team with 47 shots and is tied for fourth with six points.

Kristina Wavomba leads all Tigers (5-2-0 at home) with seven goals and 15 points. In their most recent home game, they fell to Cal Poly 2-0 on Oct. 24.

UC Davis was won three of its last four games against Pacific.
