SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Junior midfielder Tristan Ngoon's free kick in the 71st minute found the back of the net, proving to be the game-winner, as UC Davis earned its first victory of the season with a 2-1 win over San Francisco State in a California Collegiate Athletic Association women's soccer game Saturday afternoon.
With the win the Aggies move to 1-2-1 on the season, 1-1 in CCAA play with the Gators fall to 4-2 overall, 1-1 in conference action.
UC Davis got on the board early on as junior midfielder Leifa Mayers scored an unassisted goal just two minutes into the game for the 1-0 lead. The Gators would record the equalizer in the 22nd minute as Maya Patrick took a pass from Jessica Pearson and beat Aggie goalkeeper Krystyn Lizak for San Francisco State's only goal of the contest.
The score remained tied at 1-1 over the next 50 minutes before Ngoon recorded her first goal of the season. Coming off a free kick just outside the 18-yard box, Ngoon's blast beat Gator keeper Marie Gutto for the winning score.
For the contest the Aggies outshot the Gators, 12-11, while Lizak recorded a career-high seven saves on the day.
UC Davis will next be in action on Tuesday when it continues CCAA play with a 4:30pm matchup at Chico State.
