Event: Cal State Fullerton at UC Davis, San Jose State at UC Davis
Teams: Titans 3-8; Spartans 6-5; Aggies 5-6-1
Where: Aggie Soccer Field
When: Friday at 3 p.m., Sunday at 1 p.m.
Who to watch: One of the few things Aggie soccer fans can be thankful for from last weekend was the play of freshman Kiele Argente.
The native of San Luis Obispo, Calif. put up some impressive statistics last weekend, taking two shots on goal against UC Irvine and getting an assist for the Aggies’ only goal of the weekend against Cal State Northridge.
Though quiet through the beginning of the season, she has heated up recently.
In the Aggies’ last home game against Montana, Argente took five shots, two of them on frame. She was also credited with an assist and scored a goal.
Did you know? The Aggies are undefeated at home, boasting a record of 2-0-1, which is good news as five of their next seven games are at home. Fullerton and San Jose both have difficulties going on the road, going 1-3 and 1-4, respectively.
Preview: Nothing can make a 6-0 loss last weekend feel any better.
Other than inflicting some punishment of your own.
The UC Davis soccer team limps back after a rough road trip last weekend, losing to both Cal State Northridge and UC Irvine 2-1, and 6-0, respectively.
Instead of taking the punishment, they look to inflict it upon the Titans and Spartans.
Last season, the women’s soccer team lost to the Fullerton 1-0. The women also fell to the SJSU in a double overtime heartbreaker.
Though their records suggest mediocrity, Fullerton has been the victim of an extremely difficult non-conference schedule, boasting high caliber teams like No. 14 BYU, No. 18 UNC and Nebraska.
Even though the Spartans dropped five of their first six games, something changed. San Jose State has won their last five games. Fatigue may play a factor as the Spartans play Hawaii two days before traveling to Aggie Soccer Field to take on the Aggies.
