Box Score

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Jordan Keyes and Aaron Chandler each recorded a goal and an assist to lead the University of San Francisco to a 2-1 victory over UC Davis in front of 1,103 fans Thursday evening on the opening day of the diadora Classic at Negoesco Stadium.

The Dons got on the board first in the 24th minute when Keyes sent a cross inside the box that Chandler blasted in from eight yards out for the 1-0 lead. The score remained 1-0 for the next 60 minutes of play until Chandler returned the favor with a pass that got through the Aggie defense and put Keyes in a one-on-one situation with Aggie keeper Charles Warne. Keyes collected the pass and put it in the back of the net for the 2-0 lead.

UC Davis answered less than a minute later as at the 85:21 mark, freshman Nicholas Lind took a pass from Darren Hammond, turned and beat Don keeper Mark Muleady, cutting the lead to 2-1. Over the last four minutes the Aggies could not get the equalizer as USF came away with the win in the season-opener for both teams.

The Dons outshot UC Davis, 18-7, on the afternoon, forcing Warne to make five saves in the contest.

UC Davis continues play at the diadora Classic on Saturday when it faces No.5 Santa Clara beginning at 5 pm.
