SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – No. 12 UC Santa Barbara scored six times on Tuesday night as the Gauchos defeated visiting Cal State Fullerton, 6-0, at Meredith Field at Harder Stadium. Senior Luis Silva and sophomore David Opoku each scored twice to lead UCSB to its third-straight victory.
The Gaucho onslaught continued with Silva's second strike in the 74th minute. Fifi Baiden passed the ball from behind the midfield line to Silva, who was 25-yards out from the goal. The midfielder chipped the ball over Whiddon – who was off his line – and into the Titan goal.
Goalkeeper André Grandt made three saves on his way to his sixth shutout of the season. Whiddon made four saves for Fullerton.
