Sept. 3, 2000
San Jose, Calif. -
After piling up four goals in its season-opening win Friday night, the UC Santa Barbara men's soccer team was unable to put the ball in the net on Sunday as they lost at San Jose State, 2-0.
The Spartans scored both of their goals in the first half. Dan Fife scored an unassisted goal at the 18:30 mark and just over ten minutes later, at the 29:16 mark, Isaias Bardales scored on an assist from Jorge Martnez. The final 60:00 of the match was scoreless.
Senior Trent Ulicny started in goal for UCSB, but he was ejected with just over a minute to play in the first half. He was replaced by freshman Erik Stolhandske. Junior forward Jaime Ambriz, who scored two goals Friday, was also ejected. Ambriz was red carded with only two seconds remaining in the first half.
San Jose State outshot the Gauchos by a margin of 18-13. Spartan goalkeeper Chris Humphries recorded the shutout and had seven saves. Thiago Martins led UCSB with three shots while four other Gauchos had two shots apiece.
The loss drops UCSB to 1-1 on the season. They return to action on the road next weekend when they travel to the Blue Grass State of Kentucky. On Friday, September 8, they play at Western Kentucky and on Sunday, September 10 they will play at the University of Kentucky.
